The Greek Escape from the Troika program discovered at last: default online

ONLY MICROSOFT DRIVEL CAN SAVE GREECE NOW

Some of our best Grecophile brainboxes here at The Slog have been analysing the remaining options open to the Athens Government over the last 72 hours – in these, the last 120 hours before the eleventh hour with no time but our shirts to lose reaches the stroke of midnight when them Troikanauts’ leerrrv gonna come tumblin’ down/ and they gonna take you Greece and hold you/an’ do all the things they told you/ in the midnight hour oh yes/in the midnight hour.

But at the very last minute, just before the very last second chance to see sense, we think we have – at the last gasp just before the final tape – found a way to make the Troika see stars.

It’s so simple, I can’t believe nobody did it earlier: just go to control panel, click on default programs, scroll down to ‘debt’ and double-click on ‘options’, choose ‘default online’, click ‘Advanced’ and then choose ‘Enable Troika script debugging’.

The four unassailable advantages this will give the Greek Government are as follows:

1. The Troika won’t know what the Syriza default program is

2. The script debugging App will share (without asking permission) a deconstruction of Schäuble, Finnish, Dieselboom and Slovak bollocks with Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin, and Fox News

3. The CIA will never guess that the program file has been automatically saved in the default folder c//users:catflap1703cantona\temp

4. When the UK’s GCHQ Enigma machine finally does locate the file, the Google translate function will inform the Troika that there has been a non-successional sale of unyielding spikes indebted to bearish fixatives.

I think we can safely assume that, come Wednesday lunchtime, the white flags will be waving from buildings in Brussels and Frankfurt. Hurrah.

  1. I’ve already said what Greece should do with their currency,actually paying back what the bank run as taken will seriously damage the countries receiving it!,they should call in all debts owed to them immediately
    However o/t British politics as sunk even lower than ever before,the deliberate effort for members of one party to infiltrate & interfere with the due process of that party has no place in a civilized country & for no politicians to come out & criticise such blatant manipulation is a very dangerous prescient not to go unchallenged ,Britain’s now confirmed as a banana monarchy

  2. “All these developments certainly bring further panic to the Western economic oligarchy which sees that the balance could change rapidly in the European battlefield. With these puppets in power, Europe has no chance to compromise with Greece, find a real solution and change course for the benefit of the people. The only perspective for the moment is a big ‘collision’ after the end of the truce period, or, maybe earlier. The battle outcome always depends on how the European people will react …”

  3. Any reasonable person will get in line at a Greek bank and wait hoping that some money is still inside. Good luck because it looks like that in a few days the banks will be out of cash.Now my Greek friends is the time to take your Euros and hide them under your mattress……..Do it NOW

  4. When I went to a local pharmacie yesterday, and it came to pay, I noticed…no..it can’t be…aarrrghhhhhh, it is…it’s a €10 ‘Y’ note!

    There it was, half-hidden, skulking amongst the other ‘U’ notes. Immediately, with consummate skill, I plucked it out and cunningly concealing the serial number, palmed it to the pharmacist…who accepted it without query, and handed back change without so much as a glance. Phew…gotcha…what a sucker!

  5. troika want the greek pensions next. these are people who have paid in for years while working and have robbed or borrowed no thing at all from the troika. So the troika want to take that which has been paid for by innocent people. A bit like smash and grab. Smash greece and grab anything they can get. Democracy is all that is stopping them. I for one do hope that david can kill goliath.

  6. I remember Hugh Hendry discussing the Euro identifiers a couple (or more?!) years ago, pointing out that each country has its own marker, stating that some Euros are more equal than others. Prescient.

  7. When am I gonna make a living?
    It’s gonna take a while before I give in
    See the people fussing and thieving
    While the sharks are wheeling and dealing
    Gotta look up and tell yourself, there’s no end to what you can do
    They’ll waste your body and soul if you allow them to
    This is time to start believing in yourself
    Put the blame on no-one else
    When am I gonna make a living?
    It’s gonna take a while before I give in
    See the people fussing and stealing
    Too many lies, no-one is achieving
    Haven’t I told you before
    We’re hungry for a life we can’t afford?
    There’s no end to what you can do
    If you give yourself a chance to prove
    We’re hungry but we won’t give in
    Hungry but we won’t give in
    Hungry but we won’t give in
    Hungry but we won’t give in

    Hungry but we won’t give in
    When am I gonna make a living?
    It’s gonna take a while before I give in, yes it is
    I’m sick and tired of scratching a living
    I am hungry but I’m not gonna give in, no
    Hungry but we won’t give in
    Hungry but we won’t give in
    Hungry but we won’t give in
    Hungry but we’re gonna win
