GREEK CRISIS: Crucifixion ‘not ruled out’ for Greeks who voted OXI

Alexis Tsipras was tonight “strongly resisting” the suggestion from German Eurocleansing Minister Wolfgang Schutzstaffel that “Europe needs more than just worthless Greek promises before handing over the hard-earned money honestly made by Germans supplying cutting-edge under the radar invisible submarines to the soviet military in Athens”.

The suggestion put to this, the last and final farewell tour this is it no more shit emergency our patience is exhausted Eurosummit by Herr Sturmbile, is apparently that Berlin should hold all Cretians hostage for safe keeping until such time as the stringvested Communists of Syriza have demonstrated “a consistent track record of repaying all new bailout monies made out to the Wolfie Wheeliebin Self-Pïty Appeal”.

Tonight, a snap poll of of Athenians conducted by Allock&Bollocks Research showed a 78% majority in favour of the Cretian hostages being summarily shot come what may.

“We have seen these empty words and staged shots of Greeks searching in trash cans for food so many times before,” Herr Wolverrückt Schnitzelgrüber added reasonably, “but this time they must back up their false promises by obeying orders we have given at all times as to how all Europeans are equal and the Germans are good law-abiding members of the European Union, an ideal for which our woefully misunderstood Führer strove at all times”.

As 26 EU finmins rose to their feet in rapturously robotic applause, Dutch eurogroupe Commissar Jelly Drivelbloke appealed for the meeting to give the Greek delegation a fair hearing prior to its hanging by piano wire for extreme and seditiously peaceful resistance to the Triumph of the Will of the small number of unelected eurogroupe people interpreting the Will of the unrepresented People.

“I must stress,” said CDU MP Martin Schulz, “that the crucifixion of all those Greek voters known to have opposed our generous bailout terms has not as yet been ruled out”.

Ruled out of order for rising to his feet in order to answer the charges laid against Greece by Feldmarschal Wolf Gangrene, Prime Minister Tsipras was given 500 lines (‘I must not interrupt my betters when they are shitting on me’) by Head Prefect Onkle Drunker. Tsipras promised solemnly to hand them in by 6 am the following morning. The German delegation agreed – with the proviso that, for every minute the Greek PM was late, one Elgin marble would be sentenced to death.

  6. Back in top satyric form John!

    The sad living specimen of the failed WWII Nazi experiment to cross-breed human and wolf, Lupinotuum Torquens Rotam is the scientific name, did act as expected and stated the usual bollocks about insufficient proposals, lack of trust etc. which the, quite successful, Dutch experiment to cross-breed Gouda cheese with a bad hairdresser was too happy and prompt to relay it to the MSM.
    Well, we have seen this horror b-movie so many times in the last 5 years or so that it makes no impact whatsoever. The shock doctrine policy imposed on Hellas is losing its efficacy so I expect a few innovative fear-mongering tactics to be employed in the next few days.
    In another comment I said about LTR’s stance “It is not clear yet whether this is an attempt to cut a bigger piece of flesh or to enforce a Grexit or whatever without explicitly demanding it.”
    It seems that “whatever” looks like being a winner at this point since:
    a) A “mutually beneficial agreement” is totally out of the question. It would hurt Wolfie’s feelings too much. Moreover, we are, irreversibly I’m afraid, in the realm of a zero-sum game and this is not coincidental.
    b) A “Grexit” also seems rather out of the question. I heard through the grapevine that the chocolate-covered “Kenyan Muslim” (in the words of Frau A) would be seriously upset. However, there is a sort of OXI-moron here. According to trusted sources, the above mentioned Lupinotuum Torquens Rotam has been, for quite some time, the favourite pet of the CCKM when he’s in Europe on vacation. So, can the pet go against his Master’s will? A recent incident of LTR howling at his Master: “I veel bailout Puerto Rico if you veel bailout those Griechische Untermensch” was attributed to signs of an early stage of a condition resembling Doberman’s Sydrome.

    Thus, it seems that the most likely outcome of the “negotiations” will be a compromise with two possible variants:

    1) Acceptance of the Greek proposal, signing of a deal, attempts by the current government to implement it, most likely a failure and, eventually, new elections sometime in the Fall, or
    2) Demands for more severe measures that Syriza is de facto unable to accept BUT the willing and waiting alliance for “Europe and Democracy” (ND, PASOK, POTAMI, DIMAR etc) can happily accomodate as long as it gets back in power. In this case the obvious scenario is that Syriza is immediatly out and a “national emergency government” is in without elections.

    In both variants Syriza, sooner or later, is out. In today’s EU there, simply, is no room for a policy which opposes, even at a symbolic and rhetorical level, the dominance of the neoliberal casino-type capitalism. This is sad.

    However what is TRAGIC is that there is not a single coherent, viable, sustainable and safe alternative for Hellas in the of the present economic, geopolitical and geostrategic context.

    Being an Έλληνας that has chosen the path of Αρετή rather than the path of Κακία I do not expect or wish for a Deus ex Machina intervention.

    However I know too well that the true nature of the “European Project” is nothing short of a modern day version of Ύβρις (not against the Gods’ Will but against the Ecumenical Moral Imperative which is grounded such simple principles as Common Decency and Common Sense).

    I hope you all realise that when Ύβρις is commited Νέμεσις gets restless and brings justice upon the guilty.

  19. The old cliché I know, but ‘Banks and not tanks’ did the trick.

    O/T a bit, but your reference to ‘lazy idle gits’. I read Lord of the Flies, Animal Farm etc. in the mid-70’s (school set reading).

    It spurred me on to read Orwell’s 1984 some years later, probably because people were beginning to talk about it with the 1984 calendar being published only a couple of years away.

    Some weeks ago, and with all that’s going on throughout the world, I dug the book out, and started to read it again. I was blown away, I’d completely forgotten how the book begins:

    ‘The voice came from an oblong metal plaque like a dulled mirror which formed part of the surface of the right-hand wall. Winston turned a switch and the voice sank somewhat, though the words were still distinguishable. The instrument (the telescreen, it was called) could be dimmed, but there was no way of shutting it off completely.’

    and next page:

    ‘The telescreen received and transmitted simultaneously. Any sound that Winston made, above the level of a very low whisper, would be picked up by it, moreover, so long as he remained within the field of vision which the metal plaque commanded, he could be seen as well as heard. There was of course no way of knowing whether you were being watched at any given moment. How often, or on what system, the Thought Police plugged in on any individual wire was guesswork. It was even conceivable that they watched everybody all the time. But at any rate they could plug in your wire whenever they wanted to. You had to live — did live, from habit that became instinct — in the assumption that every sound you made was overheard, and, except in darkness, every movement scrutinized.’

    Here we are today, wallowing in laziness and idleness, playing with with our mobile telescreens, wasting our lives on social-media, being tracked and monitored whilst we do it. It’s us who are the idiots…

  20. I was lucky to get out alive! We found a nice little taverna and were making small talk about human rights and radical left politics, as you do, over some dolmades and souvlaki, when in walked Stavros Theodorakis; he sat down at the next table and ordered the cheese pie. Zoi went crazy, she told him to go and jump in the river and threw a glass of retsina at him but he ducked and Alexis – who we hadn’t noticed was sitting at a nearby table eating his humble pie – caught it full in the face. The head waiter, who had a thick German accent, asked us to leave and we tumbled into the street where my old chastity belt got caught on a lamp post. Zoi stormed off, muttering some very rude things about medieval Dutch art, and I was overtaken by a vision of the Angela of Death. I must admit that I don’t get out much these days but you can rest assured that I’ll be staying in from now on…

    In fact for Greece this is kind of a nice but still painful option, they get to stay in the EU but revert to their own currency once more “just like the UK tried to join the EZ but had to withdraw” on black monday. Then along comes the Lisbon Treaty that would sign us into the EZ even though we now know as Greece is showing it has serious flaws for HUMANITIES CURRENT FAILED STYLE OF ECONOMY! Creating money out of nothing to balance budgets = government debt, dire in a 0 growth world that is just paying more for the same or even less.

    The main reason of Nuland’s visit to Greece is to prevent it from rapprochement with BRICS, and especially Russia. Greece is the NATO member state, and taking into account Washington discontent with Tsipras celebrating Victory Day on May, 9 in Moscow, it can be assumed, he may have a more tragic fortune than Kennedy had.
    They have already started demonizing Tsipras government and international creditor’s acts may be compared with those of terrorists, as Varoufakis did.

    I’ll just spin the black circle ’cause it’s been a while since I’ve heard those songs.

    Alright then, I’m back.

    Hmmm, Objects in the Rear View Mirror:

    The first part (before the instrumental solo) has clear worrying undertones regarding SYRIZA, Greece and Tsipras himself (my emphasis):
    “…and there was so much Left to dream…”,
    “…They say he crashed and burned, I swear I’ll never learn, why any boy should die so young…”,
    “….There were endless winters and the dreams would freeze. Nowhere to hide and no leaves on the trees…”,
    “…And though the nightmares should be over, some of the terrors are still intact…”.

    The second part (after the instrumental solo), however, has got me perplexed:

    “…and SHE taught me everything I’ll ever know, about the mystery and the MUSCLE of love…” (WHAT GIVES?!?!?!?!)

    “…SHE used her body just like a bandage
    SHE used my body just like a WOUND
    I’ll probably never know where SHE disappeared,
    but I can see rising up out of the back seat now,
    just like an ANGELA rising out of a tomb…”.

    Several apocalyptic paintings of a certain Early Netherlandish Painter are haunting my mind right now.

    Song number two, Wolf at Your Door, sums-up perfectly the proceedings of last night’s and today’s Eurogroup meeting.

  30. As John has pointed out before, there was never going to be a deal, each time the Greek government went with a proposal it was deemed to require ‘a bit more work’, when they looked like they were flagging they were told ‘it is nearly ok’, ‘just a bit more work’.

    I think Varoufakis and Tsipras knew this and had the referendum to bring things to a head.

    They are going through the motions because the Greek people want to stay in both the EZ and EU.

    Ultimately it will be seen that the Germans are calling all the shots and the Germans will be held responsible for the breakup of the whole EZ/EU project if Greece is forced to leave.

    Everybody knows that even with the best will in the world the debt cannot not be repaid.

    No mechanism for leaving or eviction was built in, the Germans would have to create it.

    Even the Germans know that none of the other members would allow that because it could/would be used against them.

    The choice is ‘one out – all out’ or ‘Federal Superstate’

    Only the second option is achievable but cannot be sold to the Northerners at the moment.

    Although the various accounts by witnesses differ significantly, I managed to put this together:
    First, you engaged in a mildly heated debate about the impact of Early Netherlandish painting on the modern-day truthspeak.
    Then, with the heat rising, you proceeded to briefly argue about the validity of the Subject-Object Metaphysics from the critical viewpoint of the Metaphysics of Quality. Rumours that in the heat of the moment you were heard to shout “Plato, that reactionary swine” have yet to be confirmed .
    The setting itself did not provide the neccesary “calm waters” to ease the tention: Benny the “Fatso” Veryzealous was quietly eating his table (having finished with the food, the plates and cuttlery), Alexis was sitting with Yanis at another table playing chicken (Yanis blinked first), and then Stavros entered axactly when you two were at the peak of a very heated argument on a minor footnote from “The Negative Dialectics of Poodle Play” by Frank Zappa.
    I think that the appearance of Stavros was the necessary but not the sufficient condition for the cataclysmic explosion that ensued.
    However, you standing up on the table and reciting, verbatim, a whole page from Finnegan’s Wake, with a gusto that would put to shame most, if not all, of the surviving members of the C.R.A.F.T. Club was the sufficient condition.
    After that, Zoi in a state of sacred fury kicked Stavros’s μέζεα mercilessly until he was crying like a little bitch, stuffed a whole Proscutoed Pig’s Leg in Benny’s throat and started moving menacingly towards Alexis’s table shouting indecipherable insults in the spirit of “You lousy revisionist coward etc.etc.) before proceeding with some very rude things about medieval Dutch art and a particular Flemish Primitive.

  39. @KJH – that is a chilling development and something we should all be trying to do something about rather than exchange flippancies. It is frighteningly reminiscent of pre-war Nazi Germany. Who will now dare speak out on this particular issue? And what threats were whispered to whoever at the W. Highland “Free” (!!!) Press had the power to sack the man who helped found it??
    This whole scenario is becoming very alarming.
