Neoliberal Syriza bites the Electoral Dust
Syriza loses the elections but with margins that are marginal in relation to to the votes achieved in 2015. It only loses 150k votes but the margins are big enough as ND gains 770k and around 8% difference between the two parties. The voting electorate approximately 50% of the total electorate wanted to primarily penalise them on two specific issues: unfettered immigration and the Prespes Agreement as this was shown in the voting patterns in the Thessaloniki region and the Aegean islands (Lesvos, Samos etc.) The vote was worse for Syriza during the Euroelections but picked up for the national elections six weeks later which begs the question why the snap elections?
An analysis of the voting patterns in particular the Greater Athens region shows that in poorer districts Syriza beat ND which is logical as people have a short memory as the last time they were in power in a coalition with PASOK they oversaw mass sackings and wage and pension cuts. People felt that under the electoral system as presently exists the choice is limited. They wanted to penalise Syriza but not enough to grant ND absolute electoral immunity. ND did gain an absolute electoral majority and did go from 18% in 2012 to 39% in 2019, leaving everyone with the idea that it actually gained new followers not just an electoral swing. Looking at its pre-election rallies they were essentially non existent and the actual tone of the elections were almost silent which i’snt the character of Greek elections ever.
The GD Circus…
Its rise was predicated by the specific social conditions in the actual centre of Athens whereby unfettered immigration in the early 2000 era led to mass disturbances in an area known as Ag. Panteleimonas. It went from 0.1% to around 7% but its rise was cut short when they refused to back Samaras collapsing government and they were blamed for the murder of a rapper. At the time there was an international hue and cry that Greek Nazis were about to march to power raising the ‘far left’ profile of Syriza which was fighting allegedly to keep Greece on a democratic pro-austerity pro- EU path. The call for bans of GD were made precisely to ensure no Greeks ever complained that their country was being overrun by all and sundry under the guise of fleeing war zones, so many in fact that over 70 nationalities were registered as arriving!
GD and its leader Mihaloliakos are Deep State USA from the era of the 1960’s Colonels Junta. They never had any intention either of either rocking the boat or doing anything that went against the establishment apart from allowing pent up feelings to be vented. Now they didn’t get in or agree to not get in as they didn’t meet the threshold of 3% for a few hundred votes as allegations have surfaced that Mihaloliakos agreed to this as a quid pro quo of not allowing too many of its members to be prosecuted now they don’t have parliamentary immunity anymore. The ridiculousness of this outfit is the belief that it could actually reach power based on its ridiculous slogans of fighting and burying ‘bolsheviks’ and tainting all those in Syriza as being hard left ‘communists’ when they were Merkelites pure and simple.
Another state funded pointless organisation that exists only due to the civil war era and government subsidies. It achieved just around +15k votes more than its historic low of 277k in the Troika decade of austerity losing around half its electoral base. Its leader having come out against both the Greek Referendum in 2015, against Brexit in 2016 and against what they term the ‘capitalist Drachma’ in support of the Euro, they exist only to exist as they have a large parasitical organisation they have to fund which does nothing.
During the last ND-Samaras government they helped derail the Steelworkers strike alongside GD that stood on its strike platforms for which they probably got a backhander allowing them to sell government tv licences granted to them or buildings they owned in the centre that are bought by the state and now being in a bind they have had to produce their newspaper missing out their Sunday edition which used to be the recruitment one. Now the government has announced they want to end the asylum from police interference in the Universities (granted through struggle after the Polytechnic Rising in 1973) so as to try to control uncontrolled criminality by migrant blow ins who sell drugs and cigarettes, the KKE will probably aid ND in controlling any resistance to these measures.
What we notice is that Greek peoples rights are curtailed constantly due to migrants. They cant go out at night in certain areas, old people are frightened of going to the bank alone or coming home, now students lose their rights to study without police interference as the state itself allowed uncontrolled immigration into the country. In this game the Greek people lose and the rent a mob migrants are used to justify anything in line with the globalist parties that make up the Greek Parliament
Will govern like May in the UK. Will be anti-racist pro -trans and will be implementing the next phase of the programme agreed by Syriza and Merkel. Merkel was already quoted in Kathimerini on 11th July that ‘Mitsotakis must stick to the programme’. Syriza will obviously help where it can in particular in specific areas: in foreign policy and how it impacts on Greek society.
ND pursued a policy of trying to gain back ‘far right’voters that it lost first to LAOS then to GD over issues related to crime and immigration and to allegedly go against Syrizas cultural programme in support of LGBT, migrants etc. But this is all for show. As on none of the major issues does ND disagree ie. Prespes, migration centres, crime etc. For show they can of course pull out the bike squad police as they did under Samaras who became famous in chasing protestors but also in doing migrant checks in the city centres. But the uncontrolled immigration was never really criticised by ND as evidenced when riots broke out in places like Kos they were nowhere to be seen.
Illuminating is an article that appeared in all places from the zionists in Haaretz showing the real neo-nazi roots of New Democracy as opposed to GD who weren’t even around in the period where collaboration with the 3rd Reich, when they mention that at the end of the ‘1950’s came the Max Merten scandal when the Nazi commander of Thessaloniki (aka Sallnika) who was responsible for the transfer of 45k Jews to death camps, was given an amnesty by the then Prime Minister Karamanlis following a controversial trial in which he was sentenced to 25 years hard labour.” 9th July Achilles M Peklaris
Karatzaferis who went to set up LAOS had within his midst three characters who were characterised by severe anti-communism allegedly anti-migrant and pro- privatisation: Voridis, Georgiadis and Plevris. Loe and behold all three are now with Mitsotakis and two of them have become core government ministers the lawyer by trade Voridis Agricultural Secretary and the book seller Georgiades the Minister of Development. The ‘old wine in new bottle in a nutshell, people with no knowledge of anything given ministries they have no clue about in that sense maintaining a dishonourable tradition.
Greece’s new Prime Minister, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, is the son of a former prime minister. His older sister was Foreign Minister of Greece and his cousin is the New Democracy mayor of Athens. Mitsotakis clan are one of the main factions in ND have no real national rootws or power base within any electoral area despite originating from Chania and being related to Eleftherios Venizelos who expanded Modern Greece in the Balkan wars. They are known as blackmarketeers in ancient minoan artefacts in the big auction houses around the world and are very close friends with the Bush clan they supported the supranational interest of the transnational elites. But this elite is now split between a globalist and a nation state based faction. Mitsotakis new government is Soros infested along with a Bilderburg presence.
According to the Vima Newspaper based on British Foreign Office releases Mitsotakis (the father) was a British spy handing over information to the Brits as he was a lawyer acting for Greeks under the German Occupation authories during the war.
Having joined Enosi Kentrou the Union of the Centre (Papandreous grandfather party in the mid-1960’s) during the struggles for post war democracy against the Cold War state he collapsed the government paving the way for the Colonels Junta. And subsequently after being exiled in Paris and returning to Greece with the fall of the Junta he worked with Mikis Theodorakis and the Americans to forestall the possibility of a left wing turn of Greece (as noted in Theodorakis speech at the inauguration of the ‘Spitha’ movement). The son who is the current PM was a minister under Samaras and spent most of his time sacking government employees the most famous case being those of the cleaners in Parliament, school caretakers and Council police. Mitsotakis was so far up Merkels rear he came out at the other end creating the conditions for the ‘left’ role of Syriza but when it came to the 3rd Bailout both Syriza and New Democrcy voted for it….
Prior to being elected Mitsotakis announced tomorrrow ‘we will have clear skies and a new dawn of development will occur’ whilst also stating in a Cabinet meeting we ‘aim to build bridges not walls’. No sooner had the words been spoken Mitsotakis was faced with a weather wars attack Halkidiki leaving 7 dead, most of the steel electrictiy pylons uprooted from a concrete base and hundreds of thousands of hectares of farm produce destroyed. This all occurred after he announced he would be directly in charge of the Greek secret service (obviously to try an control foreign infiltration which has been an issue since the Karamanlis govt was overthrown by the USA over Southstream)
Mitsotakis is trying to ride a horse once more at both ends, pro-USA and pro-Merkel. But Merkel seeks open borders and the massivee destruction of all Greek entrepeneurial activity to buy everything for peanuts and to flood Greece with migrant blow ins from her pal Erdogan. She also seeks the co-management of the Aegean sea and its energy resources and her point man in Greece the ex-PM Simitis wrote that in an article in Greece and was reprimanded by Pyatt for it (who then mysteriously fell of his bike first breaking both legs then not breaking them but his hip) which also happens to be the Syriza position with the infamous slogan they have ‘the Aegean belongs to its fish’ whilst at the same time having no issue selling off mineral deposits to multinational corporations like Total or Exxon with Israeli security thrown in.
