Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.
Display:
Claiming a situation of emergency - check!

Running through an economic program that impoverishes most of the population - check!

Doing so without anyone having time to read it (including the parliamentarians) - check!

Landing blow upon blow - check!

Actually depressing the economy and using that as an argument for further "reform" - check!

Yes, it is shock-doctrine.

Continuing the list, if these bums are voted out, the new ones will be treated to seminars on how anything but keeping the result of the reforms.

Hopefully the protests and strikes can affect things, and hopefully that in turn will not be thwarted by military forces.

Sweden's finest (and perhaps only) collaborative, leftist e-newspaper Synapze.se
