Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Private and Public sector employees, are now mostly precarious workers, and poor by yesterday's standards. I think we should forget the previous social structure of Greece, that is unless there is some sort of a fight back. PASOK has nothing to offer to its former clients. It's political remnants are heading to all conceivable political directions.

DIMAR is a bubble. I agree. But if there are elections soon, it will be a bubble that will have secured political clout. This will preserve it and transform it - maybe. I'm not sure. In Argentina the local PASOK created its own left offshoots and helped society. I think that the current PASOK is even more deeply corrupt than the Peronists, if one could imagine that. Should some of the not-so-obviously-corrupt cadres start their own party, perhaps they might preserve the party. Perhaps.
