Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

The Socialists claim that if they ever come into power the first thing they'll do is renegotiate the aid programme, although you always need willing creditors to have such negotiation.

See the current Greek government, which promised the same upon its formation, and where are we now. But the real idiots aren't the parties, but voters who buy into such a transparently stillborn idea and end up voting for more austerity.

Now, assuming you end up with earlier new elections or there won't be big changes in voting trends until June 2014, what fields would (could) a new more-of-the-same government target with new cuts?

(Grammar note: you don't need the "of" between June and 2014.)

To your question: I'd expect cuts on retirement programmes and a large slash of public workers.

I just like the 'of' between them.
