Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Alexis Tsipras: Interview with the European Left (14 May 2014)
Alexis Tsipras may become the next Prime Minister of Greece. Indeed, if elections were held today he would win, according to surveys. He almost became the PM two years ago, in the last elections; he was one point short of a win. The popular support of his campaign scared conservatives, not only in Grece but throughout Europe. Many political and other forces banded against him, claiming that if SYRIZA won, the party would take Greece out of the Euro and EZ, and that chaos would ensue. This was a blatant lie meant to scare citizens. SYRIZA is, and has been, committed to keeping Greece in Europe. SYRIZA wants to help reform Europe, and to increase democracy.  

A society committed to the notion that government is always bad will have bad government. And it doesn't have to be that way. — Paul Krugman
