The latest European politician to endorse Mario Draghi’s Plan 10 from Outer Space is Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras. As usual with the Euro-elite, Samaras envisions a doomsday scenario outside the euro – and utterly embarrasses himself in the process.
Here’s how Samaras portrayed a hypothetical return to the drachma in Greece (Telegraph):
If we left the euro, pensions wouldn’t be cut; they simply wouldn’t exist. There would be no spending on medicine. Petrol wouldn’t be more expensive: it would be rationed . . . Greece would die
Yes, he actually said that, “Greece would die.”
I’m not sure what scares me more: that he thinks he can get away with nonsense like this, or that he actually believes it, in which case Greece is led by a government afflicted with mass hysteria.
Either way, it appears Greece will be ruined to save the euro.
Heaven help then when it becomes clear the euro can’t be saved anyway.
