13 August 2015 — The ‘real’ Left is here !!!
¡Hasta la Victoria Siempre!, Vive la révolution and Allahu Akbar to everyone. I greet you with the magnificent news that Comrade Lafazanis is to launch a new ‘anti-memorandum’ party.
I have been waiting for these news for a while now. After the original Anti-MOU party, New Democracy became government and started implementing austerity, after the de-rigueur Anti-MOU party Syriza became government and brought us ‘Bailout 3: The Return’, the country was gagging for a novel party to take the mantle of the anti-memorandum fight.
Lafazanis proclaims to be the genuine expression of the glorious OXI vote of the Greferendum. He is to lead the ‘I want to have my cake and eat it’ camp of the glorious, revolutionary left in Greece. He surely will have at the forefront Kostantopoulou, Lapavitsas and I am guessing Yanis Varoufakis, unless this grouping is a little too low brow and old style ‘workers in caps’ stuff for Yani.
I do hope that this split in Syriza and the upcoming election will allow political parties to stop the BS and come clean in front of the Greek people. Is there a party that can ‘negotiate’ better? No! We tried this with ND, tried it with Syriza and we are where we are, with a new Bailout.
The only point of new political formations (pretending to be the ‘real’ left, the banana-republic heart of Syriza) is to argue for a return to the Drachma.
Lafazanis needs the courage to campaign for the Drachma. Kostantopoulou with her Adolphian rhetorical skills needs the courage to campaign for the Drachma. Lapavitsas needs to stop bifurcating and explain what a return to the Drachma means.Yanis…. I don’t know what Yanis is trying to do.
The others, ND, PASOK (whoever is left), Potami need to join forces (as Hugo Dixon keeps arguing in fact) and run on a Euro platform.
Is this pro-austerity? Is this pro-subjugation? It is life vs BS, this is what it is.
Life under the Drachma will be unimaginably worse. Life under the Drachma run by the couch-revolutionaries of the likes of Lafazanis will make North Korea seem efficient.
No more BS, we need an election so the people can take ownership of this mess and admit to the problem (even without seeing a solution). Election as Catharsis.
By the way, why doesn’t the Syriza splinter faction join KKE? Oh, they are still Euro-communists. I see. Makes sense. We should not confuse the Judean People’s Front with the People’s Front of Judea
