IMF Boss Christine Lagarde Insults Greeks, Going Way of German Dictator Angela Merkel

Lagarde has just as much to loose as worldwide IMF crimes will be completely exposed with fall of EU

The Government is making contingency plans to cope with a potential increase in immigration should the euro currency collapse, the Home Secretary has revealed.


DESPERATE:  In addition to jail, Lagarde would loose ill-gotten gains
There is rising concern that Greece will be forced to abandon the euro after five years of recession, two bailouts and rising anger among voters over draconian austerity measures.

Political leaders in the European Union and Germany have said the euro will survive even if Greece leaves - despite warnings that it would start a domino effect among other troubled nations and cause a deep recession.

As EU citizens, Greeks are entitled to live and work in the UK and although there is no evidence of increased migration at present, the Home Secretary said it was "difficult to say how it is going to develop in coming weeks."

Theresa May told The Daily Telegraph: "It is right that we do some contingency planning on this (and) that is work that is ongoing."

There is strong support for anti-austerity parties in Greece ahead of a general election on June 17 after another vote earlier this month resulted in political deadlock.

The latest opinion polls suggest the conservative New Democracy party, which would continue to impose austerity, is extending its lead over the left-wing Syriza party, which claims it would reverse spending cuts.

In a warning to Greeks ahead of the election, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) boss Christine Lagarde said it was time they paid for the mistakes of the past.

Asked by The Guardian if she was concerned about Greeks who are suffering from life-changing austerity measures, Ms Lagarde said: "No, I think more of the little kids from a school in a little village in Niger who get teaching two hours a day, sharing one chair for three of them, and who are very keen to get an education.


Happier times:  Lagarde laughing at Greeks, poor people of world
"I have them in my mind all the time. Because I think they need even more help than the people in Athens.

"I also think about all those people who are trying to escape tax all the time. All these people in Greece who are trying to escape tax."

Social structures continue to deteriorate in Greece with claims by chemists that they are running out of medicine after a government funding freeze.

Germany Considers Use of Force Against Greece : Merkel, Fellow Criminals Now Desperate

Heil Merkel:  German dictator showing her ass to the world

On the Relevance of Democracy

ATHENS/BERLIN:

In the run-up to new elections in Greece, the German elite is discussing various scenarios involving the use of force to ensure control over Athens, including the establishment of a protectorate or the deployment of "protection forces" in that southern European country. The German austerity dictate, pushing Greece into destitution, is provoking growing popular resistance, which, apparently, can no longer be suppressed with democratic means.


Merkel will go the way of predecessor Hitler
Berlin has failed in its efforts to force Athens into subordination by threatening to withdraw the Euro, as much as with its demand that Greece combines its parliamentary elections with a referendum on the question of remaining in the Euro zone. Berlin categorically rejects the option of retracting the austerity dictate and replacing it with stimulus programs, as is being demanded by leading economists world wide, even though the exclusion of Greece form the Euro zone threatens to push the currency, itself, into an abyss.

A Last Chance

After all attempts to form a government in Greece failed, last week, it appears that in the elections set for June 17, those forces will win a majority that are strictly opposing the German austerity dictate. Even with their slight majority in parliament, the three parties willing to implement the austerity program have not succeeded in forming a government. Polls are predicting their defeat. The fact that a majority in the Greek population would like to keep the Euro, is seen in Berlin and Brussels as a last chance to achieve a change in public opinion. Already before the announcement of new elections, German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schäuble declared that the Euro zone could easily cope with Greece's withdrawal. EU Trade Commissioner Karel De Gucht has just confirmed that the EU Commission and the European Central Bank (ECB) are already preparing for Greece's withdrawal. And, Jean-Claude Juncker, head of the Euro Group, is quoted saying that "if we would take a poll with secret ballots on Greece remaining in the Euro zone, an overwhelming majority would vote against it." The new elections are Greece's "last chance." If they do not furnish a majority for the austerity dictate, "it will be over."[1]

No Right to Respect

In addition, Berlin has obviously applied pressure on Athens to combine a referendum on remaining in the Euro zone with the elections. This tactic is aimed at weakening the opponents of austerity. According to reports, German Finance Minster Schäuble made this proposal already last Monday to his Greek counterpart at the meeting of the Euro finance ministers.[2] This proposal is obviously supported by the Chairman of the CDU/CSU parliamentary group in the Bundestag, Volker Kauder ("Now German will be spoken in Europe" [3]). A Greek government spokesman confirmed that Chancellor Angela Merkel urged Greek President Karolos Papoulias last Friday to implement the German plan for a Greek referendum, whereas in November 2011, Berlin briskly rebuffed the Prime Minister at the time, Giorgos Papandreou, when he publicly announced his proposal to hold a referendum. This led to his demise.


Merkel mentor Hitler was actually more diplomatic, honest
Berlin's open interference is met with outrage in Athens. The Greek population has a "right to respect," the chairperson of the conservative Nea Dimokratia, Antonis Samaras, was quoted as saying. And the chairman of the opposition party Syriza, Alexis Tsipras, declared that Berlin is acting as if Greece "is a protectorate."[4]

Euro Dusk

Berlin is gruffly rebuffing every deviation from the severe austerity policy, ruining Greece, (german-foreign-policy.com reported [5]) - in spite of the fact that this will accelerate the collapse of the entire Euro zone. A few days ago, the economist and Nobel laureate Paul Krugman, was not the first to describe such a scenario. Soon, "most likely, next month," Greece will exit the Euro zone, according to Krugman. Immediately thereafter, a comprehensive capital flight can be expected to Germany - at least from Spain and Italy, out of fear of also these two countries' economic collapse. This would necessitate drastic measures - limitations of money transfer or new support measures for Spanish and Italian banks, and possibly both. In the long run, however, support particularly for the Spanish economy with stimulus programs cannot be avoided. This would mean a strategy change for combating the crisis that Berlin from the very beginning has been trying to avoid at all costs. "Germany has the choice," explains Krugman, accept the change of course or "the end of the Euro" is imminent. Concerning the time span of the "Euro dusk," Krugman says, "we are speaking in terms of months, not years."[6]

Protectorate


Moooooo... Merkel has tried everything to stay in power, going so far as to attempt to use her boobs to good effect

The sectors of the German elite, which refuse to consider this change of course proposed by Krugman and numerous other experts outside Germany,[7] are now publicly debating scenarios involving the use of force. In a newspaper interview early this month, the director of the prominent Hamburg Institute of International Economics, Thomas Straubhaar, called for establishing a protectorate in Greece - "regardless of the outcome of the elections." The country is a "failed state," he says, which is unable to raise itself "to a new start" under "its own steam."[8] Athens needs "help in establishing viable state structures." It, therefore, must be transformed into "a European protectorate." "The EU must do it," affirms Straubhaar. The EU "would have to help Greece modernize its institutions at every level, particularly with administrative staff, tax experts, and tax inspectors." However, refounding Greece would demand "intuition" to "overcome national pride, conceit, and the resistance of interest groups." This is referring to a sovereign democracy, a German ally in the EU and NATO.


WWII:  Germany arrives in Greece
Putsch

In the meantime, there is even discussion of a putsch in Athens. Greece threatens to sink into complete chaos, warned a long time companion of Germany's former Foreign Minister, Joseph Fischer, Daniel Cohn-Bendit, a European parliamentarian for the French Green Party. Cohn-Bendit explained that it is impossible to avoid extensive foreign interference. "If you leave the Greeks to muddle through alone, you are risking a military putsch."[9] German commentators are drawing comparisons to the situation in the later stages of Germany's Weimar Republic. "In the Greek situation, the worst case would be a reversion to a dictatorship," warned an influential commentator. "This scenario becomes more probable as instability grows." In reference to the links between a possible dictatorship and Berlin's austerity dictate, the commentator writes, "already today, it seems as though Merkel's austerity policy can, at best, be imposed on the streets of Athens by force of arms."[10]

Protection Forces

Last week, a leading German daily discussed the issue of dispatching troops to Greece. Should the country go bankrupt, it would then, as a "'failing state,' (...) be less in a position" to shore up its borders against migrants, writes the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. Just recently, the EU Commission announced that it finds itself forced to prolong the mission of its EU border troops at the Greek/Turkish borders.


Will Merkel, desperate to save herself, invade Greece?
If Athens "should no longer be able to pay its officials, or can pay only in Drachmas," the situation risks "chaotic."[11] The country could possibly "be rocked by rebellions." "Help for Greece would then no longer be on credit, but be transformed into a sort of humanitarian emergency aid," prophesied the journal in its front-page lead editorial. "Hopefully, an international protection force, such as is stationed in the teetering countries further to the north, will not become an option."[12]
