Greek rebellion to spread and time for change

The good people of Greece have taken to the streets of major cities demonstrating with vigour. They are angry because they don't want to see 9 year old school children depend on hand outs and eating at soup kitchens whilst fat bankers sit on their luxury houses watching and laughing. They are absolutely right!

I was privileged enough to be present at two of the 9 major demonstrations in Athens between November 2011 and May 2012 and have seen ordinary people not Trots, as the papers are reporting, show their anger. They did not go around leafleting or signing online petitions, that time has passed and that's not the Greek way anyway.

I am glad that people in other countries in Europe are now prepared to do the same with Spain to follow shortly. The tide is turning and the French people have voted out the man who wants austerity and the good people of Germany have also rejected the Merkel approach to managing the economy by throwing out the austerity politicians at a major regional election. Time for change!
