Open Letter to Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras

Despite being under no illusion, it is very disappointing to read that Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras visiting Lesbos said “It is imperative that we reach an agreement with Turkey to stop the flows by targeting the smugglers“.

In January this year, when Alexis Tsipras gave his speech following the magnificent Syriza election victory, he said: ‘Greece is turning the page.

Ireland’s Shame, Syriza’s climbdown

To its great shame the Irish Government, and Finance Minister Michael Noonan in particular, have played a disgraceful role in lining up with the IMF and the EU institutions to inflict further suffering on the Greek people.
