Now there’s a nice word.
Essentially it just means “to bleed dry” or “to lose blood beyond the point of sustaining life”.
I think it is rather an appropriate word to describe what the EU is doing to Greece. They are bleeding Greece dry to save their precious Euro and their precious United States of Europe. They don’t give a damn who suffers in the process so long as they can continue to implement their master plan.
They did the same to us in Ireland. They weren’t quite so heavy handed but the effect is the same. They have sucked so much cash out of the economy that we can forget about any ideas of growth. No cash = no purchasing = no demand = no growth. No growth of course means no revenue, leaving the country dependent on the EU. A very smart fucking equation if you are one of the big central European countries and want a steady supply of dirt cheap produce and labour from the peripheral countries.
Ireland is fucked and so is Greece. Neither can afford the repayments and it’s only a matter before we default.
So who is next?
Jackboots in Lisbon?
Let’s just say I would hold off on emigrating to Portugal for the moment.
