Athens Riotcams Are Back - Live Webcasts

Tyler Durden's picture





 

While we await the Greek parliament vote on yet further Troika-mandated austerity, which the government has promised to be the last such round of cuts, or at least the last one before Germany demands even more austerity for a country which is now, supposedly "too big" in Merkel's words, here is how the general population is preparing for the vote's outcome, which, if it passes, will be by a razor thin margin. Also, as a friendly reminder the May 6, 2010 flash crash occurred just as the video stream of the first Greek riot peaked...

The Greeks (Who else were the masters of drama?) go through the Kabuki Theater (OK, so the Japanese do it well, too.) as to whether they're going to do anything at all to "qualify" for the next installment payout.
Gotta love it.
Why bother?
If they pass it, the ECB/EU/whoever else including the US, indirectly will advance funds and the banks get paid.  While the Greeks will do nothing different that they'd done before the vote. 
On the other hand if they don't pass the whatever empty promise they're voting on and the ECB/EU/whoever else doesn't advance the funds, the banks don't get paid and then the ECB/EU/whoever else has to dump the money directly into the banks .... while having cratered the (whatever is left of the soft and squishy) illusion that all's well that doesn't die a slow painful death in front of one's eyes.  And the Greeks don't do anything other than what they've been doing already.

We're not quite ready for actual "masters" yet. There needs to be some real pain in the streets -- some real fear of personal loss and death --  before people will be frightened enough to embrace with open relief what comes next. As for who it will be steps forward, hard to say but the playbook hasn't many moves in it. They will likely offer the illusions of public safety and financial security at the cost of all our remaining freedoms. And really, after that, the party will just be over.

Of coarse this will not get a mention on any mainstream european news channel. But slowly people are waking up and trying to get their capital and themselves to `relative safety`. Post Hollande `tax initiatives` - things are coming unglued in France too. Big exodus of well off / mobile people following their capital to London and Zurich. 6 months ago there were 400k french passport holders domiciled in London - I would bet it has risen at least 25% since then. Rents in London SW3, W8 & SW10 through the roof. Then we have the Brits who felt safe from UK taxation in Spain now scrambling to get domicile status in Switzerland to keep the Spanish tax collectors at bay who have woken up to the low hanging fruit that the German and UK ex pat communities represent. I think the capital flight that we saw from Greece and are seeing from Spain is going to spread fairly fast now that it is happening in france - if it reaches Germany then it will be game over for Mario D.

The few dozen French renters I know in SW3 & 7 (where they like to congregate) are all on notice of rent rises of @15%. They tell me that they have to pay up / leave the area or move to a broom cupboard because more of their countrymen are arriving and seeking digs by the week. Perhaps its a very `local` thing in that area.

Wanna read a joke? (Several, actually):

Approval of the cuts and tax rises worth 13.5bn euros ($17 billion) over two years was a big step for Greek efforts to secure the next instalment [sic] of its international rescue funds, and stave off imminent bankruptcy.

Prime Minister Antonis Samaras has said the country runs out of euros on November 16 without the funds.

"Today we took a big and decisive step towards growth," he said after the crucial vote.

The tough measures to be implemented by 2016, include raising the retirement age to 67, slashing benefits and cutting the minimum wage.
