Photos From A "Fixed" Greece

Greece may have a new government that is the same as the old government, but what is important is that it is "fixed".

From the Daily Mail: "Starving Greeks queue for food in their thousands as debt-wracked country finally forms a coalition government":

Starving Greeks queued around the block for free food handouts yesterday as the country's politicians managed to end a crippling stalemate to form a coalition government.

 

Young children as well as the elderly waited in line in Athens to collect the parcels of fruit and vegetables donated by farmers from Crete to help ease the devastating austerity faced by many Greeks.
