IMF board member criticizes Fund’s Greece program


Brazil’s International Monetary Fund representative has criticized the tough reforms demanded of Greece, saying the Fund and its bailout partners appear to want to run the Greek economy themselves.

Paulo Nogueira Batista, who represents Brazil and 10 other countries at the global crisis lender, said in a May 30 statement to the board that Greece has already made substantial progress under harsh austerity conditions.

The statement, obtained by AFP after the board approved the release of new funds to Athens, said the IMF and its European partners should ease some of the conditions of their massive rescue program for the country.

«Fiscal adjustment has been very large and the return to a primary surplus in 2013 constituted an important milestone. It is hard to see how the country can do more on this front,» said Nogueira Batista.

He pointed out that Greece could only manage to ease its economic contraction last year by not meeting all the tough reforms the lenders demanded of it.

«This seems to indicate that the number of structural measures the Troika has been demanding from Greece is rather excessive.»

In the 81 pages of detailed policy demands of the newest stage of the IMF-European Commission-European Central Bank rescue program, he said Greece appears to be «a victim of German thoroughness».

Dear Miley,

I wasn’t going to write this letter, but today i’ve been dodging phone calls from various newspapers who wished me to remark upon your having said in Rolling Stone your Wrecking Ball video was designed to be similar to the one for Nothing Compares … So this is what I need to say … And it is said in the spirit of motherliness and with love.

I am extremely concerned for you that those around you have led you to believe, or encouraged you in your own belief, Συνέχεια

I am Greek and I wanna go home


Definition of hypocrisy: The British government bans Kelly Clarkson from taking Jane Austen’s ring out of the country which she paid £150,000 for at a UK auction, but has absolutely no regrets having its museums stuffed with «acquired» archaeological artefacts.

John Cleese: ‘Syria and Alert to threats in Europe’


21st Century Wire says… When this story was originally published there was speculation as to who the real author was, with most people saying that it was he of Monty Python fame. Based on the skilled prose, we’d have to agree with the mob on this one. A masterpiece nonetheless…

By John Cleese

The English are feeling the pinch in relation to recent events in Syria and have therefore raised their security level from “Miffed” to “Peeved.”

Soon, though, security levels may be raised yet again to “Irritated” or even “A Bit Cross.” The English have not been “A Bit Cross” since the Blitz in 1940 when tea supplies nearly ran out. Terrorists have been re-categorized from “Tiresome” to “A Bloody Nuisance.” The last time the British issued a “Bloody Nuisance” warning level was in 1588, when threatened by the Spanish Armada.

The Scots have raised their threat level from “Pissed Off” to “Let’s get the Bastards.” They don’t have any other levels. This is the reason they have been used on the front line of the British army for the last 300 years.

The French government announced yesterday that it has raised its terror alert level Συνέχεια
