While addressing his SYRIZA party’s conference last week, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras admitted that the sole option for Greece was for the country to remain a eurozone member.
It took him a long time to come out and say so, but he finally did.
What he failed to mention, however, was all the dead ends he is currently facing both on the local as well as on the international front.
While he tries to overcome these obstacles on a communication level by using his familiar aggressive rhetoric against the country’s foreign lenders as well as his political rivals, it is obvious that he has created an environment of instability in the country, its economy and, ultimately, his coalition government.
The Greek premier seems to believe that he will succeed in slipping away by untying the Gordian knot he has created with regard to the country’s debt and the bailout’s review.
This, however, is bound to prove a very difficult task.
