Terrible dilemma

The government and the country’s lenders are leading Greece into a situation whereby thousands of businessmen and taxpayers will have to ask themselves the following question: “should I accept economic defeat or should I resort to tax dodging and social security contribution evasion.”

No one who respects the law and loves this country wants to be faced with such a terrible dilemma but the simple fact is that the new measures that have been submitted to Parliament allow little room for behaving in a way that is legally and morally correct.

This is the brutal reality and thousands who have sat down and done their math know that the numbers simply don’t add up.
