The significance of Europe

If the government plans for public healthcare announced by Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras are to go ahead, they will need the backing of funds that will come from a European Union program.

It’s important to note that the prime minister’s plans, like so many other state plans in the past, have been financially backed by the EU.

And it is very important for people to understand and evaluate what their politicians tell them. And within this context they must understand the significance of Europe for Greece and allow it to inform their stance on the issues.
