A heavy price to pay

Like its predecessors, the government has made the same mistake of embracing businessmen who are not known for their good intentions. 

The only difference is that the current government has been far clumsier and more overt in its dealings with what many would call shady businessmen. 

Pushed on by its desire to secure the backing of a slice of the media world, it has allowed dubious individuals to buy up stakes in TV stations and newspapers. 

However, these strong embraces can also very easily lead to a situation in which the government finds itself beholden to vested interests. 

This will make the effort to clean up the latest mess in the Greek soccer league so much more complicated.
