I listened to the Syriza spokesman on the Today programme this morning . He pointed out that both sides were posturing over the debt negotiations and that this was normal. He also pointed out that people were going hungry and many were homeless. Other commentators have pointed out that many Greeks are not receiving medical care. He promised to find shelter for the homeless. He also talked about ending 'tax-immunity'. Since the Colonels fell from power in in 1974 Greece has been ruled alternately and latterly, by a duopoly,  by a pair of clientilistic political parties , subsidised by the oligarchs. That's why Greece is in a mess. Surely the first duty of a democratic government is to ensure that people are fed, housed and receive medical treatment. He wants debt repayments linked to Greek economic growth.  Greece now produces about three quarters of what it produced before 2009, so that sounds sensible. For me the Syriza spokesman hit the right note.
