The Labour tradition and the politics of paradox

www.biri.fi/Labour-tradition-paradox.html    ("Gaffelbitar" - "fork-bites" assorted by Paul Biri)

By Maurice Glasman, Jonathan Rutherford, Marc Stears, Stuart White (eds)
To ask some fundamental questions about the condition of the U.K. and the predicament of Labour following its defeat in the May 2010,
four seminars were organised between October 2010 and April 2011.
Ed Miliband: ".. both the statists and the pro-market voices underplayed the importance of the aspects of our lives and our communities
that must be protected from the destructive effects of both markets and the unresponsive state. "
Maurice Glasman: "Labour's response to globalisation after 1992 was a move [?] from the Common Good to progressivism, from organisation to mobilisation,
from democracy to rights, from self-management to scientific management. "

The EU's 'techno party' is hollowing out democracy

BRUSSELS - Not everybody's into techno music. Some folks are a little bit country; others a little bit rock and roll.
But under what one Brussels wag recently called the EU's 'techno-party' strategy - replacing elected representatives with technocrats and an end to consideration of fiscal policies by parliaments in favour of fiat by civil-servant 'experts' - nobody has any choice any more about what kind of music they want to listen to.
Economic policies will be decided for them, by the experts, by, if you will, those bangin' bureaucrat and banker DJs in Brussels and Frankfurt.

EU leaders' strategies collide with voters in Greece and France

www.guardian.co.uk...2012/may/07/eurozone-crisis..
EU leaders' strategies collide with the wishes of voters in Greece and France.
The big winner in Greek elections, Syriza, a coalition of leftist radicals that came second, squarely blamed Merkel for the mess.
"European leaders and especially Merkel have to understand that austerity policies have suffered defeat," said its young leader, Alexis Tsipras.

Disgusting "achievement": A Greek Minister is slandering sick women


So Many Bribes, a Greek Official Can?t Recall Them All

The testimony by a deputy in the Defense Ministry, if accurate, illustrates how arms makers from Germany,
France, Sweden and Russia passed out payoffs to sell Greece weaponry that it could ill afford.
- Never before has an official opened such a wide window on the eye-popping system of payoffs at work inside a Greek government ministry

A Power Vacuum Is Choking the Euro Zone

"As problems mount in the euro zone, it?s increasingly evident that
we?ve been witnessing an institutional failure of monumental proportions.
Simply keeping Greece in the euro zone won?t help much, even if it?s possible."
