The Greeks, those who haven’t absconded and those who went to the polls, have voted to stay in the European Union and the Euro Currency.  This is a sane, economic and intelligently cooperative decision. After all, Greece is a nice place to live and it is arguably the source of western democracy, myths, science and civilisation. Europe is indebted to the Greeks.

The intelligent, cooperative citizens who have stayed and want Greece to return to full economic strength have a problem. Their defaulting, traitorous, sociopathic aristocrats have buggered off with all the money, without paying taxes, sabotaging the entire nation for decades to come.

It isn’t difficult to track both the thieves and the money – this is the computer age and all banking is computer logged – but how can the money be repatriated?  Every €5 million siphoned out of Greece costs 200 new jobs and wrecks the economic prospects of apprentices and students.

Thanks to the deluded 1980 Monetarist trio, Friedman, Thatcher and Reagan and hordes of overpaid, insatiable, financial tapeworms, addicted to obsessive gambling with other people’s money, we live in the era of uncontrolled free global markets. It is GOOD to gouge out money from and wreck your local community and not re-invest. It is good to spread fear and despondency about other countries, ruin their economies – and force them into borrowing their own money back at an unsustainable 7%. Only China, inside its Great Wall, has politely avoided this 30 years of economic insanity.
The Greeks’ stolen Euros can be legally repatriated. The new government can use the existing presumption of “guilty” of tax evasion for all funds siphoned out since 1980. Back-Duty laws will ensure the taxes, interest and penalties amount to the capital exported. In this good task their 600 million fellow Europeans owe the struggling Greeks support. The EU can rip the lids off the global tax-havens via bank-audit-trails (mostly on IBM machines). Now is a good time to start. This will repay all the Greek deficits. Guillotining is optional.
