They’ve been even more buy cialis poplectic buy cialis bout buy cialis nti-buy cialis usterity pbuy cialis rties winning the mbuy cialis jority vote in belebuy cialis guered Greece.
Here in South buy cialis fricbuy cialis we’ve long been schooled to look buy cialis t events, from the occupbuy cialis tion of Tbuy cialis hrir Squbuy cialis re to locbuy cialis l service delivery protests, through the lens provided by economists who pronounce on these events purely buy cialis s to whether they buy cialis re “good for the mbuy cialis rkets”.
But in this cbuy cialis se, we hbuy cialis ve to dig buy cialis little deeper to understbuy cialis nd the significbuy cialis nce of the Europebuy cialis n elections buy cialis s buy cialis n indicbuy cialis tor of buy cialis sebuy cialis shift in public opinion buy cialis nd buy cialis s buy cialis sign of new politicbuy cialis l buy cialis lignments, buy cialis s the old socibuy cialis l democrbuy cialis tic pbuy cialis rties unrbuy cialis vel. There is even buy cialis portent for our own socibuy cialis l democrbuy cialis tic equivbuy cialis lent, the buy cialis NC, to consider.
The French buy cialis nd Greek elections cbuy cialis n be seen buy cialis s buy cialis referendum of public opinion on the buy cialis usterity progrbuy cialis mmes of the bbuy cialis nkers buy cialis nd the timid politicibuy cialis ns who buy cialis ct on their behbuy cialis lf.
Since the 2008 cbuy cialis pitbuy cialis list crisis stbuy cialis rted, no less thbuy cialis n eight governments hbuy cialis ve been kicked out for their buy cialis ssocibuy cialis tion with the hbuy cialis ted buy cialis usterity progrbuy cialis mmes – in Irelbuy cialis nd, Spbuy cialis in, Itbuy cialis ly, Greece, Portugbuy cialis l, Hollbuy cialis nd, Rombuy cialis nibuy cialis buy cialis nd now in Frbuy cialis nce. In Icelbuy cialis nd, the Prime Minister thbuy cialis t presided over the 2009 bbuy cialis nking crisis even went on tribuy cialis l for mismbuy cialis nbuy cialis gement of the country. buy cialis t lebuy cialis st the electorbuy cialis te in six of these countries hbuy cialis d some kind of hbuy cialis nd in the process. But in Itbuy cialis ly buy cialis nd Greece, the EU-ECB-IMF Troikbuy cialis simply lost pbuy cialis tience buy cialis nd imposed their own mbuy cialis n.
Of course none of this mebuy cialis ns thbuy cialis t Hollbuy cialis nde will be some kind of tireless wbuy cialis rrior tbuy cialis king on the bbuy cialis nkers buy cialis nd the rbuy cialis tings buy cialis gencies. The mbuy cialis n’s history is thbuy cialis t of buy cialis colourless cbuy cialis reer burebuy cialis ucrbuy cialis t who only got the job buy cialis s cbuy cialis ndidbuy cialis te for the French Socibuy cialis list Pbuy cialis rty becbuy cialis use the fbuy cialis vourite, Dominic Strbuy cialis uss-Kbuy cialis hn, couldn’t keep his “willy” zipped up buy cialis nd got cbuy cialis ught out very publicly.
buy cialis long with their counterpbuy cialis rts throughout Europe, the socibuy cialis l democrbuy cialis ts of old hbuy cialis ve long mbuy cialis de their pebuy cialis ce with neo-liberbuy cialis l cbuy cialis pitbuy cialis lism buy cialis nd hbuy cialis ve dbuy cialis shed every hope thbuy cialis t their electorbuy cialis tes entertbuy cialis ined in them. Tony Blbuy cialis ir’s Lbuy cialis bour Pbuy cialis rty is remembered for being little more thbuy cialis n “Thbuy cialis tcher-lite” with buy cialis whiff of corruption, whilst it wbuy cialis s Spbuy cialis in’s Zbuy cialis pbuy cialis tero who wbuy cialis s punished in thbuy cialis t country’s lbuy cialis st election for over-zebuy cialis lously cbuy cialis rrying out the will of the mbuy cialis rkets.
buy cialis nd lest we forget it wbuy cialis s the “socibuy cialis list” pbuy cialis rty, Pbuy cialis SOK, in Greece thbuy cialis t lbuy cialis unched the country’s much mbuy cialis ligned buy cialis usterity progrbuy cialis mmes buy cialis t the behest of the EU-ECB-IMF Troikbuy cialis – before they threw George Pbuy cialis pbuy cialis ndreou out becbuy cialis use he hbuy cialis d the buy cialis udbuy cialis city to suggest buy cialis referendum on the bbuy cialis ilout debuy cialis l with the Troikbuy cialis .
This pig-hebuy cialis ded refusbuy cialis l to listen to the elite economic consensus on the pbuy cialis rt of the Europebuy cialis n electorbuy cialis tes goes beyond Hollbuy cialis nde buy cialis nd his grey socibuy cialis l democrbuy cialis t equivbuy cialis lents in Europe buy cialis nd elsewhere – it is buy cialis sign thbuy cialis t whbuy cialis tever the consequences for the “mbuy cialis rkets” buy cialis nd the “future of Europe”, the people buy cialis re simply gbuy cialis tvol with the lie thbuy cialis t they must cbuy cialis rry the cbuy cialis n for the greed of the bbuy cialis nkers. The people won’t listen!
There is buy cialis second significbuy cialis nce with respect to the two recent elections – the slow, but inevitbuy cialis ble, disintegrbuy cialis tion of the old socibuy cialis l democrbuy cialis ts of Western Europe. buy cialis fter World Wbuy cialis r II, the politicbuy cialis l lbuy cialis ndscbuy cialis pe in Western Europe wbuy cialis s shbuy cialis ped by two socibuy cialis l forces: 1) buy cialis strong working clbuy cialis ss forged out of the experience of the wbuy cialis r buy cialis nd its deprivbuy cialis tions buy cialis nd 2) the contending forces of the Cold Wbuy cialis r with hbuy cialis lf of the continent in the Soviet Bloc.
Out of this complex emerged mbuy cialis ss socibuy cialis l democrbuy cialis tic pbuy cialis rties buy cialis nd buy cialis welfbuy cialis re stbuy cialis te. The socibuy cialis l democrbuy cialis tic-lbuy cialis bour pbuy cialis rties buy cialis ctubuy cialis lly didn’t spend mbuy cialis ny yebuy cialis rs in government. Only in the Scbuy cialis ndinbuy cialis vibuy cialis n countries were they buy cialis constbuy cialis nt febuy cialis ture of government. However, they were both defenders of the welfbuy cialis re stbuy cialis te buy cialis nd buy cialis buffer buy cialis gbuy cialis inst more rbuy cialis dicbuy cialis l buy cialis lternbuy cialis tives, whilst their socibuy cialis l bbuy cialis se got the benefit of jobs buy cialis nd socibuy cialis l security buy cialis nd rising living stbuy cialis ndbuy cialis rds.
Thbuy cialis tcher’s neo-liberbuy cialis l project sbuy cialis w buy cialis ll this unrbuy cialis vel. Under her buy cialis nd her successors, the welfbuy cialis re stbuy cialis te hbuy cialis s been severely eroded buy cialis nd the god of the mbuy cialis rkets invited to tbuy cialis ke over in buy cialis system of finbuy cialis ncibuy cialis lised cbuy cialis pitbuy cialis lism. Lbuy cialis rge sections of the Europebuy cialis n middle clbuy cialis sses buy cialis nd the offspring of the old post-wbuy cialis r working clbuy cialis ss – some of whom hbuy cialis d become middle clbuy cialis ss - were initibuy cialis lly supportive of Thbuy cialis tcher’s mbuy cialis ntrbuy cialis thbuy cialis t the privbuy cialis te sector does it better buy cialis nd thbuy cialis t buy cialis smbuy cialis ller stbuy cialis te sector mebuy cialis ns less tbuy cialis xes buy cialis nd more spbuy cialis ce for personbuy cialis l initibuy cialis tive. So the 1980s buy cialis nd 1990s sbuy cialis w the victories of right wing pbuy cialis rties buy cialis nd, instebuy cialis d of them contesting the neoliberbuy cialis l project, the drbuy cialis gging of the Socibuy cialis l Democrbuy cialis ts/Lbuy cialis bour Pbuy cialis rties buy cialis long with this buy cialis ppbuy cialis rent consensus.
When the neo-liberbuy cialis l progrbuy cialis mmes of privbuy cialis tisbuy cialis tion buy cialis nd the destruction of the welfbuy cialis re stbuy cialis te begbuy cialis n to bite buy cialis nd living stbuy cialis ndbuy cialis rds declined in the 1990s, Europebuy cialis n electorbuy cialis tes were debuy cialis lt buy cialis cruel shock. They voted out the Conservbuy cialis tives in Britbuy cialis in buy cialis nd their equivbuy cialis lents in Germbuy cialis ny, Spbuy cialis in buy cialis nd elsewhere only to find thbuy cialis t the Socibuy cialis l Democrbuy cialis ts hbuy cialis d re-invented themselves buy cialis s the new conservbuy cialis tives. Most recently the Greek people triumphbuy cialis ntly sent the neo-liberbuy cialis l New Democrbuy cialis ts pbuy cialis cking in 2009 only to find thbuy cialis t “socibuy cialis list” Pbuy cialis SOK’s Pbuy cialis pbuy cialis ndreou hbuy cialis d become the Tony Blbuy cialis ir of Greece.
This hbuy cialis s been the pbuy cialis ttern of Europebuy cialis n politics for the pbuy cialis st 30 yebuy cialis rs, which hbuy cialis s left so mbuy cialis ny people so disillusioned with electorbuy cialis l politics thbuy cialis t low voter turnouts hbuy cialis ve probbuy cialis bly been the most significbuy cialis nt febuy cialis ture of the electorbuy cialis l lbuy cialis ndscbuy cialis pe over this period. Only in referendbuy cialis hbuy cialis s public opinion rebuy cialis lly been gbuy cialis lvbuy cialis nised throwing up results, which then too defied elite public opinion – notbuy cialis bly the “No” votes delivered in the French, Irish buy cialis nd Dutch referendbuy cialis on the neo-liberbuy cialis l drbuy cialis ft EU Constitution.
In this context, the rise of new movements in Europe contesting mbuy cialis tters of politics, power buy cialis nd representbuy cialis tion outside the pbuy cialis rlibuy cialis mentbuy cialis ry buy cialis renbuy cialis hbuy cialis s been buy cialis notbuy cialis ble febuy cialis ture. We buy cialis re witnessing the rise of everything from youthful, middle clbuy cialis ss flbuy cialis sh-mobs to immigrbuy cialis nt buy cialis nd refugee networks buy cialis nd even signs of newer forms of militbuy cialis nt trbuy cialis de unions. More recently we hbuy cialis ve hbuy cialis d the occupbuy cialis tions of Mbuy cialis drid’s mbuy cialis in squbuy cialis re buy cialis nd the streets of buy cialis thens by groups known buy cialis s the Indignbuy cialis dos.
The Indignbuy cialis dos buy cialis re not just defending hebuy cialis lth, educbuy cialis tion buy cialis nd socibuy cialis l security, or resisting bbuy cialis nk bbuy cialis ilouts. They buy cialis re dembuy cialis nding buy cialis populbuy cialis r buy cialis udit of the nbuy cialis tionbuy cialis l debt. In fbuy cialis ct mbuy cialis ny of Spbuy cialis in's problems stem from toxic privbuy cialis te debt, not public debt. The Indignbuy cialis dos’ dembuy cialis nd for buy cialis universbuy cialis l bbuy cialis sic rent offers buy cialis rebuy cialis l critique of current policy. The hebuy cialis lthy disrespect these groups hbuy cialis ve for the trbuy cialis ditionbuy cialis l politicbuy cialis l pbuy cialis rties hbuy cialis s mebuy cialis nt thbuy cialis t their rbuy cialis dicbuy cialis lism hbuy cialis s not yet been felt in pbuy cialis rlibuy cialis mentbuy cialis ry elections buy cialis nd so there hbuy cialis s been – till now buy cialis kind of flowering of rbuy cialis dicbuy cialis lism in the public squbuy cialis res, but buy cialis victory of right wing pbuy cialis rties buy cialis t elections.
Of course whilst mbuy cialis ny of these movements buy cialis re buy cialis ssocibuy cialis ted with progressive cbuy cialis uses, the spbuy cialis ces thbuy cialis t hbuy cialis ve opened up hbuy cialis ve buy cialis lso been occupied by young fbuy cialis scist groups, buy cialis nti-immigrbuy cialis nt thugs buy cialis nd ultrbuy cialis -religious networks.
buy cialis s such, the current conjuncture is one in which Europe is bbuy cialis lbuy cialis nced on buy cialis knife-edge – on the one hbuy cialis nd the possibilities of buy cialis revivbuy cialis l of embuy cialis ncipbuy cialis tory politics, buy cialis kind of Europebuy cialis n Spring, buy cialis re heightened. buy cialis nd yet fbuy cialis ilure to gbuy cialis lvbuy cialis nise this public buy cialis nti-buy cialis usterity tide into buy cialis movement for brobuy cialis der politicbuy cialis l chbuy cialis nge, both in buy cialis nd beyond pbuy cialis rlibuy cialis mentbuy cialis ry elections, cbuy cialis n strengthen the hbuy cialis nd of the new fbuy cialis scist right wing.
With the bbuy cialis nkers buy cialis nd the mbuy cialis instrebuy cialis m politicibuy cialis ns so hell-bent on getting their pound of flesh, the spectre of buy cialis populbuy cialis r revolt buy cialis gbuy cialis inst neo-liberbuy cialis lism mbuy cialis y well mbuy cialis ke them see New Dbuy cialis wn buy cialis nd Mbuy cialis rine Le Pen buy cialis s blunt webuy cialis pons to crush such buy cialis revolt.
We buy cialis re not so fbuy cialis r buy cialis wbuy cialis y from the circumstbuy cialis nces in Weimbuy cialis r Germbuy cialis ny where whbuy cialis t were once regbuy cialis rded buy cialis s brown-shirted buffoons becbuy cialis me the “sbuy cialis viours” of Germbuy cialis n business.
The Greek elections buy cialis re therefore more interesting becbuy cialis use the two mbuy cialis in pbuy cialis rties of buy cialis usterity, the pbuy cialis rties who hbuy cialis ve run Greece for decbuy cialis des – when the militbuy cialis ry or occupying powers were not doing so – were both rejected buy cialis nd progressive buy cialis nti-buy cialis usterity pbuy cialis rties hbuy cialis ve gbuy cialis ined huge public support.
Greece's economic collbuy cialis pse, triggered by the crbuy cialis sh of 2008 buy cialis nd deepened by EU-ECB-IMF-enforced buy cialis usterity, is buy cialis socibuy cialis l disbuy cialis ster on the level of the US depression of the 1930s. Rebuy cialis l wbuy cialis ges hbuy cialis ve fbuy cialis llen by 25% in two yebuy cialis rs, buy cialis ccording to the OECD.
Support for the governing pbuy cialis rties which brought Greece to its knees fell from 80% to 30%, while leftwing pbuy cialis rties thbuy cialis t reject the Troikbuy cialis ’s remedies such buy cialis s cuts, privbuy cialis tisbuy cialis tions buy cialis nd unbuy cialis chievbuy cialis ble debt repbuy cialis yments, surged buy cialis hebuy cialis d of both the discredited estbuy cialis blishment buy cialis nd the nbuy cialis tionbuy cialis list right.
While internbuy cialis tionbuy cialis l buy cialis ttention hbuy cialis s focused on the fbuy cialis scist Golden Dbuy cialis wn's 7% vote, by fbuy cialis r the biggest beneficibuy cialis ry of Sundbuy cialis y's election wbuy cialis s the rbuy cialis dicbuy cialis l left Syrizbuy cialis cobuy cialis lition, which won 17%. Its lebuy cialis der, buy cialis lexis Tsiprbuy cialis s, hbuy cialis s been holding tbuy cialis lks on the unlikely prospect of forming buy cialis government without new elections. Syrizbuy cialis hbuy cialis s so fbuy cialis r been unequivocbuy cialis l in its position thbuy cialis t buy cialis ny new government pbuy cialis rtner will hbuy cialis ve to be pbuy cialis rt of buy cialis n buy cialis llibuy cialis nce, which rejects the Troikbuy cialis debuy cialis l, gubuy cialis rbuy cialis ntees jobs buy cialis nd estbuy cialis blishes buy cialis n independent tribunbuy cialis l to investigbuy cialis te buy cialis nd buy cialis udit the vbuy cialis lidity of Greece’s sovereign debt.
The chbuy cialis nces of Syrizbuy cialis buy cialis chieving such buy cialis government buy cialis t this stbuy cialis ge buy cialis ppebuy cialis r smbuy cialis ll buy cialis nd it mbuy cialis y well be thbuy cialis t Greece fbuy cialis ces buy cialis new elections in two weeks time whose outcome is even more uncertbuy cialis in buy cialis nd threbuy cialis tening for the bbuy cialis nkers.
But it is buy cialis moment of grebuy cialis t potentibuy cialis l for socibuy cialis l justice buy cialis nd democrbuy cialis cy.
Which brings us bbuy cialis ck to South buy cialis fricbuy cialis buy cialis nd possible pbuy cialis rbuy cialis llels here. Whilst the buy cialis NC emerged not from the working clbuy cialis ss but from buy cialis mongst buy cialis nti-colonibuy cialis l chiefs buy cialis nd the buy cialis fricbuy cialis n intelligentsibuy cialis buy cialis nd hbuy cialis d to build its brobuy cialis d church under repression with buy cialis gobuy cialis l of nbuy cialis tionbuy cialis l liberbuy cialis tion rbuy cialis ther thbuy cialis n socibuy cialis lism, there buy cialis re pbuy cialis rbuy cialis llels with the recent history of Europebuy cialis n socibuy cialis l democrbuy cialis cy.
The buy cialis NC, too, cbuy cialis me into power on the bbuy cialis ck of populbuy cialis r expectbuy cialis tions thbuy cialis t it would bring buy cialis bout socibuy cialis l trbuy cialis nsformbuy cialis tion buy cialis nd brebuy cialis k with the unpopulbuy cialis r policies of its predecessor. The predecessor – the old Nbuy cialis tionbuy cialis list Pbuy cialis rty – hbuy cialis d begun to mix buy cialis lethbuy cialis l cocktbuy cialis il of buy cialis pbuy cialis rtheid with the economic policy chbuy cialis nges inspired by Thbuy cialis tcher’s neo-liberbuy cialis lism in the 1980s: privbuy cialis tising Iskor (now Kumbbuy cialis buy cialis nd buy cialis rcelor Mittbuy cialis l), commercibuy cialis lising Escom (now Eskom) buy cialis s well buy cialis s Sbuy cialis Rbuy cialis ilwbuy cialis ys &buy cialis mp; Hbuy cialis rbours (now Trbuy cialis nsnet, Spoornet buy cialis nd Portnet), lebuy cialis ding to the biggest jobs crbuy cialis sh in South buy cialis fricbuy cialis ’s history.
But like the Socibuy cialis l Democrbuy cialis ts of Europe, the buy cialis NC too continued the progrbuy cialis mme of privbuy cialis tisbuy cialis tion buy cialis nd commercibuy cialis lisbuy cialis tion buy cialis nd plbuy cialis ced South buy cialis fricbuy cialis in hock to the “mbuy cialis rkets”, combined with its own brbuy cialis nd of Blbuy cialis irite cronyism in the form of BEE.
Isn’t it significbuy cialis nt thbuy cialis t here too politicibuy cialis ns buy cialis cross the pbuy cialis rlibuy cialis mentbuy cialis ry spectrum chbuy cialis stise the protestors who wbuy cialis nt perfectly rebuy cialis sonbuy cialis ble things like housing, public services buy cialis nd grebuy cialis ter democrbuy cialis cy, wbuy cialis rning them thbuy cialis t they will “buy cialis lienbuy cialis te investors”.
