Life without troika will be hard for Greeks

Hannes Swoboda, President of the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats in the European Parliament, said last week that the troika should leave Greece and let the country assume responsibility for its budget policy. The liberal weekly newspaper Proto Thema wonders how the Greeks would cope: "For five years they've made themselves comfortable and grown used to the 'evil' politicians who've supposedly destroyed the country. Now, however, the moment has come to look the bitter truth in the face. It wasn't aliens who elected the governments after 1974, but the Greeks themselves. And as with every decision taken by adults, they themselves are responsible. Or don't they feel like adults? If that's the case they still have the option of asking the troika to stay."
