EU leaders sell their citizens

According to media reports, the Russian energy giant Gazprom has offered to finance the restructuring of the Cypriot banking sector in exchange for gas drilling rights on Cyprus. The company itself has denied the reports. The liberal-conservative daily Diário de Notícias says it wouldn't be surprised if the EU accepted such a deal: "We have now reached the point where a company offers to buy an EU state. … This type of state terrorism could be in the running for the most idiotic political measure ever. However these people [the EU leaders] are in a position to rob us. They are selling us as if we were commodities. We can't rely on these people; not even our savings in the bank are safe any more. … But at least there is one positive aspect to this inhuman measure: it confronts us with the brutal reality of what these people are capable of. … And with the fact that we are in danger of losing our democratic achievements and being put under the administration of a single gigantic corporation."
