The Troika are now trashing Portugal
The Seattle Times, has a report from yesterday from Portugal, linked here. The following is how the article begins:
The unemployment rate is the highest since authorities began compiling comprehensive national registers in 1950
That is quite frankly absolutely astounding for any of us who knew Portugal during or immediately after the overthrow of its last dictator in the mid-nineteen seventies, read here. Who could have guessed that the EU would bring that country so low, does President Barroso ever summon up the courage to nowadays return to the homeland he has helped to wreck?
