ΤΑ GOLDEN BOYS ΣΤΗΝ ΕΛΛΑΔΑ ΤΩΝ ΣΥΣΣΙΤΙΩΝ ΚΑΙ ΤΩΝ ΑΝΘΡΩΠΩΝ ΠΟΥ ΤΡΩΝΕ ΑΠΟ ΤΑ ΣΚΟΥΠΙΔΙΑ ...

...και η προστασία των παχυλών εισοδημάτων τους  από την τρόικα, σύμφωνα με τον Γ. Βαρουφάκη.
     Πρόσφατα , στο αυστραλιανό περιοδικό MONTHLY, δημοσιεύτηκε άρθρο του ομογενούς συγγραφέα Χρήστου Τσιόλκα (ολόκληρο  ΕΔΩ και αναδημοσιευμένο ΕΔΩ) , στο οποίο παρατίθενται ,εντός εισαγωγικών,  περικοπές συνομιλίας, που είχε  ο αρθρογράφος  με τον   Γ. Βαρουφάκη. Το άρθρο αυτό περιέχει μία πολύ ενδιαφέρουσα αναφορά του Γ. Βαρουφάκη , σύμφωνα με την οποία αυτός, ως υπουργός, έχοντας την αρμοδιότητα από τον νόμο, επιχείρησε δραστική μείωση των υψηλότατων αποδοχών στελεχών του ΤΧΣ , για την οποία υπήρξε άμεση παρέμβαση της Τρόικας, η οποία αντέδρασε, κρίνοντας την απόφαση του ...αναιτιολόγητη!!!
     Η περικοπή αυτή έχει ως εξής: ...

“Our state apparatus had been contaminated by the Troika, very, very badly. Let me give you an example. There is something called the Hellenic Financial Stability Facility, which is an offshoot of the European Financial Stability Facility [EFSF]. This is a fund that contained initially €50 billion – by the time I took over it was €11 billion – for the purpose of recapitalising the Greek banks. This is money that the taxpayers of Greece have borrowed for the purpose of bolstering the banks. I didn’t get to choose its CEO and I didn’t get to have any impact on the way it ran its affairs vis-à-vis the Greek banks. The Greek people who had elected me had no control on how the money they had borrowed was going to be used.
“I discovered at some point that the law that constituted the EFSF allowed me one power, and that was to determine the salary of these people. I realised that the salaries of these functionaries were monstrous by Greek standards. In a country with so much hunger and where the minimum wage has fallen to €520 a month, these people were making something like €18,000 a month.
“So I decided, since I had the power, I would exercise that power. I used a really simple rule. Pensions and salaries have fallen by an average of 40% since the beginning of the crisis. I issued a ministerial decree by which I reduced the salaries of these functionaries by 40%. Still a huge salary, still a huge salary. You know what happened? I got a letter from the Troika, saying that my decision has been overruled as it was insufficiently explained. So in a country in which the Troika is insisting that people on a €300-a-month pension now live on €100, they were refusing my cost-cutting exercise, my ability as a minister of finance to curtail the salaries of these people.”
         Και για την ιστορία,  το ποιοί είναι οι επικεφαλής του ΤΧΣ θα το βρείτε  ΕΔΩ.
     Αν τα όσα λέει ο Γ. Βαρουφάκης είναι ακριβή, όπως προφανώς είναι , αν μη τι άλλο θα πρέπει να προκαλέσουν τον προβληματισμό των πολιτών.
