There's a storm coming


A sombre picture for a sombre time. Once again Greece awaits what is in store for it in terms of spending cuts and job losses. In the media rumours abound of how hundreds of thousands of jobs are at risk and the possible imposition of yet more taxes on basics such as public transport and heating oil. All the while the political leadership shows how little the fate of the country depends on decisions taken by Greece's government and parliament. In response protests by ordinary Greeks are slowly gathering steam as people are driven by anger and desperation over the future to express their anger over how they are being treated.

This is such a saddening event to hear. Like any other countries a lot is affected by recession which is so bad.
