Re: <nettime> Yanis Varoufakis: As it happend (on June 27th, 2015 in Bruxelles)


   Well yes, but only half of it is surprising. The other half is a smoke
   screen intended to cover up the fact that his unfortunately well known
   preference for anal sex extends not only to young women but also to
   countries. As we know, DSK was personally responsible for the 2010 IMF
   loans to Greece for which the IMF had to rewrite its rulebook (they
   were serving `unsustainable debt') so that French and German banks
   (holding 30 & 27 Mio respectively) didn't have to write off this money.
   Had DSK done the right thing (debt restructuration) he would have been
   more or less directly responsible for some substantial commotion in the
   French banking sector - not a great PR stunt for someone who wanted to
   become president. So he did the wrong thing, which in this case was
   literally fucking Greece up its ass.

   In other words, the letter is slightly less heroic/surprising than it
   might seem...

   Best,

   Seb

   the best political 'Return of the Mommy' performance of the period.
