Depois da vitória expressiva do Não (OXI) no referendo do Domingo passado, Alexis Tsipras submete aos credores uma proposta ainda mais austera do que a proposta que foi sujeita a referendo.
A proposta do agora neoliberal Alexis Tsipras, entre aumentos de impostos e cortes na despesa, representa uma austeridade no valor de 13 mil milhões de euros atravessando as linhas vermelhas “intocáveis” das pensões e do IVA. Ainda sobre as pensões, vale a pena destacar uma das frases da proposta submetida pelos gregos: “The Authorities recognise that the pension system is unsustainable and needs fundamental reforms.”
Citando Connor Campbell do Spreadex.com:
“In a strange turn of events considering the resounding ‘no’ cried out by the Greek people to austerity, Tsipras submitted a proposal to creditors on Thursday that contains around €13 billion in cuts and tax rises, €4 billion more than the plan the public rejected.
The concessions this reflects, especially on primary budget surpluses, VAT and pensions (i.e. all the ‘red lines’), and the swelling chances of a deal actually being made, is in no doubt the reason behind the robust early gains of the DAX and CAC.
However there is still more work for Tsipras to do, and in many ways the most difficult task lies ahead; the Greek PM now has to try and convince his government this Friday to back the €13 billion plan, one that seemingly flies in the face of the anti-austerity rhetoric that has been Syriza’s bread and butter since before the party was elected.”
