Après le plombier polonais, le flic grec
Zero Hedge, le 8 avril 2012 :
"Now that the time has come to expect Greek March economic data, which will show an acceleration in the total financial collapse of a society which is merely used as an intermediary to bail out insolvent European banks, something that virtually everyone takes for granted, together with a third bailout package sometime in the late summer, we can focus on the more entertaining developments out of the country that has become a symbol of all that is broken in Europe. Such as this story from Greek Protothema that one can now hire a cop for as little as €30/hour. €20 more gives one the option of chosing between the Athenian version of Erik Estrada, together with bike and ambiguous sexual tendencies, or a K-9 option. Finally, for those who are in need of urgent transport from point A to point B in total security, the Greek police choppers can be had for as little as €1500 an hour. In other words, one can own a 24/7 full-time militia of 20 policemen for as little as €14,400 a month. Naturally, the Greek PD has stooped so low because it simply has no money, and in its attempt to protect and serve, it has to do a little paid moonlighting on the side. As to what happens when all the wealthy robber barrons and tax evaders in Greek society end up owning all the officers in circulation, leaving the rest of the country defenseless, well, we are confident the local underworld elements will be more than happy to find out just what the consequences of that particular outcome will be. But at least Greece is still in the euro. And that's all that matters."
