Uncommon Sense

Introducing Alogoskoufis' New Sidekick...Antonis Bezas

It's no secret that Greece's economy is the worst it's been in years. To exacerbate the situation, Deputy Finance Minister, Adam Regouzas has resigned over his admitted involvement in 'state-sponsored advertising' scheme and of course, his notorious remarks to customs officials. Giorgos Alogoskoufis was then left with the task to find someone to replace him. Common sense would dictate that his deputy's replacement would be a more qualified individual with both an economics background and relevant political experience. Unfortunately, common sense was not a prerequisite for the job of Finance Minister. He chose an obscure MP, Antonis Bezas, with absolutely no experience in economics and relatively little experience as a politician.

I suppose if it was good enough for George Bush, Sr. and Dan Quayle; Laurel & Hardy; Cheech and Chong...it's good enough for Alogoskoufis & Bezas.

Ahhh, I see a global conspiracy at work here!

And hey, don't go mentioning Cheech & Chong in the same breath as those others! Sacrilege!

LOL! My apologies to Cheech & Chong.
