Former vice-chairman of the government and a veteran politician, Theodoros Pangalos is known for not really being careful of what he says. As Minister of Foreign Affairs in the 1990s he called Germany “a giant with the brain of an infant” causing diplomatic mayhem. During the economic crisis he has become more than famous (and hated) by his phrase “we ate them together” which became the single most descriptive motto of the government’s campaign to impose a collective guilt to the Greek society.
When invited to a SKAI TV talk show, Pangalos started the usual anti-syriza terrorizing crescendo which climaxed with this quote:
The Greek people are discovering the arbitrariness of [Mr. Tsipras’] reasonings but also the arbitrariness of his behavior. The country is all of a sudden full of [SYRIZA] people who give orders, snub their opponents and correct them by only having 16% [of the votes]. Imagine, if this 16% becomes 20% or 24%, they will start executing people…
Here’s the video. It’s from May 17. The above quote, for the Greek speaking people, is at the end of the clip.
