Moving On from Europe’s Past

By Andrew Stuttaford

The euro continues to help Europe move on from its, um, difficult past . . .
Via Ekathiremini:
In a public message marking the 46th anniversary of the overthrow of Greece’s democratically-elected government by a military junta, President Karolos Papoulias warned Greeks not to take democracy for granted. His warning came as a poll for Sunday’s Eleftherotypia newspaper indicated that 30 percent of Greeks thought “things were better under the dictatorship compared to today” . . .
The Eleftherotypia poll, conducted by Metron Analysis, suggested that 59 percent of Greeks think the level of security was greater during the junta, 46 percent believe their standard of living was better and 24 percent feel that Greece’s image abroad was superior . . .
