Greece has been stuck in an abusive marriage with its European partners. Of course, she has not been the perfect partner, but who has? No one deserves violence. No one deserves abuse. Everyone deserves hope, and not the delusional “you will be done by 2060, if you can maintain the hilariously unsustainable 3.5% primary budget surplus” kind of hope offered by Mr Schäuble.

Yiannis Mouzalas

Greek Minister of Migration

"The Winterization bet has been won" 
“There are no refugees or migrants living in the cold anymore. We successfully completed the procedures for overwintering, there were only 40 tents left in Vayiohori, near Thessaloniki, and another 100 in Athens" 

Greece terribly exposed by the "Minister's bet "

Throughout a year at least, photo or video coverage at the Lesvos' camp in Moria have been strictly not allowed to the press or anyone else  by the Ministry Of Migration. No wonder why .Two days after the minister's' reassurance that "he won the bet with winter" , the shaming photos were released on social media, by aid group, and became top story world round.
