According to an opinion poll conducted by VPRC for Epikera magazine, the Coalition of the Radical Left, known as SYRIZA, which opposes a credit deal with the EU and IMF, is once again in the lead in the election race. If the elections took place next Sunday, SYRIZA would get 30 percent of the vote compared to 26.5 percent for conservative New Democracy, which supports the credit agreement. SYRIZA is competing with New Democracy to become the biggest party in parliament in 17 June elections that could send further shock waves through Europe. Last week’s opinion polls put SYRIZA behind New Democracy by between 1.3 and 5.7 percentage points. SYRIZA wants to halt austerity programs, restore social spending, and continue to receive the payments from the Eurozone and the IMF to keep Greece from bankruptcy.

The Western media trumpeted the previous polls, which seemed to show an advantage for New Democracy. Where are they now? THEY’RE SILENT! If you needed proof of the rightward tilt of the Western media, here it is. Unfortunately, very few will notice anything. You see, the Western élite knows how to repress people and keep them sheepishly docile. You don’t lock them up… you give them money and baubles… you dangle shiny consumer goods in front of them… they “police” themselves, sadly enough. Most won’t pick up their heads from the trough… and that’s the way it is for all too many at present, like it or not. The carrot IS stronger than the whip… I’ve seen it. It’s not pretty…
