The Greek financial mess rumbles on although it may have not been making headlines so much lately. For the people of the Greece there is no escaping the madness. Following the failure to elect a majority government a further election is imminent. For now Greece has no elected government but rather politicians of differing views attempting to hold the fort, so to speak.
Yes we knew that they differed so much that none were able to form a coalition but we did not expect violence to break out during a televised debate.
Today June 6, 2012, there have been reports of a nasty altercation on such a debate. Illias Kasediaris was representing the extreme right party Golden Dawn. This neo nazi party is gaining a foothold in Grecian politics. He is a newly elected politician in Greece.
Tempers flared during the debate as those present talked about past events. Illias snapped threw a glass of water at one female and then slapped another across her face more than once. It made for terrible viewing.
If the Golden Dawn Party wanted to show that they were not simply a bunch of fascist thugs they have made a huge error. This man showed a nasty side to political debate which has no place in a decent society.
A warrant has been issued for his arrest after he stormed out of the building. Those present were unable to prevent his exit.
