Greece suspends state broadcaster ERT to “save money”

The Greek government has shut down the public broadcaster ERT, calling it a “haven of waste”.

The Greek national TV has gone in black.
To the shook of the population, the Greek national TV has gone in black.

Viewers watching the news on the main TV channel saw the screens go to black late on Tuesday evening.

All employees have been suspended pending a re-organisation. Thousands of people held a protest against the decision outside ERT headquarters.

It is the latest move in rafts of spending cuts and tax rises aimed at leading the country out of recession.
“ERT is a case of an exceptional lack of transparency and incredible extravagance. This ends now,” government spokesman Simos Kedikoglou said earlier.

While all 2,500 employees would be sacked, he added they would be paid compensation and would be able to apply for work when the corporation relaunches as a smaller, independent public broadcaster.

The head of ERT’s foreign desk, Odin Linardatou, said the announcement took journalists by surprise.

“We are very shocked, we are angry,” she told the BBC’s Newshour programme. “What I cannot accept in a democracy is that Greece will not have a public broadcaster.”

My comment:

Greece could have suspended its parliament to save money. As a member of the European Union, Greece do no longer need a national parliament.

The national parliaments in Europe has no veto powers. Any national law that contradicts the new Eu law, have to be suspended, and the laws of the “reich” implemented.

To suspend the national state TV is a strange move. Normally, the elites use such TV-channels to indoctrinate people. I guess it is a proof of the chaotic conditions in Greece.

At the end of the age there will be chaos, and people will be in panic.

 Luke 21:25

There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea.

The first thing a occupying force will try to control of shut down in the pro-nationalistic TV.   Greece has earlier been occupied by Nazi-Germany, and was under the heel of Fascist dictators from 1967 to 1974. Le us see what is in the pipeline this time.  Yet another revolution?
