Let's lose an eye for the economy


(LeftClickWe negotiate THE RECOVERY only to face the DOWNTURN.

Whoops!

According to some we're going Greek.
“To compare Australia's situation to that of Greece is irresponsible and is absolutely unacceptable for anyone laying claim to high office in this country.”
Hear. Hear. 

It's insidious talk. ( The Dolmade Effect. One Souvlaki  at a time.)

Just don't think about it. Oh my God: the very thought!  The very thought of it! Going Greek! (And I hate Ouzo.)

(Melbourne is the second largest Greek town on the planet,  so we cannot be immune [can we?]... from the contamination.)

It's economic botulism. Poisonous talk.

Just be aware -- be very aware -- of Greeks bearing bonds.

Think: Trojan horse.

Imagine: Julia Gillard as Helen of Troy. Tony Abbott as Achilles.

Under siege.

Our economy.

Our credit rating. Our AAA.Our financial good name.
Note to collective self--Wayne Swann
Commitment: Surplus budget by 2012-13.
Quest: This we gotta do...it would be "irresponsible"  and  "absolutely unacceptable" to not do it.
Means: Shoulders to the wheel. Noses to the grindstone. (And other available body bits deployed as hardware.) 
Other available body bits....

Now there's  a thought! (Thinks Wayne)

Those same Greeks remind us:
Κάλλιο να σου βγει το μάτι παρά το όνομα.
It's better to lose an eye than to get a bad name.
Except of course, it  will be our eyes...

Anything for the economy. Keep an eye out. Wayne says:
Give it a couple of weeks and it will probably turn into a mere inconvenience that you won't even think about ... And besides-- as Oedipus  reminds us (and Oedi, as a keen Greek, and one who claimed high office -- being a king-- gouged out both his eyes for dramatic effect) -- what good are your eyes to you if what you can see on the spread sheet doesn't give you financial joy.
One eyed for Australia.

AAAussie! AAAussie! AAAussie! Oi!Oi!Oi!

(Wink. Wink.)

Lost eye: good name.

(Say no more.)
