What is wrong with your govt and one of your talking heads; your minister of finances? "Greece situation is a threat to the world economy", he said today. Is he a moron or he is smoking something? Never mind the globalization, inequality, poverty, terror of brutal capitalism, hegemony of the elite 1%-10%, hidng of at least 2 trillion dollars worth of stolen wealth by the elite (London is the biggest place they hide heir loot) and all other things that are in place to favour the elite and exploit the people of the world. Now he comes up with this, when poor victims of people like him and his govt stand up for their survival and justice, as "biggest threat to global economy:. What a moron or tallking head by those who are now becoming afraid that the uprising is taking place in Greece and soon to spread around the world. This is the "threat" to global hegemony to American, British , German and any other country's exploitators who managed to ruin the economies of the world in such a way that it only serves them, while the rest of us are doomed to become their modern age slaves.
Yes from that point of view, Greece does represent the threat to YOUR GLOBAL ECONOMY but SALVATION TO OUR GLOBAL ECONOMY. "OUR" means us the majority of people of the world who you managed to enslave using your "democracy" that is nothing but corpeoratism, the worse stage of cpitalism, designed to only serve and enrich you and your kind.
The critical mass of sufferers and victims of your terror is rising and as in Greece it'll rise to that critical level everywhere thus we will rise up and shake the terror of corporitism once and for all. The true terrorist of the modern world are you and your kind. Others, that you call terrorist are only reaction to your terror by violence you use on them, thus they are in fact freedom fighters. Hopefully this new movement will work itself by peaceful means. This if you do not reach for arms in your hands, thus trigger an all out revolution. Join us in solving this terrible problem you brought about and we'll all live in peace and prosperity.
Bravo GREECE, SPAIN....and many and all to come.

I still have not got my pension from IKA!!
Dear Sir/Madam,
I made application for my pension when I returned to the UK over two years ago and still I do not know what is happeneing. My concerns are two fold. Firstly I have moved address to:
23 Alexandria Road
EX10 9HD
28th April 2014
My old address was:
5 Oak Hill Cross Road
TQ14 8TN
I wrote to Panayoita Petropoulou IKA at 14-16 Nikiphorou Street Athens to tell her of my change of address but have not heard anything.I want to be sure that my address and contact details have been up-dated!
Secondly, I also asked her for information about when I might receive my pension but have heard nothing. These are our details.
My details
AMKA 09104801312
AMA 3283725
Wife’s details
AMA 2084389
AMKA 27094400564
I am not sure what we can do. I tried contacting the Greek Embassy in London but have not heard anything from them. So your office is my last hope. IKA have all papers necessary to process my application. This includes our marriage certificate and birth certificates and The National Insurance Stamp papers for contributions have been sent to IKA - I have done everything they have asked.
I would love to think you can help please - we are living on a very small income and my IKA pension would help. I will send all further information required. I lived and work in Patras during my 17 years in Greece.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Andrew Lawrence
