The great disconnect between the elites in control of Greece and the common people was on full display during a visit to Lixouri by Minister Of Public Order Dendias. Loud shouts and resounding disapproval filled the streets as the political dud walked to the only place where he was wanted: a local Synagogue!
Nikos Dendias sought to continue the smoke and mirror pageantry of Samaras over the ruins, but did not take into the account the opinions of local residents. The useless Minister arrived in the early afternoon on the island via Super Puma helicopter to coordinate operations on the island with Secretary of Citizen Protection Patroklos Georgiadis .
As he walked through the streets of Lixouri, he received a barrage of loud jeers, angry hisses and shouts against him. When his numerous armed bodyguards began to move against the angry citizens, the insults and boos multiplied as Dendias escaped.
The irony of the self-proclaimed protector of “democracy” having to travel to a Synagogue in a military helicopter, with dozens of police guards even in deserted areas, to protect him from his own people’s scorn is a tragic sight to behold. Mr Dendias is simply not desired anywhere else.
