Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Just as in many other desperately corrupt countries, the rewards of that growth stays in a few well-connected hands and there is no trickle down.

No I don't recommend ignoring it, but I really don't know what can be done about it. the government is the problem, not the solution. Elections are just basically stolen. Somebody once explained to me how the mayor of a small town got elected despite the fact that almost nobody voted for him. Not only was nobody surprised, nobody got angry cos as far as they're concerned, that's how the system "works".
