Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
If you are referring to Venizelos he, as a high profile legal scholar, is the guiding power behind almost all laws in the past 20 years, that have secured and institutionalized "diaploki", the marriage between, big business, media and politics that has created the de facto new Greek elites. He has masterminded the laws protecting Ministers from prosecution, laws that have reduced protection of forests and the environment, laws that give away the air-waves to the Oligarchs, that protected the bankster involved in the Proton Bank scandal. He was also the person in charge of the Olympics' preparations etc. etc. Truly PASOK could not have a more emblematic leader...
