If anyone is STILL in any doubt about the nature of Chrysi Avgi (Golden Dawn), the neo-nazi party that won 7% of the vote in the previous election, this morning’s incident has shocked them.
The MP and Golden Dawn spokeman Ilias Kassidiaris, who is already to be put on trial for assaulting a student (trial postponed until Spetember) slapped and then tried to punch, KKE (Communist) MP Liana Kanelli, in the face live on TV. He then, allegedy, assaulted the programme editor before leaving the studio of Antenna TV. There is currently a warrant out for his arrest for the assault.
Twitter and other social networks are alive with news of this incident. Most people are outraged and many are asking how this party could possibly be allowed to be in government. Many of us were already asking that question but now it’s out there in the public domain which is the only really positive thing that could come out of this whole sordid, disgusting episode.
