Socialists against wealth redistribution

Alas there has not been a wave of Damascene conversions, but rather PASOK - the Greek Socialist party - has just had its fox well and truly peppered with buckshot by New Democracy, the relatively sound party ruling the land of the Hellenes at the moment.

ND's decision to ladle out the drachmas euros to "help pull 500,000 Greeks above the poverty line" has left PASOK shouting 'Foul!', 'Electioneering!', 'Bribe!' etc.

And there was I thinking that as good socialists they'd be all in favour of this sort of thing.

Didnt Gorgon use the phrase
"pull above the poverty line"?

Must be from the book of standard issue marxist bullshit

Wouldn't surprise me. This, of course, is 'relative' poverty and therefore means less than nothing.

It make sthem hard moving argets, but you pity the drudgery of life they force themselves to experience.
