The authorities are confused
Judging by today’s performance Minister of State Georgios Gerapetritis, it is necessary to urgently allow people to leave the city, to their dacha, to the forest and to the sea: “using good weather, send citizens out of the city’s crowds, to open spaces.”
The reason for the proposal, which so dramatically changes the previous narratives of “sitting at home”, is that a split has begun in the government and officials understand that it is senseless to close people at home in warm spring weather, and, in general, it is useless. Since the population has reached the limit of patience and few people seriously react to intimidation.
So, following “reasonable logic”, according to Mr. Gerapetritis, it is necessary to set the people free and better – away from the cities.
