On the 24 June, the online version of the "Guardian" published an article titled, "Greece puts its islands up for sale to save economy", signed by Mrs. Elena Moya.
The article mentions that : "Desperate attempt to repay debts also driven by inability to find funds to develop infrastructure on islands"
and then continues
"Only 227 Greek islands are populated and the decision to press ahead with potential sales has also been driven by the inability of the state to develop basic infrastructure, or police most of its islands. The hope is that the sale or long-term lease of some islands will attract investment that will generate jobs and taxable income."
The funny thing is that the only proof for these claims is a reference to a web site of some private company (?), Private Islands , (www.privateislandsonline.com) that was even INACTIVE, when I tried to visit it!!!!
It is very disappointing to realize that "serious" newspapers are operating in terms of cheap propaganda, rather than serious journalism.
I already sent my complaints to the newspaper: firstname.lastname@example.org
