World Aids day – Not just a fight against Aids, but clearly the corruption and neglect that runs rife within this sector…



To be honest I’m new to the whole HIV/Aids thing and if I’m honest it wasn’t what I thought I’d ever be involved in. An accidental bad career choice when I came to Greece exposed me to the corruption which had plagued one of Greece’s founder establishments – ACTUP ΔΡΑΣΕ HELLAS and since I still fight on having seen how ignorant so many people are within this sector, NGO’s, the government who have tried to cover this all up and the rest within this community who have failed to help themselves.

A previous member who has come out on the 10percent forum highlights further how the current president of this NGO exposed their medical details after they confided in him with such details – and that is only half the problem.

I worked there for nearly a year at the bequest of their President of the organisation after he asked me to turn down a job in crete having done several 3D promotional works for ACTUP for UNAids meetings in New York and Vienna. Unbeknown to me the current Board of Directors had been running it without any regulation for the best part of 10 years, gaining funding for non legal projects, claiming to be affiliated with other leading HIV/Aids organisations whilst not being connected in any way, just using their name to further their own career ambitions as they screwed the system, the people and the many people who had foolishly supported without question their methods, morals or their qualifications or experience.

Sadly since, a two year farce has exposed massive flaws in the whole network that claims to be apart of this integral support mechanism for those who are unfortunate to need such protection. As it turns out putting your trust in such organisations is more likely to cause you more harm than good in anyway whatsoever as they all seemingly allow, condone by affiliation or fail to address the massive areas of concern that highlights a complete breakdown in this so called community for the people.

What bothers me the most having come across this fckup of a situation is that it seems the people connected to working within HIV/Aids and the many Organisations they claim to, is that they don’t want to seem to even help themselves…

If that’s the case then why the hell are you doing what you pretend you’re doing? I know the people who do need help and support would probably like to know that if they feel they have to confide in someone that they aren’t going to have some criminals with connections to the government gain access to their details, jeopardise their health and safety and confidence and allow God knows what to happen with their trust and their medical details – which incidentally is what is currently being allowed to happen here in Greece as the main Ministry responsible for HIV/Aids, the Greek CDC (ΚΕΕΛΠΟ) is doing having, employed them in the first place!

Yes, welcome to World Aids day in Greece. Not got enough problems in general with the IMF f*cking us all up, we all happily allow the state to f*ck us when people need dedicated help and medical support… I read earlier than an organised event is taking place here called ‘F*CK AIDS‘, they should just lose the niceties and call it ‘F*CK YOU‘, part sponsored by ΚΕΕΛΠΝΟ‘s finest no doubt, the very same Ministry which allows anyone to pretend to be Doctors, and steal YOUR tax paying money. A whole hierarchy which is happy to cover up endangering people’s lives, but let’s not stop there when we can ‘F*CK‘ everyone some more…

So far in Greece, many of the organisations who are inter connected within this community and health sector have ALL failed to address the issues raised. Forget for now the fact this organisation has been stealing state money for it’s own means, forget that they have been running non legally since the current Board of Directors elected themselves into their respective positions in 1999 0r 2000, or 2002 onwards, (depending upon which lies the president has elected to tell you at the time), and try and forget that they have and still are laughingly employed by the system of health that so many of these organisations work within. This however pales into significance to the fact that the current President Kostadis Kabourakis and another member of the board Andreas Grilleas have been illegally claiming to be Doctors without qualification or registration – and employed by ΚΕΕΛΠΝΟ, the Greek CDC which has still failed to address such issues, nearly 2 years after it being brought to their attention. The fact that the Financial Director of ACTUP ΔΡΑΣΕ HELLASC.Botsi has been covering this up and is responsible for the results of the funding Investigation by ΥΔΑΣ which found them guilty of defrauding the state of nearly 200,000.00 euro’s of deception, for providing non valid receipts when she was the head of ESTER and the European projects within Greece – at the same time she chaired a committee of NGO’s for ΚΕΕΛΠΝΟ! – Says a lot about the integrity and current way the many organisations and the state work within this sector.

These receipts incidentally were the same ones in which the President asked myself and a volunteer to fabricate documentation for in which we refused and then he changed the locks and pretended I didn’t work there after highlighting this to the rest of the Board! The same receipts that the President claims we tampered with by myself and the volunteer some six months after being denied access to the property, and in which he then submitted to ΥΔΑΣ (the Ministry of Foreign Affairs) who after finding him guilty of such activities, tries to claim in his statement that we were responsible for their verdict! The fact that these receipts were witnessed by myself during the Investigation, as well as severalk other interested parties, not to mention the ΥΔΑΣ financial team, whereby we confirmed that they were the same non relevant receipts that we’d originally refused to commit fraud with, which contained items for everything from trips to the Financial Directors summer house, Cat food and sun tan lotion is a true reflection on what happened to the funding that was abused by the current Board as they failed to also provide valid account of the projects that they claimed to have been involved in during this period.

This was all highlighted in a meeting I attended at Praxis nearly a year ago whereby members of most of the other NGO’s within this field sat and listened,  the shameful parody here is that most of these members present were aware of this and still have failed to do anything yet happily like to fool themselves into believing that they are the ‘responsible’ sector governing this area of health and social concern.

One such member of one of these NGO’s removed items highlighting the corruption in this sector as they planned a march to demonstrate against the Ministry who had failed to address many issues so far. The same Ministry which had allowed ΑCTUP and ΚΕΕΛΠΝΟ to run itself in such a way. This was the same NGO which knew of these issues and which has failed to act so far despite having personally met members who pretended to be interested when it suited them to know and prepare their response no doubt if questioned about why they have done nothing to help the system so far, allowing this to go on further, damaging more people, allowing the to gain further illegal funding as they masquerade as this Organisation still, slandering all they can in an attempt to divert the truth from being exposed.

Then we have organisations such as helMSIC and many of the others who have been approached who deliberately try and suppress the facts from people, collaborating still further with people who have deliberately set out to deceive the authorities, public and people who gave their trust – the patients.

Firstly this seems to send out a worrying message to the rest of the community declaring that they clearly have no morals or ethics either and will happily ally themselves with people who commit such atrocities within the health sector knowing full well the issues and the main problems highlighted which are exactly that this sort of acceptance is what has led to the whole system here being not only untrustworthy, but failing to have a backbone and support standards in which you’d expect an organisation to adhere to.

Then we have organisations such as which seem to openly support such actions by allowing the President of ACTUP to provide his slanderous press release and yet as they we’re clearly given my email address in advance to be able to block me from adding further comment disallow myself from being able to defend against the false accusations that have been provided by an already known liar and thief who has so far blamed everything except Global warming for his actions.

hivHumanism - blocked my email address to deny me the right to defend myself.

hivHumanism - blocked my email address to deny me the right to defend myself.

It appears it’s a good thing to know like minded people with no ethics who will cover up your actions and present a slanderous allegations without allowing you to defend yourself from them. Another organisation to trust ? Clearly not when they affiliate with such overt immorality, protecting their own.

Within ACTUP‘s slanderous statement is the fact that they still failed to address the current tuths which have been discovered but also a selection of complete and deliberate lies to cast aspersions on those who like myself have been fighting to expose these people. Interesting to note that they bring up allegations of Blackmail nearly a year later, and after they have been exposed in the national newspaper for their activities, and even more so as the only ones capable of possibly gaining such information to Blackmail people are the very same people who deliberately set out to deceive from the very beginning. The only ones who had the opportunity to confidential data within this organisation were the ones who had been collating data from HIV patients, those who had lied and taken part in ‘research’ within the main HIV/Aids unit in Greece who had been providing false documentation to validate their NGO from the beginning… There are obvious contenders with their behaviour so far to date that stand out, threatening their former members, disclosing medical data, theft, providing false documentation, and usurpation by illegally claiming to be Doctors to name but a few items so far proven! Their slanderous accusations have only made further evidence available for the courts and provided a real in-depth view into what these people represent.

I myself worked as web designer within the offices of ACTUP whereby any information was bare at best, usually working with no phone or Internet as they hadn’t paid the bills, and as the president was the only one to appear rarely when it suited himself incidentally all real information ie,  all medical data or files, research or otherwise was deliberately kept at the shared house of Kabourakis and Botsi, the president and Financial Director’s house. The same two people working at KEELPNO with such access. Since, the number of people who have sought issue with the exposure and the people who highlighted this as opposed to the facts is a sad reflection on the lies and negativity people have to seeking the truth rather than relying on hear say and idle gossip.

This whole process that has now been handed over to the many relevant authorities was done with information provided, in black and white by the respective bodies, data collected proving these claims and with the sole purpose of trying to get responsible people to act, those within this community rather than people such as myself who have no direct affiliation or knowledge on such matters, and who speak the language here a little stronger than myself however this never happened, and apart from a few people, no one has sought to apply common sense, decency or rightful action in this matter and I try by writing these damned entries to refresh people’s responsibilities in the hope that someone will at least try and show that there is this is a community which cares and will act, I hope for Organisations to show their self worth and to provide proof that standards exist, and there is good in the world somewhere… How stupid is that?

Its truly remarkable to see so many people with such negative energy helping people of what can only guess are people with the same standards. They clearly have no interest in really helping the community, the people they set out to help, or those who they say they are their to help, and yet this is all some people have.

The list of people who have provided the platform for such activity is astounding, Politicians, Organisations to the Ministry and its Board who set this up.

After contacting ALL the respective organisations within this sector to warn them of such behaviour, of such immoral conduct it shock me to see how few are prepared to actually do anything. Is it because they are all as bad? Is it because they think this sort of behaviour is acceptable and something that is widespread within the whole HIV/Aids sector? Is it because they all have something else to hide maybe when so many interconnected organisations all sit back and openly allow and in some cases such people to practice as they do?

Surely not the correct response you’d want from such organisations. Non Government Organisations were originally once their to support the people, to fight for what the government didn’t do and for standing up to the many things that for whatever reason were unjust in the world. Is it that all these organisations have also similarly lost sight in their ways, or is it far worse than that now.

Maybe like ACTUP ΔΡΑΣΕ ΗΕLLAS, NGO’s are just an extension of an already ineffective system which cares only for itself and it’s own backslapping. People creating causes to make themselves feel self important, fighting problems which they fail to address let alone fight, after all, three of the members of the board of ACTUP were employed by the Government, providing the annual state report on HIV/Aids and yet ridiculously then being allowed, or allowing themselves to provide the shadow report as ACTUP… Asking themselves for funding, and bizarrely having it granted without accountability… Hmmm…

So, is it a case of Corrupt NGO or Useless Government policies run by criminals – you work it out as to me in the brief experience I’ve had so far there’s a line so minuscule to see that separates the two, if one at all.

Unfortunately I’d like to report that I have gained some leverage on people being able to do their job properly here, to tell you of the many organisations who were shocked and appalled by such activity and that the system really does care, people aren’t still illegally claiming to be something that they are not – but I can’t.

Organisations which deceive everyone like this will serve time for providing false documentation to the many bodies which are now investigate them, they will be exposed for their slanderous behaviour and their any illegal activities, and they will be recognised by the community for what they truly are, but whether or not I’ll ever be able to say that the many organisations within this field are actually the sort of organisations who have morals, ethics and help push and fight antisocial behaviour, well, I still hope so.

Hopefully World Aids day will mean something one day when people actually try and help make the system that they all idly boast abut actually be something to be proud of, for those in need it’s a shame.

The process has begun but the fight goes on…

I’m sick of doing this for people and sick of people saying I shouldn’t but if someone doesn’t will you?

For those who have been allowed to carry on and who lie and misrepresent themselves as they abuse their positions still, rest assured that the truth is out, justice has begun as it was always going to expose the facts regardless of the many lies coming out.


Ok, let’s not dwell on past wars – let be positive and look to all the possible future ones…

Well, after my last note referring to the naming of one of the kittens Adolf – (which has stuck by the way) I was left feeling all nostalgic and caught in a bit of a mental twilight zone I guess, plus on SKAI TV here in Greece they’re showing that rather groovy documentary ‘Apocalypse’ starring everyone’s favourite Meglomaniac – Adolf (WW2) Hitler.

It’s sort of left me pondering a bit and so I felt the need to elaborate on the potential residue of the whole surreal after-taste that has been left in my brain…

Plus catching the end of a (what would happen in the event of a Nukefest being opened on your ass) show which was on last night gave me food for thought. Lots… As the guy calmly reminded me how horrific it would be, sweet dreams I thought. Should I check I locked the door again or should I just pray for a quick passing…

TV feeding our paranoia, well, mine anyway…

It’s maybe just the ‘Hitler’ factor induced by my rant, (not to be confused with the ‘X’ factor of course and although there are many similarities between Simon Cowell and the late Adolf ‘Blitzkrieg’ Hitler), I’m not sure if ‘Hitler’ would be as cruel as the many contestants who appear on TV to torture us year after year but I do like the Idea of a ‘Hitler’ factor though. People fighting it out to be the most evil Despot for the chance to be signed by a leading Arms manufacturer or something.

“My name’s Kostadis and my favourite Historical Maniac is Vlad the Impaler – Tonight I’m going to be crucifying people to the Rolling Stones’s ‘I Can’t get no Satisfaction’…

"Tonight I'm going to be Vlad the Impaler..."

"Tonight I'm going to be Vlad the Impaler..."

It would be a ratings winner I’m sure!

Meanwhile, despite the existence of the Geneva Convention and today’s Human Rights declaration, modern day activists and history itself, nothing it seems will ever protect us from such modern day misfortunes though. I am still on about X-Factor for those who weren’t sure… I neither like or hate the show, however I do enjoy it at it’s optimum stage when they are mercilessly allowing people who are clearly the Lee-Harvey Oswald’s of the Music Industry – (Patsy’s in a televisual assassination of the senses) kind of way to out contest each other barbarically. People should realise at an early age that half their friends and family were just humouring them, a few were deaf or ignorant to the whole concept of sound being produced with skill, and the others we’re just sick enough to hope they’d be THAT stupid that they would actually think they had a chance and would appear on one of the many shows which we all indulge in occasionally.

In Greece it’s a treat for me as I get to learn a little too whilst I get to reinforce my beliefs that music or lack of it is universal. If anything untalented Greek sounds better than English as it’s not only indecipherable but makes no sense either, bonus…

Firstly I believe that if you have what it takes to succeed in the Industry then you wouldn’t dare appear on such a program, you’d live the dream in all its multi coloured poverty stricken glory, dying to live for your art. If you need a choreographer to show you which foot goes where after a singing coach has taught you how to sing and your PR team has made you into a suitable package then you’re already f*cked to be fair.

I’m sure if you sampled a few Hitler speeches and ran them through a few processes then he’d be marketable again. After all they did it with Cher!

Meanwhile we often overlook the many good things to have come out of mankind’s ever growing need for Government sponsored Mass-murder, the penultimate game of life – War.

The very essence of it requires us to document it in any form possible, to film it, record it however we may and then shape it into epic films for ‘entertainment’ or snippets for news reviews or documentaries. It provides pages and pages of it in untold different formats and while technology advances to satisfy our craving for more, nothing supressess the need for knowledge on such matters. To provide analogies, to study it so we can be better at it the next time round, and to create ever more fearful opposition long before it exists.

Thankfully now we have the Penguin Investigation Bureau. They however can’t save us from everything.

We all like to gloat in our Victories and leap to the defence of our defeats and so dwelling on the past, as with most things in life it only serves to open maybe painful wounds which take time to heal.

To counter this mentality I suggest that now we plan ahead, we look forward to the next modern day conflict with enthusiasm and passion… Preparing ourselves for the inevitable is surely more intelligent than waiting till it happens? Am I wrong… I mean, it’s like those the people we read about who all burn to death after living under the shadow of a Volcano for years, people who get attacked by sharks after swimming in shark infested waters.

HELLO – Which of the most obvious warning signals did you miss out on first?

With recollections of all the many good war films they provide footage for, stories and of course, the many online games whereby we can relive those vital few seconds before we’re blown to kingdom come, shot through the head at range or in which we can have our throats slit lovingly by some nerd thousands of miles away in the comfort of their own home, maybe now’s a time to reflect on the what, when and if.

All that devastating carnage, history shows isn’t good for us.

I’m not saying we should all live in Nuclear bunkers or anything as drastic as that – I should, you do what you want, but maybe a little forward planning is an idea.

Currently relocating, please mind the land mines and trip wire... Be sure to sign the Insurance form before ringing the Bell!

Currently relocating, please mind the land mines and trip wire... Be sure to sign the Insurance form before ringing the Bell!

Picking up on North Korea lobbing a few more shells about AGAIN highlights the severity of things in one perspective. Why care, it’s thousands of miles away I hear you say, well, not so long ago some poor bast*rd in Stalingrad thought that about Jerry in WW2 till Hitler decided to go scrumping for red apples.

More appropriate though is maybe the marketing machine’s perspective. New weaponry always sells well, home based landmines, razor wire and a good automated sentry gun just to keep the wife at bay would be a winner to many marital enthusiasts anyway, add to this the fear of not just the global ‘War on Terror’ but the fear of any number of other Government made autrocities are looming near and then we can surely all tool up and get bizzy with it.

Kids love war, most men do too to be fair, and women whilst appearing to be the pacifying force in life are usually the cause for such scenarios. Helen of Troy to name but one case…

So why wait. It’s time to get into the whole future war ethic.

No more ‘Don’t mention the War’… Let’s, and lets remember, all the good they’ve brought us over the years. . . ?!

What would religion be without all the wars fought by all faiths over the years? The only ones not famous for war are the Hari krishna’s, so that must mean they’re about due soon so keep an eye on them if you see them in groups wandering about.

Be warned and beware. On behalf of the immortal words of the commentator on last night’s doomfest, ‘life could go from room temperature to over a million degrees in the blink of an eye’, assuming you still had an eye left…

My favourite bit was hearing him say that if the initial Blast didn’t kill you, the fireball that followed or the impending shockwave that would rupture all your organs before you were smashed against the 500 mile an hour winds that were hurling what was once your city into you, then the fallout and radiation would cause you ‘severe problems’.

You f*cking think so…?

My dear Greek friends, please feel free to join in the fun…

After all, it’s your system more than mine first and foremost, secondly it’s your Health sector and thirdly a prime example of the state at present, who run it, try and cover it up, and who then after being shamefully exposed by their deception – then turn on the hand that feeds them… After they are removed from their positions (thankfully) for being 1) unqualified, 2) unregistered, 3) immoral, 4) unethical and 5) liars & thieves…

Not necessarily in that order though all relevant I assure you!

Please use a translation tool such as Yahoo babelfish or Google chrome’s if you need but do.

I won’t bore you with a run down, many of you may know or at least should do by now and if you want Greece to be a better place for us all, want to know where the Money goes, who steals it and just how bad they are, well, the comedy element is provided by the President of this NGO who for 10 years illegally claimed to be a Doctor as they stole from the state, staff, and the valuable time and effort given by so many volunteers who were abused, lied to and deceived by the current Board of Directors at ACTUP ΔΡΑΣΕ HELLAS.

Who were previously involved in the projects at KEELPNO to which they ran and now criticise… Hence the note.

Please have a read and ask some questions yourselves, I’m sure they’d provide a number of false responses for you as they have with the courts, the state and the people so far…

You can find a complete run down of events so far here on the ACTUP section :

BUT, The comedy really starts here though :

I’m sincerely hoping that they don’t sensor the comments again, having no response to the truth doesn’t sit well with this NGO as they have proven so far to enjoy lying without any unsubstantial proof to back up any of the events or actions discovered to date.

I didn’t want to really have to get into this till nearer World Aids Day to be honest but having nearly hurt myself laughing at the farce unfold I had to hope that I could at least share it with an number of other people who are either interested in the state and how to help make Greece run without lowlife pond-scum like this abusing their positions within Ministries so far. 10 years this joke has been allowed to run its course.

How do you feel about people pretending to be Doctors employed by KEELPNO? Stealing your tax paying money as they live it up at your expense, running non legal projects which endanger those it claims to help, is this what you expect from your Government…?

It’s matters not that they are connected with HIV/Aids, this was just the easiest area of health to manipulate, the opportunity to prey upon people that they chose to exploit with minimum fear of recrimmination suited them well for 10 years.

Knowing that most people were too exposed to complain, and too reliant on their help or sensitivity they elected to move into a very vulnerable and fearful area of society, working with complete impunity knowing that their Ministry (which has shown recently) would try and cover it up to protect their own exposure.

Two years fighting this has discovered the events to be factual, we have proof and more importantly, the relevant authorities have the information too.

Look into the facts please –  and don’t ever say you want a better World, community or Country without at least being aware of what is happening, secondly don’t ever think you can’t make a difference, if you don’t educate yourself to things, you never will make a difference but you can…

Health, sexual origin, Political beliefs or even which football team you support are irrelevant in this. It’s one thing to have people illegally claiming to be Doctors, quite another for the state to actually employ them and allow them to help themselves to funding without accountability as they masquerade as something they are not for 10 years.

I worked there by accident, friends and Volunteers I know dedicated their time, love and support to these people to try and make a difference. I have no bias to whether someone has HIV, is Black or White or from Mars and beyond, we pay for this, YOU pay for this.

Want to make a difference…? Do you really…

Not many do. Too many people ‘like’ to press ‘like’ to Organisations, ‘like’ causes and all the other stupid bullsh*t opportunities there are to save the Planet but when it comes down to it, what do people do really?

There is no ‘like’ button in life that matters other than our own choice to do all we can. Those who do need help in life and those who bang the drum when an event like world Aids Day comes up all pretend they care so it seems.

UNAids, WAC and all the other health organisations that have been notified about this NGO are all guilty of neglect, and should be ashamed of themselves for doing nothing.

Those who all have tried to sit back and pretend everything’s all right and who have done nothing about this NGO when it claims to be apart of them. Whilst this NGO sits under their umbrella and network, presented itself at HIV/Aids conferences knowing nothing other than embezzlement, deceit and fraudulent behaviour, they allowed this, they still do, before they used them as KEELPNO representatives, whenever it suits as ACTUP.

Maybe making sure that those who claim to be doing some good is actual, and that an awareness on those who state to be involved are indeed what they say they are. Would you think that any Organisations with the prestige of those mentioned would be responsible enough to look into such matters, would come out with their views, release a statement clarifying the relationship between itself and the NGO in question and would you like to think that they would be concerned about members of it’s community putting the safety, confidentiality of people in need at risk, not to mention the fact that they have been claiming to be medical staff and breaching health, safety and confidentiality as well as the legal implications…?

Hmmm, well I did too at first, two years on and it’s still ‘business as usual’.

Fortunately awareness is a temporary measure till justice kicks in.

Time to give the world a wedgie…

Unfortunately I’ve been too busy to find time for a well orchestrated rant lately, so I thought I’d start early and get the poison out my system with a number of things that have been juicing my mental loins recently.

Sooner or later, you're gonna get fckdup...

Sooner or later, you're gonna get fckdup...

Case issue 1 – The dumb assed builders who have been trying to build a block of flats next to me for over 4 years now. I loosely use the word ‘build’ and ‘builders’ in that sentence as I don’t want to taint those who actually know how to erect a building in less time than it takes to construct the Pyramids.

I’ve worked in my youth on a building site for some six months when I was in between jobs in the UK, and the one housing estate I was involved in took less than 6 months to raise 36 houses, build the roads and lay the gardens – and we were taking it easy so I’m really at a loss when I see four to five guys emerging day after day without any substantial gain being made from a block of flats that looks exactly as it did when I moved in three years ago… At least two years after I know of it commencing.

Apart from the f*cking noise which usually begins everyday at 7am, their incessant screaming and shouting and their ability to p*ss the whole neighbourhood off, I’m struggling to justify what the hell they have achieved in the time taken.

Sure, my trees are all covered in dust and the garden’s now covered in rubbish strewn from the many balconies that these wankers chuck stuff off from, and hell yeah, I love their high pitched pathetic voices wailing at each other CONSTANTLY. Their need to answer their mobile phones and bypass the orbiting satellites by shouting as loud as they can serves me well too, especially when the only time these twats aren’t making any noise is when a phone rings and they feel the need to inform the whole area as to what a complete prick they are.

The way they block the street off with their vehicles, endlessly trying to park like lame old women brings me great delight too, however on the odd occasion they get a puncture from the many ‘stray’ nails lurking about everywhere, I do briefly feel a warm glow inside.

I do despair to their overall incompetence though, however I feel that sadly they aren’t completely at fault. Their arsehole of an owner rarely seems to have a clue as to what’s going on, being more content to look smug when he arrives in his Mercedes and needing to take at least 15 minutes to get out the car, allowing everyone within a 2 mile radius to appreciate what a complete wanker he is too. You don’t need to sit in the doorway shouting at the top of your voice for us to know that numbnuts, it was clear the day the guy sold you that car and allowed you to drive it away.

One day it took him nearly 15 minutes to park the damned thing, I nearly Car-Jacked him myself, I was debating pulling him out his f*cking car and driving it through the ground floor when I thought to myself, this is no good, I’ll have to hide all the other bodies too and If I need to cover them in Cement, it may take six months to arrive…

As for the other guy’s, well I suspect that they are just that immune from the necessity to actually finish the stupid building by now, half probably realising that when they do they may have no other ‘work’ – used loosely again, and the others probably forgot what they were supposed to be doing three years ago.

Every so often at night you can hear a dull banging sound, my guess is that’s there’s a small Greek guy trying to find his way out of that hole he started digging many moons ago…

Issue 2 – My other bitch is the f*ckwit who was driving the 623 bus yesterday afternoon. Apart from being an hour and a half late (earlier than the other twat the day before), he then proceeded to try and kill everyone by driving like a complete idiot. Not by trying to make up on lost time which you may hope for, but because whatever made him so late had clearly p*ssed him off to the point whereby he seemed happy to sacrifice everyone on the bus, on the street, pavement and Land Sea and Air in his pursuit of meeting God.

It was only when an elderly gentleman had gotten on and asked him where the hell he was going as the route we’d begun taking had been diverted due to the local weekday market, but by now the bus driver instead of actually rejoining the route seemed to be heading directly for Ano Patissia, the last stop.

Well, it’s times like this that I do wish I spoke more Greek. I had a pretty good Idea what the old man said to the Bus driver anyway though, he was extremely clear in his manner and the way he nearly blew steam out both his neck and arse left me with no illusions as to what was being discussed. The bus driver tried to make clear how he was feeling and before he had chance to finish, the elderly gentleman had one last outburst, rang the bell and when the bus stopped and the doors opened, he showed him the hand ‘να ρε’ and casually got off.

Priceless… He was still mumbling to himself, and for probably the rest of the day – the Bus driver that is… As for the old guy I kind of hope he went home, dusts off his old shotgun and goes to wait for the return trip. Anyway, the bus driver slowed down and almost kept to a reasonably safe speed for the rest of the way, ‘almost’ anyway. He seemed so shocked, and to be fair at one point I was hoping the old guy was gonna belt him one. I was all geared up for it anyway, I’d have had to have stepped in, I couldn’t allow and old man to start hitting a man at work, doing his job without joining in.

Even after he’d gotten off I wanted to give him a slap, probably actually more than before which was saying something.

So, fortunately I managed to get to the train station alive. Quite a novelty too this year as it actually works now as well. Well, I say works, it goes for about three stations before the ‘builders’ working on that have got it in ruins for about a further five or six stations, and then again you have to use your teleportation skills to get about. It’s unfair to try and compare Greek transport to British transport, my hatred of British Rails taints any unbiased opinion and the Greek transport system is still a work in progress, like my flats.

It was so bad at one point that I used to get on the train heading the wrong way to catch it going the other way three stops as they only allowed the train to stop at certain stations going one way…?!


A train, with doors on ‘both’ sides of the vehicle, going both ways, and yet some halfbrained monkey decides to only go one way and allow people on at specific stations…?! Logic was, or am I missing something in the equation…

My last bit of a rant is about these cursed Elections here that seemed to have been going on forever, any longer in fact and I’d have to probably put my money on the builders actually finishing first.

Thankfully I didn’t get all worked up about it. Several reasons really, one I just didn’t care. Two, I just didn’t care, and three, hmmm, the overwhelming choice of corrupt, non ethical lying thieving bastard wasn’t quite explained to me clear enough, and then I resorted to my first two choices, frankly, I just didn’t care.

Till I actually see someone here actually trying to change the way this socio-corrupt system works, it wouldn’t matter if you put the Virgin Mother in charge, we’re still gonna get screwed. That’s sadly what the Greek system does to you.

You try and help it, it f*cks you, you watch it f*ck people, it f*cks you. You try and fix it and everyone complains and you get f*cked. You try and make a difference and the people people f*cking you f*ck you some more because you may stop them from being able to f*ck you. You don’t do anything and complain about it, but do nothing, you still get f*cked.

When you come to Greece Papandreou himself should be waiting for you at the airport with a large Jar of Vaseline wearing nothing but a fake smile and an erection. It’s probably not his fault, but he’s gonna f*ck you too…

I have my own observations about Greece’s system anyway, and being unlucky enough to end up having to fight a bunch of lying corrupt despicable cretins as I did through coming to work and live a normal life wasn’t easy anyway, but sh*t happens, but what does p*ss me off is when people here do nothing about it. A few have even said I have no right to do anything as it’s not my country, not my problem. Well no, actually it is.

When the system tried to f*ck me over personally and allowed people to try and get away with ruining my life, stealing and threatening me, erm… yes, it became my problem. It became their problem, and it’ll become any f*cker who tries the same’s problem too. I didn’t ask for this sh*t, but I’ll recycle any that comes my way, and serve it up warm -that’s a fact.

I do love Greece but that doesn’t mean I can’t hate certain things about it. It’s not anti-Greek in anyway, I’m from the UK and there’s lots I really hate about that cold wet miserable sh*thole, so don’t take it personally, everywhere we live has some good and some bad. The things to hate are often justifiable though, mainly as we all hate them too, if not then we should as they let us all down most of the time.

I hear more malice to this Country from Greeks who have had a lifetime of this sh*t than I’ll hopefully ever have to endure before I match a Greek about their thoughts on the system but I won’t simply put up with it. Why should I or you, we deserve better.

If I’m paying for the priviledge of being f*cked, at least tickle my nuts and talk dirty to me, maybe try and wear something sexy for God’s sake, don’t just sit in your government office and invoice me for it after you’ve helped yourself to all you can at my expense in the first place.

Corruption here is sadly like a pandemic, and rightly so begun my story with (ΚΕΕΛΠΝΟ-KEEΛ). The Greek CDC, the governing body for infectious diseases, parasites and all manner of other degenerate maliciousness. Having dealt with a hierarchy that breeds corruption, which allows and helps it, and whose ‘legal’ department abuses every law to cover up the truth, its unsurprising to discover that this runs deep in it’s veins. Multiply this with the number of government offices who have unqualified, inexperienced people who don’t even know their own job let alone the point of the Place in which they work and hello, welcome to the Greek system. There a quite a few people who do know the deal and who can do what they should, (I’m guessing anyway) however the life and energy of these people is usually squeezed out of them long before the frappe break kicks in and they hand you over to another self righteous wanker who treats you with outright contempt for making them actually have to do a bit of their job.

When something is this infected – it’s probably better off being put out if it’s misery. This unfortunately would be my whole campaign for resolving many of the issues surrounding this organisation and one or two that have been discovered to be just as bad who nest themselves within it’s protected umbrella and who abuse us, the state and the system.

I will openly speak badly of this sector of Governance though with some delight as it’s ill governed, run by idiots with no moral or ethical principles, liars and thieves who are often incompetent at performing the simplest of tasks which they are set up to do, and YES, I speak from experience. When I say that you can go to a Ministry, (or several as the case is), with hard evidence as to who is stealing what, how and when and who has been pretending to be Doctors for the very same Ministry and they do nothing, it’s not just appalling, it’s embarrassing, and a pathetic evaluation of the ‘system’ here. It doesn’t get any worse than that – I sincerely hope so anyway however fear that if you were to scratch the surface it would.

More of this can be found here but that’s only part of the problem. The sick individuals who deceive people, pretend to be Doctors, who jeopardise the health and safety of those who seek aid are clearly one part of the problem but what hope do any of us have if the system doesn’t address these issues and make substantial changes so that others can’t do just as bad if not worse! So far in over two years fighting to highlight this criminal hideout, hardly any one has even been prepared to accept there is a problem, the hierarchy all the way up has shown complete and utter contempt for everyone by refusing to alter its code of practice, by placing safeguards to prevent such abuse, and to account for all the money stolen.

It’s not surprising to people’s trepidation when they hear that Greece is in the sh*t and needs money to pull itself out the deficit, Greece doesn’t need money, we give it more than enough. What it needs is these bastards who keep stealing it to be hanging from the lamp posts along Pattission…
