Leaders of Greeks


I must say that I'm beginning to admire the straightforwardness of the recently elected Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras. Whilst many would argue that his ideas on national debt are a bit too blas√© evidence suggests that he may be more openly true to his beliefs than many other (similar) politicians and is certainly no slave to tradition.

Normally Greek Prime Ministers are sworn into office via a religious ceremony conducted by the Archbishop of all Greece; Engineering graduate Tsipras is an Atheist and has informed the current Primate that his services are not required, the swearing-in ceremony will be a secular one. However if there are religious ministers who would prefer some supernatural theatre with their oath taking then a suitably religious person will be on hand to stand in for the creator of the Universe; who is clearly much too busy killing African children to be there himself.
