In the second part of the show, Thanos Dimadis focuses his research on the political impact of the crisis in Greece, attempting to investigate if it was indeed a very concerted effort from decision making centers abroad in order to blackmail the political consensus in our country. Key persons and known analysts attempt to give answers to important questions such as: What was the ultimate goal of Papandreou’s initiative for a referendum? How do they see Antonis Samaras abroad from his position of leader of the opposition? What does Richard Parker say, a personal adviser to George Papandreou and professor at Harvard University today, for those crucial moments? Who and why did they create the climate for a potential GrExit? What is Brussels answer to that and what is the response of Maria Damanaki to her relevant statement at the time?
