Why Greece won't get better

This is a perfect example of why the political situation won't get any better in Greece. This aired earlier today on Greek television. It was a political debate that had members from different Greek parties. The young man who gets verbally attacked by some of the other guests is the representative of Greece's Golden Dawn party. They party is a far-right nationalist party that seeks to stamp out illegal immigration in Greece. There are nearly 3 million immigrants in Greece today, many of them illegal. During this debate, the two women launch personal attacks against the Golden Dawn's representative. The women in the white is a member of Greece's communist party and clearly doesn't like the man. The video has English subtitles so you can understand what they are saying.
