She was asked by the acting President of Parliament to get rid of the items… and of course she slammed him with yet another priceless comeback line “am I ruining the decor” she asked?
And then of course her rhetoric speech began about how difficult it is for citizens to make ends meet everyday, when the cost of living remains the same, while wages are being slashed and taxes are skyrocketing. The video is a must watch, as always Kanelli, who is by far one of the most popular MPs in the Greek Parliament -and one of the brightest- tells it like it really is.
She was a publisher and chief editor of the ethnocentric and anti-US monthly Nemesis. In this journal she unveiled a series of private e-mails of Margaret Papandreou in her backdoor efforts to booster her son’s, George Papandreou, bid for premiership over his in-the-party rivals. The issue of privacy has brought to public the debate of ethics in journalism, with Kanelli apparently obtaining the emails through the technique of computer hacking. Mrs Papandreou brought suit on grounds of violation of Article 19 of the Greek Constitution. The origins of this rule, ironically came into being as a consequence of the wiretapping of ministerial private conversations by the Hellenic National Intelligence Service during the Dictatorship years.
