Greek PM’s address to European Parliament disappointing – Clune

The Greek Prime Minister missed a golden
opportunity to outline the reform proposals he’s promising to implement in
Greece. That’s the view of the Fine Gael MEP Deirdre Clune who followed Alexis Tsipras’s
address to MEPs in the European Parliament this morning. Mr Tsipras was
criticised by some leading MEPs for his failure to tell them more precise
details of his plans to implement reforms of the likes of tax collection,
health care and pensions. The President of the European Council, Donald Tusk
told MEPs that there are only four days left to reach an ultimate agreement on
Greece. Here’s Deirdre Clune.
