COMFORTABLY-OFF socialists in the UK have expressed concern that Alexis Tsipras appears to live without lots of nice things.
Architect Tom Booker said: “As a lifelong fairly radical socialist I am overjoyed to see the left seize power in Greece. But why does Alexis Tsipras live in such a crummy little flat?
“I have a nice smart left-wing house, that I justify by telling myself that other people – those billionaires who are really the problem – have much larger houses.
“I mean, I am into redistribution of wealth as long as you can still have a really nice bathroom.
“I just hope the Tsipras family goes to a quality organic restaurant at least once a week and has holidays in whatever is the Greek equivalent of Center Parcs.”
