From the first article:
The central strategy of this government, in alliance with the EU and IMF, has been repayment of the debt and concentrating all government effort and resources to this end.
But the wheels are now coming off the wagon. Economic growth is far off its target as the global recession deepens. Cuts in public spending cannot cover the massive shortfall. There is a limit to the extent to which they can plunder the wage packets of workers and pensions and remove medical support for the sick.
