This will be put to the test soon enough. By all indications, Tsipras 
and those in the Syriza leadership who are aligned with him have thrown 
in their lot with the parliamentary bloc made up of the New Democracy, 
PASOK and To Potami.

If and when the Left Platform breaks with this grouping, it will be up 
to them and whoever they unite with to push for a Grexit. I am 
particularly interested to see how Antarsya fares since this group is 
obviously the one that Marvin Gandall and James Creegan would want to 
belong to if they were in Greece.

Btw, Antarsya means "The Anticapitalist Left Cooperation for the 
Overthrow". The acronym is practically the same as the Greek word for 
mutiny (antarsia) according to Wikipedia. This is a group that has been 
blessed by Alex Callinicos so it will be put to the test in the months 
to come. I am fairly confident that they will never be thrust into a 
position of betraying the Greek people. In fact, I don't think that 
there has ever been such a group in the past 100 years that has been put 
in the position where they could sell out anybody or anything. Needless 
to say, this kind of freedom of sin comes at a certain cost not that 
this would make any difference to Alex Callinicos.
