Watching developments in Britain, my mind goes back to the near-fatal and certainly costly Greek summer of 2015. The turmoil surrounding the bailout referendum called by the leftist-led administration of Alexis Tsipras now feels like a distant memory, or rather like a nightmare one would rather forget.
Hours after conservative Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis announced that Greece will soon remove the last remaining capital controls imposed on bank depositors at the height of the financial crisis, former finance minister Euclid Tsakalotos accused the government of piggybacking on his administration's efforts to lift restrictions.
By all accounts the Mitsotakis administration had the best start of any Greek government in recent decades.
From the very beginning it acted swiftly and decisively, exploiting the positive expectations that were cultivated during the electoral campaign.
The prime minister is already making his mark through laborious nationwide efforts.
