Are you a linguist or a politician?

A conversa - 'We Don't Want to Go on Borrowing Forever' – chega a ser bastante dura, como se pode avaliar por este pequeno extracto:
SPIEGEL: Are you a linguist or a politician? You told the Greeks that you got rid of the troika and sold it as a victory. But the European Commission, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the European Central Bank (ECB) are still monitoring your reforms. Now, they are simply called "the institutions."
Tsipras: No, it isn't a question of terminology. It has to do with the core of the issue. Every country in Europe has to work together with these institutions. But that is something very different than a troika that is beholden to nobody. Its officials came to Greece to strictly monitor us. Now, we are again speaking directly with the institutions. Europe has become more democratic because of this change.

SPIEGEL: What change? You still have to submit your reform plans to three "institutions" for approval.
Tsipras: The reforms won't be approved by the institutions. They have a say in the process and establish a framework that applies to all in
Europe. (Interview Conducted By Manfred Ertel, Katrin Kuntz and Mathieu von Rohr)
