A spontaneous dialogue between Greek Minister of Finance Yanis Varoufakis and a supporter of his that took place on the island of Crete after the parade for the national holiday of Greece seriously concerned the voters of SYRIZA. The woman said, "We are with you!" And he replied, "Yes, but you should be with us after the collision, shouldn’t you?" The dialogue is clearly heard at the 18th second of the video:

    What is the collision that Yanis Varoufakis is talking about? Is it Greece’s bankruptcy in the euro? Is it Greece’s exit from the euro zone? Or is it the total failure of SYRIZA to fulfil its generous campaign promises?
    In Crete, however, the Greek Minister of Finance and his wife Danae Stratou were welcomed like stars.

    The crowd was queuing and pushing to take a selfie with the popular couple. Men, women, children, old people were among those who wanted to perpetuate themselves with the financier of the proletariat and there were real scenes of popular worship.

The police even had to intervene to calm the crowd.
    Yanis Varoufakis’ appearance once again provoked comments, this time because of his extremely neat clothes - a white shirt, tucked into his trousers and tightened with a belt, and the already famous black coat with its collar turned up.
