The «honest compromise» is a Dishonest Negotiating Tactic

One of the neologisms of the Syriza government is “honest compromise”. It is related to the term “political solution”, which predates the Syriza administration. Both terms are typically used when Greece nears a deadline for the disbursement of an installment under the bailout program in effect at the time, and they both mean the same thing: Renegotiation of an earlier commitment.This is not an “honest compromise”; it is a dishonest negotiating tactic.
