Beyond North vs. South

"The difference between 'involvement' and 'commitment' is like an eggs-and-ham breakfast: the chicken was 'involved' - the pig was 'committed'. We know the north was involved in this crisis but let's be, in the south, really committed for a bright and progressive future!"

João Ribeiro, International Secretary of the Socialist Party (P.S.), Portugal.
