Greek PM Alexis Tsipras Last Seen On A Dinghy Heading For Syria


GREEK Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras has reportedly made a break for Syria this morning in a dinghy after stepping down from his position late last night.

Seemingly unfazed by the difficult and dangerous journey ahead, a smiling Mr. Tsipras waved goodbye to a small congregation of family, friends and supporters from an undisclosed port.

“He looked so happy with himself; like a weight had been lifted off his shoulders,” said one eyewitness. “Alexis shouted something like ‘I’ll be better off in Syria. You should all get out while you all can’. Hopefully he’ll make it there alive.”

Meeting several European rescue ships full of incoming refugees on his way, crew members reported that the former Greek leader frantically waved at them to turn around and go home.

“I guess what he’s trying to say is: it’s like going from the frying pan and into the fire,” said captain Marcus Marlbeck, of the HSS Elizabeth, a British rescue ship sent to ferry endangered migrants to the shore. “He’s probably right. Most of these people we’re bringing to Greece have no idea what lies in wait for them when they get there.”

Weather permitting, Alexis Tsipras is expected to arrive safely in Syria in a couple of days.
