Greece, or no Greece

Right. From a Greek point of view, what's the absolute worst that can happen?

a. Be cut loose from the Euro and start again.
b. Become an even bigger prostitue of Brussels for ever more.

I say from a Greek point of view because everything seems to based upon, what's best for the Union and single currency...

Sell off some of their islands and hope that the Germans have more hard cash than the Turks at the auction.

They will have to default anyway. If not immediately (arguably they have partially), next week when they fail to make enough austerity cuts or some-time next year when the latest loan runs out.

No point lending them more money if they can't afford repayments on the existing loans. Its throwing more good money after bad. Greece has always been a financial risk, and is now a total basket case. It should never have been allowed into the Euro in the first place. Let the country fall out of the Euro, and risk the impact on the rest of the Euro countries. if we bail it out we are just putting off the evil day when they finally do collapse with even higher debts, risking even further damage when they eventually do collapse.
Best take the hit now.

Back in the eighties, I, like many others on this site no doubt, spent my two weeks summer holidays, tanning my pasty white skin to a nice lobster hue on the beaches of Corfu, Kos and Crete. It was nearly as cheap as Spain but without the 'English Breakfast sold here' signs. Checking prices earlier this year, for me and my family, a holiday in Turkey was about £1000 cheaper than a comparative holiday in Greece. They can't compete against Turkey while stuck with the Euro. They should default, get back to the Drachma, de-value and start flogging cheap holidays again.

Who cares? Greece doesn't matter to me in the least.
As long as Cameron keeps his word (ha ****ing ha) and doesn't spend any of my money propping Greece up my interest ends there.

Didn't we increase the funds we have on deposit with the IMF by £9Bn or so recently? Its IMF money that will get used to bail the Greeks out of this catastrophe.

We need to have a serious word with CMD. Greece should not be supported and more and certainly not by the UK. When Greece finally goes to the dogs, what will we be left with?

I'll tell 'ee:

Reasonable wine at knock down prices.

Olives, if you like em, dead cheap.

Holidays at pre Cold War prices.

Stunning birds falling over themselves to suck your cock for a fiver.

Ditto birds with mustaches... etc.

Ditto birds with the hairiest of pussies ..... etc.

Waiters you can abuse with impunity.

That'll do for now.

Heard Megan Greene, economist on the tv this evening and reading between her very eloquent explanation of the Greek debt situation it seems whatever happens:

1/ EU keep lending Greece money;
2/ EU stops lending Greece money;
3/ Greece leaves the euro, reintroduces the drachma and devalues; and
4/ The domino effect starts.

It seems our British banks have all their fingers in the Greek pie -- we are fcuked.

Actually, gravity, and the magnetic forces of the universe make the world go round. The Earths weather actually distorts the shape of the Earth also, causing it to "wobble".

No wonder you thick donkey ****ing inbreds are backwards. I bet you think that the earth is still flat.
