You haven't given any options for those people who are being blamed by a lot of Greeks.

Germany
Turkey
Their parents
The EU

Oh, and also:

Greeks say arms spending partly to blame for economic troubles

Apparently their military spending budget is kept secret. And they don't practise double entry bookkeeping.

Actually I have it on good authority it is Goldman Sachs :shock: :shock:

They gave some questionable advice :roll: :roll:

Greece of course is responsible for her own woes, but that does,nt mean that she as being part of the EU should not be helped, the EU concerns us all. She should pay a high price and be accountable now to the IMF and the EU for decades BUT although some anarchists are making her look bad at the moment. Bailouts have been going on worldwide so this is no exception, the biggest problem is she 'cooked the books'.

She has got to turn it all around, corruption and tax evasion and fat cat pensions will soon be a thing of the past. EU taxpayers won,t stand for anymore countries not behaving like they have to.

Its going to be hard though, some countries like Ireland have,nt asked for handouts and are finding things very tough.

More maybe to come, but tax evaders, corruption and nepotism are responsible, from the top down. Makes a country fall every time.

Ireland has had to institute some very tough austerity measures. The Irish haven't taken to the streets and tried to destroy their own country though. And they insisted on managing without going cap in hand to the dreaded IMF.

You can add another option now:

Cost of hosting the Olympic Games.

Absolutely loved the Olympics!

This is where I was seated at the opening Ceremony.

This was me about 1 hour before the pre Opening Ceremony Party.

I had my Greek Flag with me as well! :D

Awesome Show! :D

I thought I will highjack this thread, since it is a load of bollocks to post more Athens 2004 piccies! :D

Folks, I know you can't contain yourselves, and want to see more piccies, but you will just have to have some patience! :D

The Athens 2004 Olympic Games was a glorious chapter in Greece's History and being a part of it was an experience I will never forget!

More to follow! :D

BTW folks, just because you only see that I was carrying a Greek Flag I will like to point out that I had a Cypriot Flag as well!

Usually, I like to Free Ball. In the UK, you call this "Going Commando"! It is just more comfortable that way.

But since I couldn't get a RoC Flag in time, and seeing that this was a very special occasion, I decided to wear my Austin Powers RoC Flag Boxers.

So there you have it ladies and gents. I did my patriotic duty! :D
