Ninety Minutes To Go

Even when things are taken to the brink there must be a reckoning, and there's every chance that things go over the edge.

Been following developments all day
It appears at the moment that Greece is going to default but that imo does not mean that Greece will be forced to exit the EZ
I get the feeling that the EZ Countries, Germany in particular are quite happy now for the Greek govt to take it to referendum as they expect the Greek people to vote yes and this would put the Tsipras govt in position whereby he (Tsipras) would have to resign and they would then re enter negotiations with a more amenable Greek president

Just my thoughts on the issue

Tsipras’ election to office has well and truly screwed Greece.

Had they been re-elected the former Greek government would’ve gone along with their loan obligations a long time ago when it was still viable to do so, and Greece would’ve been on the road to recovery by now much like Cyprus.

Unfortunately, the Greek people (as per usual) voted with their misled hearts instead of their heads and went for the very young and inexperienced “Che Guevara” who made empty promises of “justice for the downtrodden Greeks” and lots of other hollow nationalist mantra in the hope of a magic revolutionary wand.

It seems that the Greek people actually believed that there was a way to evade creditors altogether, or at worse defer them for a few centuries so that they could go back to their lives and not worry again and all that was necessary to achieve this was for a brave “Che Guevara” to walk into the EU offices bang his fist on the table and demand the “nice and relaxed” option! :roll:

The Greek people hadn’t realized all along that justice was already in Greece in the form of foreign loans to cover for the many years Greek government squandering.

Now unfortunately Che Guevara has used up what precious time Greece had to solve the problem and there’s nothing but darkness lying ahead for Greece.

No doubt the young fool meant well but he was the worst thing that could’ve happened to Greece at Greece’s worst possible moment.

The trick is to not allow yourself to get there in the first place! Live by your means.

60 minutes to go...!!!

Yes, difficult circumstances need difficult decisions by leaders who lead.

What have we seen for months...??

Weak and amateurish government.

... Alongside Popularism on the one side and Ugly Nationalism on the other, with the sensible middle squeezed in to silence.

This will be messy, and it won't be the Ugly Nationists who will be paying.
