Well it's friggin true RH.

We got the EU handing out this report and that report but I haven't seen Greece get a lot of assistance from them.

They have had volunteer nurses and doctors from other countries around the world who usually self fund themselves or are funded by charity, but Germany and UK in particular have gone AWOL.

Tsipras should send them a report!


They had the opportunity to change things and blew it ....... they got rid of Varoufakis! He was the only one who understood the money/banking system for what it is and was well aware they were being stitched up. The Greek people are getting what the asked for! Sorry, but that is the sad reality. :(

That you have not seen it, is not in and off itself evidence that such does not exist.

Greece chose to be a member of schengen, wanted to be a member, would appear to want to remain a member and the

I don't think that Greece is particularly worried and Schengen wouldn't even dare.

Making stupid insinuations just makes them a laughing stock when the got bits and pieces in the media labeling Syrians as this or that or even serial rapists.

I doubt Greece chose to be a member of Schengen. They forced Greece into it is more like it. Doesn't sound credible to me to force countries like Greece to join and then threaten them. Well, go right ahead then. Kick Greece out! So what!

Cyprus is apparently obligated to join to but has not done so.

I agree that being in or out of Schengen is not that big of a 'deal' for Greece. Being out might inconvenience some Greeks and some non Greek that regularly travel to and from Greece to some small degree. I do think if (and it is still a massive if) Greece is suspended from Schengen that such would be quite a big deal for Schengen and for the 'European project' in general.

As you say, they will never kick Greece out.

If they did, international public opinion will bight them in the arse because one thing is for certain, Greece has been getting the best press around the world about the way it has managed to handle this crisis in difficult circumstances. And yes, if you have to pick some countries that are great examples to the rest of the world regarding this issue, then Greece will be one of the top pics and that says a lot about Greece. Desmond Tutu is right.

Your point is? Greece is a democracy, and please don't bullshit me that there isn't much worse in the UK and France.

The other side of Britain.

Yes Indeed - other countries do have problems with acceptance of immigrants and Britain is in indeed one of the worst: I have no delusions on that point.

I think he is trying to tell you that what's been praised is not Greece per se but the all humane attitude of the islanders.

You mean the typical attitude of ordinary Greeks? No Greek would have thought what these islanders did was special. Most, the majority of Greeks, would show the same philoxenia. It's outsiders that have been overwhelmed by this simple show of humanity in a sea of Eurocentric ill-will against the arrival of migrants.

And let's not forget, these are the same people who are being punished by the austerity measures of Merkel et al., for supposedly being evil, lazy, good for nothing tax-dodging Greeks.
