    You have to have some sympathy for them

    Being forced to to endure draconian cuts in order to borrow more money from Germany in order to pay Germany back rather than to actually do anything that helps them with it.

    Didn’t the Germans ‘borrow’ most of the Bank Of Greece’s funds the last time they ruled Europe and failed to pay it back? πŸ™‚

    Wow !, thats some form of selective memory you have on you.

    Obviously you over looked the plush double job thingy, no one paying their taxes, etc.

    But lets not get bogged down in the details….

    After all, who doesn’t like the idea of hating the bankers.

    And I’m still waiting for my bail-out. I got into the doo-doo in 2009 and nobody bailed me out.
    Instead, I’ve had to bail the banks out.

    Its all just a game, based on most of us, the masses. Lossing.
    So, get use to it.

    Good to see they’ve taken the right approach though.

    It’s a well known fact that setting fire to things is guaranteed to resolve every problem in the world today.

    If Europe burns enough cars and buildings, African famine will end.
    Extensive looting and stealing will end global child slavery.

    If we’re serious about improving things we need to be starting more fires and looting more TVs.

    You realise that more Greek debt is held by France than Germany, and even then the amount of Greek debt held by the private financial sector is about double held by nations?

    Have you ever been to Athens? Its a shit hole of the highest order.
    Let the rioters raze it, the subsequent building boom will help the defecit, and we’ll end up with a nicer city break destination. What’s not to like?

    err it wasn’t from memery πŸ™‚

    I was more thinking of it from a young Greek’s mind
    sort of – “what’s my motivation here”

    It’s tough to see what’s in it for them Vs just letting the default happen now [rather than later]

    Ah, Motivation I like this subject.
    One of, if not the largest influence on a person’s behaviour.

    As for said young greecian with bottles and petrol.
    Well, as they say, shyte rolls down hill.
    He may not have had two jobs and bribed the tax official into not collecting taxes.
    Which then may have lead to the Greek Gov having to bridge the gap between spending and revenue, with a loan.

    But it must have obviously upset him.
    Unless he works for rent-a-rioter.

    Obviously they’re not entirely happy and I don’t blame them for that. Nor do I blame them for rioting, it gives the disenfranchised something to do and the police a good workout. Had to laugh that the govt are summarily sacking any politicians who don’t vote in favour of the measures!
    What I don’t understand is; what would the rioters rather the govt do? Spend their way out of trouble? πŸ™‚

    what would the rioters rather the govt do?

    I suspect they’d rather default and drop out of the Euro

    On a more serious note, I didn’t notice the sandy coloured dog that seems to have been leading most of the rioting so far
    I didn’t see it yesterday – is it OK? πŸ™‚

    my Greek father in law to be says the euro is the worst thing that’s ever happened to Greece.

    how bad would a subsequent further Greek default be for the UK?
