I think that Greece is now so dependent on bailouts that they are almost a third world economy. They will look at any monetary help from Europe as an excuse to keep on spending.

Time for Europe to call a halt to bailouts. If the Euro collapses as a result then they can put it down to experience and France can resort to the Franc, Germany to the Mark, Spain to the Peseta and Ireland to the Punt as their respective monetary units.

Thank god, the UK never signed up to join the Eurozone countries.

Kenneth Clarke was adamant that we should join...and now thinks we should release murderers and rapists after serving half their sentences.

Luckily those with more power than him have decided otherwise.It's about time he retired and took his stupid ideas with him.

He was a good chancellor under Major. Appears to have lost it these days though. Bit like Maggie, made sense to start with, then lost it.

May be he's just peed off that Osborne/ Peirs Fletcher Dervish got his old job.

Anyway, if Greece ceased to exist tomorrow, what do they produce that the world would miss. Apart from kebabs and Nana Maskouri records

Give them no more funny money and let them default on the current funny money loans and lets see how long they survive.
After all the paper agreements they recieve in monetary funding is mostly conjured up by greedy bankers in other countries who already are being bailed out by taxpayers in their host countries.
It can't be sustained.

José Manuel Barroso insists "Greece will 'never' be allowed to go bankrupt".
Which of course translates to "meaningless rhetoric" by a lying politician.

Instead of worrying about Greece - think about the UK. We borrow more each year, year in year out than the Greek bailouts. We are credit junkies that just can't give it up. We are going bust just as surely as Greece is.
