i'm ranting while you call the population of greece spendthrift deadbeats?
i want a solution, and help for the greeks. yet you only want punishment.
somehow you seem to think the greek population is sitting on all your precious euros.. probably stocked below their pillows. think again.. all that money loaned went to european and greek banks, not to citizens like you and me. but yet again you think those are the people that have to repay that money.
you find it normal that greece is forced to cut in social benefits, yet are asked to honour their weapon deals(from germany)
And then you'll start ranting about responsibility again, and how you have to repay debts (just not the germans) We've been there.. so please, save yourself a heartattack and put me on your ignore list, cause your logic will never be mine.
Meanwhile guys like verhofstadt are laughing while walking to the bank.
How has austerity worked out for eurozone countries? - BBC News
Ireland, Portugal, Spain and Cyprus have all been in the same boat. However Greece was the first and its problems have been the longest lasting. The Greek government gave misleading financial information to get into the euro in the first place and then manipulated the figures to mask the extent of its deficit right up to the time when the credit crunch exposed its deep-rooted problems.
B.t.w. I was in the doctors waiting room, reading Esquire magazine (the Dutch version).
Rich Greeks complained about how their foreign bank accounts were getting limited (for withdrawals) as well. They could only cash €500 per day for each foreign bank they had an account with.
