As it is the Greek people will be expected to make even more cuts.Thousands of public sector job cuts have been announced. Sooner or later there will be nothing left to cut. What will happen then? Will the richer countries of the Eurozone offer aid? After all we are sending aid by the bucket load to countries such as India and Pakistan. Surely that would show true community spirit. Offer a fresh start.
As usual it will be the poorest people of Greek society that will lose out. More job cuts are on the way. Already some Greeks have abandoned their children in the hope that will have a better life in care. Whilst the money men and women of the EU consider budget and financial implications do they spare a thought for the citizens of Greece? The people who now have an imposed leader rather than an elected one.
The German Franco alliance now hope to ensure that Greek bail out money is not paid directly to Greece. They do not want it going straight to Athens but rather to an interim bank. This way they can feed the money to Greece a little at a time. If Greece does not dance to the tune of the Franco German alliance it will not receive the rest of the money.
Of course all EU countries stand to lose a great deal if Greece defaults on its debts. However expecting the Greek people to live as paupers, for what could be the rest of their lives, should not be an option. Better to set them free to fend for themselves. Yes it would be sink or swim but isn't it going to be that anyway?
