The Greek crisis, as we're meant to call it, has changed my mind about Europe and not in a good way. I was always pro Europe before this episode, but I was always taught, any society must be judged by how it treats it's most vulnerable members and by this yardstick, Europe has come up very short.
It's not as if this has any chance of solving Greece's problems. They will still default in the end and it will surely hurt a lot more after being stretched to breaking point over and over. This was all about the lenders playing the hard guy and I'll find that very hard to forgive.
The +European Commission
should be ashamed. They've been no better than shills for the IMF and Germany. It's disgraceful.
Nigel Farage never had much impact on me, but I might well vote to leave the +European Union
after this week's sad events.
