@45RPM: "The trouble with this shocking lack of generosity...."
What a load of old cock. The Greeks cooked their books so they could get into the EU club (with the help of some major financial institution and the EU itself). Oddly enough banks don't like to lend you money if you don't/can't pay it back and you have a history of such.
It's got bugger all to do with being right wing and everything to do with not throwing money at Greece when they haven't got a snowball in hells chance of paying it back -in other words good business practice.
