Opinion – Greece will no longer deal with ‘troika’, Yanis Varoufakis says – FT.com – John Gelmini

I watched this overconfident and duplicitous man being interviewed by Channel 4 television yesterday and in the course of that interview he did not answer a single question truthfully or at all.

Dr Alf talks about risk analysis, yet what we already know about Greece is their record of not wanting to pay taxes, anarchic behavior, corruption, laziness and a viewpoint that says that everyone else owes the country a living. We know too about the skullduggery of certain leading Greek families who bled the country dry the last time. Deal after deal, contract after contract to repay debt and reschedule it has been repudiated. Yet we are all expected to absolve the Greeks of all blame for their own actions, pay homage to this sorry excuse for a finance minister and pay up. Why?

Varoufakis says he isn’t going to deal with the Troika. I say, let him have his wish and cut him and his benighted country loose out of the EU and out of the Euro.

However, I would not just “write off ” their debts. I would propose seizing and sequestering their banks and major infrastructure, until they had made orderly repayments to my satisfaction. Sadly, our ‘so-called’ leaders will allow themselves to be conned and then saddle the rest of us with the bill.

  1. I really cannot be more in agreement. It seems the Greeks and most left wing political parties seem to think they are owed a living and that some one else ( except them ) should pay for their profligacy, corruption and often downright dishonesty.
