Opinion – White House urges Greece to reach agreement on bailout terms with the EU | News | DW – John Gelmini

Dr Alf asks what next.

Sadly, it is going to be crunch-time and a “weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth”.

This time the “Parochial Beadle”, in the form of Angela Merkel plus Christine Lagarde from the IMF are going to have to tell “Oliver Twist”(Greece) no more.

Despite the exhortations of the Americans, the Greeks will be thrown out of the Eurozone and out of the Euro and will have to return to the Drachma.

The rest of us will have to ring-fence ourselves against the resultant financial contagion and turmoil and let this benighted country and its perverse and duplicitous leaders solve their own problems.

Ultimately, it’s up to the Greeks to decide their destiny.
