Dr Alf is right. Varoufakis should never have been chosen for creditor negotiations in the first place. His statements during the early stages of his appointment were not credible.

Replacing him with someone more capable and sensible is a good move but the fundamental fact is that Greece has a long and consistently questionable international financial record. Also by international standards, Greece needs to reform to help it back to prosperity.

It is time for real political leadership in Greece and at the same time helping Greek people to be more competitive in the World. Greece has a long and proud history  – it must learn from the likes of China and adapt.
