Alexis Tsipras, leftist leader of Greece’s Syriza party, threatens…

“If they proceed with unilateral action on their side, in other words they cut off our funding, then we will be forced to stop paying our creditors, to go to a suspension in payments to our creditors.”

    Good, someone needs to tell the EU where to go. Tell them where they can stick the EU.

    A huge discussion is going on in the comment section of an article in The Financial Times. The majority think the Germans will cave in, due to 1) the possibility of it spreading to other countries like Spain and 2) the huge losses that German banks would incur (due to loans to these peripheral countries).

    Everyone seems to agree the Euro was a BAD IDEA.

        Central bankers. ECB was told to lend the money. It has loaned its entire capital to Greece. That’s why they were exempted from the haircut deal.

        Greece defaulting to the ECB takes it out, unless countries bail it out.

    A Leftie pointing out the nakedness of a Leftie construct. What’s not to like? As RedEd has been claiming a hitherto unnoticed close rapport with european socialists this week, it will be interesting to see his reaction to this statement.

    The Queen of Spain is stopped from visiting: The “Rock” question suddenly rears its head…….Why? ….. It is obvious – The Govt of is trying to divert the minds of the people from their financial crisis, Just like the Argentine govt and the Falklands…. I wonder if the people of Spain are as stupid as their counterparts in the Argentine?

A ‘senior Conservative party official’ passes judgement on Theresa May:

“She is boring. A technocrat. She is Philip Hammond with a fanny. Not interesting, but rendered interesting by circumstance. And that circumstance is that she is a woman. And in an age when the Prime Minister gets it in the neck for refusing to wear a fucking T-shirt that says he is a feminist, that is a rocket boost right underneath you.”



Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
