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.”

    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?

Chris Bryant talks to the Times Diary about a famous gay actor:

“I don’t think I’ve had sex with him. He says we had sex in Clapham. I’m fairly certain I’ve never had sex south of the river”



Progressive Inclusion Champion says:

Great to hear Carswell call for inclusive policies and that UKIP must stand for first and second generation immigrants as much as the English.
