Speaking ahead of talks today with eurozone chief Jean-Claude Juncker, Greek PM Antonio Antonis Samaras tells De Bild that his country needs "air to breathe" to spark the economy back into life. Samaras is looking for an extension to budget cuts, which, the FT reports, will be greater than expected due to falling tax revenues and increased social security contributions.

    Greece will lie, cheat and steal from Northern Europe for as long as it can and when no more than be extracted it will abandon the Euro and default on all public debts, while smirking its way to expulsion from the EU.

     

    Of course, it will blame Germany and accept no responsibility for its economic crimes.

    Greece sounds like one of my rental tenants.

    I still see this as ' robbing Peter to pay Paul '. Now they are talking about bringing payments forward. It just seems to be a method of trying to keep Greece within the Euro so as not to destabilize the rest of Europe. If this is the case, then they will say that they have to do whatever is necessary - if not - then why. But I have to say - I do have to agree with User 353732.

    Greece has got Europe by the nads and are playing the game pretty well.

    California undoubtedly is taking notes from Greece and perhaps Illinois too because these 2 are the next Spain and Greece.

    Don't worry. You can trust the "$DRUG" addict when they said they will pay you back.
