    THE GREAT BIG FAT GREEK THREAD

    I hope they make a clear break, default and move on. The funny bit will be post-mess, when things get better and they show the rest of Club Med it's not so bad out of it.

    The reality about Germany is that they're always either at your knees or your throat.

    They won't have a problem borrowing if their gearing is 0%

    Offer what you can, creditors can take it or leave it.I guess if it means the ECB won't lend them more in the future that's a price they'll have to pay

    Leave the euro and pay it off in Monopoly money.

    Provisional wording for next weeks Greek referendum just in from Brussels:"Do you wish to embrace the generous offer from your European friends and reject the destructive actions of the discredited Tsipras? Yes, I want to accept their kind offer No, I will not tolerate the vandalism of Syrizia"

    This is an outrageous abuse of democracy and must be repeated until they produce the correct result, in line with established European democratic principles.

    Unsurprisingly, the 29bn is a no-go. It was only a way for the Greeks to look to their people like they were still trying anyway. Pass the popcorn!
  10. Much of this is fair comment, but it ignores the fact that NuLab had succeeded in making it politically impossible not to endorse the spending frenzy, at least to say so anyway. Certainly given the Tories had been totally characterised as baby-eating fiends.It's easy to forget the ridiculous atmosphere Brown created with his abolition of boom and bust, Golden Rule ********, and general creation of the client State.
  11. Nonetheless, as a cash injection it reduces debt.

    Exit Poll Shows Tories On 316, 10 Short Of Majority

    A few people have asked me about what Maths websites I referred to. I've pm' them but in case I don't see further questions here's the message I've sent: "There are two I've found. http://www.examsolutions.net This one is comprehensive and brilliant. He covers every topic right up to Further Maths level, as well as providing past paper worked answers. His explanations are brilliant and my daughter in particular has benefited enormously. The second is here http://betterexplained.com This guy operates on a different tack; he focuses on teaching intuitive understanding, and is clearly enormously bright. He goes up to a very high level. I did Maths as a young man and was conventionally well taught, but together these are far superior. Supported by access to a tutor group I wouldn't hesitate to recommend learning maths just through these resources. If you're interested in Maths yourself, dip in. I tried the Complex Numbers section of Further Maths in the latter site and the clarity was a million miles beyond my schooling, it became childishly easy."

    What Now?

    At what point will predictions of imminent crash stop sounding wise? I registered on here in 2008, so late to the party, and the predictions were already long standing. Low interest rates are settled in for a long time; the country still offers political stability to foreign money and Lindon isn't getting much bigger. I'd be very surprised if such a thing happened in the near future.

    Yeah, because finance wasn't regulated at all. :picard:Course, that's overlooking that the legitimisation is what kept frauds out of jail and sanctioned the moral hazard of endless bailouts. Some kind of free market.
