Well worth it when set against the long-term economic stability that EZ membership has brought.

Military trucks and petrol company vehicles were employed yesterday to alleviate a fuel shortage as more 30,000 lorry and tanker truck operators ignored a government order to return to work on pain of prosecution Good for them.

Lorry drivers should stay out until we see or they demand that some banksters and politicians are put in Jail . They have more guts than the British any day. We are a shower of wimps. The miners were the last to stand up for their position and boy have we suffered since then. I am going to Greece on holiday to spend money and support the Greeks !!

The British have become unquestioning, docile workers. Just what the capitalist class wanted and engineered during the 1980s after breaking the unions (labour power.)

Are there any Face book groups we can join to show support for the Greeks?

Bit of a dichotomy between the first and second sentences.

The questioning and undocile don't join groups, they start them.

Hang on JUST ONE MINUTE!! I thought the EZ banks all passed the stress tests with flying colours and that there is no financial crisis in the EU? :blink:

Are you saying that the Guardian is suggesting there may be repercussions from the SDC? And that maybe this week will be different from the euphoria of last week. The headless chicken is still moving.

I love it when people use the phrase "war zone", there was an episode of "Down the Line" where every third call was along the lines of "Sergeant Brown from the Mercia police force has called in to say that the centre of Solihull on a Friday night is like a war zone.".

Asda supermarket, 5.30pm on a Friday, now there's a real war zone.

And the Greeks will greet you, and take your money, and sit on their fat asses and do nothing as they always do.

Sergeant Brown should stick to worrying about his own patch and keep his nose out of neighbouring authorities.

fear wave of terror as austerity programme provokes strikes, protests, violence

Sounds like Eastbourne in the early 70s when coffee & sugar were not on the supermarket shelves every moment of the day.

there's been no pain here.

Society has become "benefitized" and thus getting govt freebies is normal and bailing bankrupt banks

is just one of those things

Once the "drugs" are removed we'll see the "crack" addicts jumping around , and those recovered ,from

their addiction will demand help understanding compassion ignoring the fact they " lived it up large" on the

hock.

The Greek population engage in tax evasion on a biblical scale.... it's a bit late to start protesting now.... perhaps a bit more honesty on the old tax return is a better course of action in the future.

They were only bothered about the German one's obviously.

They exported the coming bloodletting to the streets of Athens.

have the rich ever paid the % of taxes that they should have in the UK ? I think not. They employ hoards of shady creative accountants to do the work so that they can appear clean.

Well they're going to have to clean a lot of dishes for pay for their 10yr long free lunch!

I agree! We need to be more critical of ourselves and not deflect our problems on to others, the great British spin machine is very good at that. When our government comes out with "we are in a much better situation to come out of this than other economies " What economies was Brown talking about ?

Where a bit more honesty would really have helped, was in the implementation of the Maastricht treaty. There needed to be less self-deceit among the architects and promoters of the project in general, and less fraud surrounding the assessment of convergence criteria in particular. The fact that endemic Greek tax-evasion is only NOW drawing so much comment, shows that convergence never existed except on a (falsified) check-list in Brussels.

Yet more left-wing murderousness and rabble rousing. Greece is particularly prone to periodic outbursts of it.

But of course, it is only right wingers who are 'nasty'. The left are 'justified' in breaking a few eggs to make an oh-so-righteous omelette whenever it suits them.

It was common knowledge that they were all selling of the family silver to make their books look good, Italy in particular. They have nothing to sell now and so the truth must come out. We sold everything too , Thatcher started it and now we have five eighths of heff all left. Its the people that now have to suffer and the politicians just grow richer by the hour. We should bring the whole charade down !
