Greece? Y u no pay ur billz? Greece pls. :tears:

Greferendum coming soon, will there be a Grexit? I thought there would be a thread on this whole saga but I can't find any.

Explain what's going on and the ramifications. I've been following it, but I don't know the history of the EU, and I assume they'll just keep funding them?

They'll keep funding them and even take down some of the debt, once the ruling party is down, over and guaranteed to never come back.

Clear sign to all the other European countries and citizen that populism is not welcome in the EU.

Reforms will be made though, heavy ones, party's over, time to pay the bill.

I heard they were retiring at 50 and not paying their taxes!!
dunno bout that, yet it's probably close to reality. what is for sure - they've been spending way more than they made for years and they don't want to stop.

They owe huge amounts of money and they want to keep living the same way, generating more debt, which is obviously not possible, but they don't care.

But they soon will.

I hope this serves as a great example for the rest about how important it is to vote on parliamentary elections.

Coz now there will be high numbers of voters (i expect over 75%) and there will be an very loud Yes to the Euro and Europe,

Question is - where was this yes during the last elections?

Some 20-30 whatever percents of the people elected this bunch of populists who care about themselves only. They knew there was absolutely no other way to deal with the situation Greece's been put by too much socialism over the years, but they lied they will fix it without paying, without reforms.

Loud and clear example for every country in Europe.

This is BS and not true for the most part. What do you say? To vote for extreme right wing and impose ridiculous austerity measures which are proven to not work. Thanks but no thanks.

Germans and IMF are artificially creating this particular crisis today when there is none. Greece is owed by ECB more than he has to pay now for this deadline, but IMF and German bureaucrats are refusing to honor this.

Just a small example what king of games are played here.

You are the one with BS. It worked in Ireland. Portugal and Spain. It was hard, damm hard. Maybe it didnt needed to be this hard, and there maybe i agree with you but something needed to be done.

If you spend money you dont have shit happens.

The greeks have a bad habit of this. Why does a hospital need 50 gardners? To cut the grass right? But this specific hospital doesnt have and grass or trees or even a garden. So what were they doing there all those years?

Plus they need to tax the rich more. The shipping industry doesnt pay taxes.

There is a tax on pools. But few people declare them. So i dont recall which goverment minister went to google earth to check how many pools Athens had. It had alot more then those who declared.


Point is they have bad habits and its going to be hard to make them take a step back.

I heard it several years ago, 2012 i think. There are other cases of wide spread corruption. They have been use to it since forever they dont see it like the rest of the world.

You retire you have a pension right? If you die here your spouse gets 50% of that pension while shes alive. There she gets the full 100%.

Here when she dies it ends. There it use to passe to the next generation. Dont know if they changed it or not.


Im not against the greeks. The have been sufering for along time, but they have been doing this crap forever.
