It’s all Greek to me

I confess I am at little at sea when it comes to the shenanigans in Greece.

I have tried to follow it and have at times rubbed my hands in glee.

I watched in fascination as the EU tried "negotiate" the situation with the Greek government, where "negotiation" is defined as "do as Brussels says".  Their way is The Right Way and brooks no argument.

I watched with delight when Greece introduced an idea into the negotiations that utterly baffled the EU as it was an unheard of concept in their books, namely "democracy".  "Democracy" according to Brussels is telling the people to do what Brussels wants, and the plain people just aren't relevant.  The idea of asking the plain people in a referendum is a complete anathema.

I watched with disgust as the Irish contingent frantically licked arse as they told the Greeks to behave like the good little Irish did. 

So what now?

Well, the banks are shut and it looks likely that Greece is out of the Euro.  Lucky bastards.  If nothing else it is a massive crack in the whole concept of a United States of Europe.  The EU's wet dream is becoming a bit of a nightmare.

What interests me is the possibility that the new currency will be the Greek Rouble.  If Russia steps in to lend the Greeks a few bob, that is going to cause massive headaches both in Brussels and Washington.  I somehow doubt that either of them would welcome a Russian ally right in the heart of Europe?

I presume that Brussels will have to do something to prevent the Euro collapsing and the ony way I can see that happening is for Brussels to pay off the IMF and the Greek bondholders.  More billions being handed to gamblers.

So having footed the bill for Irish bondholders, it looks like we will have another massive bill on our hands?

It's worth it though just to see Brussels squirm.

    • Simple.  The United States of America has the Dollar, so the United States of Europe has the Euro.  It's all part of the grand plan to lock us into their Fourth Reich.

  1. if the new currency is Rouble, then the Greeks should be all set. With all of those old buildings and temples falling apart there is plenty of Rouble just laying around. 

  2. Oh, I’m so glad I’m not the only confused one!  I do still suspect that the EU will pull something out of the bag at the eleventh hour, just out of sheer cussedness to stop those naughty, rebellious Greeks from escaping their clutches.  I mean, can you imagine? Allowing one of “their” captive States to escape and decide their own destiny? Unthinkable!  No, no.  Greece must be kept in, so that they can be economically punished for all time for daring to square up to The Bosses.  And – even more unthinkable – just imagine what would happen if Greece were to leave and were actually able to gradually recover their shattered economy?? The EU would be rumbled! Rumbled, I tell you!  The whole plan of making all their member states entirely dependent upon them (and their gracious goodwill) by gradually destroying their economies, inch by tiny inch, would be laid bare for all to see.  And then everyone would want to leave.  And we couldn’t have that, now, could we?

     

    I’m just sorry that the UK didn’t manage to bring the whole edifice crumbling down by pulling out of this daft EU game a long, long time ago.  It would have been nice for us to get the credit instead of Greece.  But, hey ho – if Greece has the guts that we haven’t, then so be it.  Any port in a storm and all that …

  3. I was going to write something rather ridiculous about the whole situation which would have involved the US, Cuba, Greece, 52 States, the US dollar, Russia and Brussels having all out seizures and other such nonsense, but I finally thought better of it. Good thing too as I'm certain I would have been much maligned about it.
