    No peace inside the Eurozone for Greece

    The unresolved Greek debt crisis has flared up again pitting the IMF against the German-led EU. Greece can never recover until it quits a single curreny that is out of kilter with its fundamentals. But La La Land Eurocrats will destroy Greece altogether before admittimg they are wrong

    Greece is the sacrificial lamb of the EU once again

    Now that Angela Merkel and the European Commission have created the mother of all crises over refugees, they're out to punish Greece, making the country the sacrifical lamb for their own incompetence. Let's get Britain out of this mess as soon as possible

    Greece’s painful and irresponsible bail out

    Greece has now got a worse deal than it originally opposed. Let's be clear. It's their fault for wanting to be in a failed single currency. But it's also Germany and Brussel's fault for living in fantasy land. It's all a very European mess, and it's not going away

    Has the Troika destroyed Greece?

    In recent days and weeks, we have seen the financial and political elite of Europe humiliate Greece. The country is being destroyed before our eyes. The Greeks feel trapped, with nowhere else to go. But Britain is not trapped, and we must get out of the EU before it's too late

    Greece, Germany, and a real-world version of Atlas Shrugged

    Who knew the Germans were Randians? The Europe crisis in general. and the acrimonious debate in Greece and Germany now sounds like it was pulled from Atlas Shrugged

    EU bankrupts Greek parliamentary democracy

    The EU has turned Greece into little more than a protectorate. From Brussels to Athens and back again, the economic plans for growth are chaotic at best, fantasy at worst. To cap it all, the EU has effectively bankrupted Greek parliamentary democracy. Whatever next?

    EU tyranny finally crushes the birthplace of democracy

    The big lesson the EU has "learned" from the Greek crisis is that the democratic will of the people must be suppressed even further. As Brussels crushes democracy in its birthplace, the seeds of a neo-authoritarian superstate have been definitevely sown

    Haven’t the Greeks suffered enough?

    As the fiasco continues over Greece, and the whole modern European project it is fair to say the Greeks brought some of their crisis on themselves, but haven't they suffered enough already? They're being advised by the French on economic policy! Heaven help them...

    Of Euro Merkel and German Merkel

    Angela Merkel is locked in a kind of political-psychological conflict. There's Euro Merkel, with all the false idealism that entails, and there's German Merkel who has had enough of funding a failed on-size fits all project regarding Greece. What's really missing here is sanity and common sense

    Greek Eurofudge threatens to detonate a bankrupt new order

    As Syriza's success in Greece shows, Marxists, of a kind, are making a comeback in Europe. Along with far-Right populists they are taking advantage of paralysis in the contemporary European project. A new and bankrupt order could now follow

    Greece's brave choice -- “OXI” to the tyrannical EU

    We in Britain will soon be facing our In/Out referendum. Let the Greeks inspire us to fight to get Britain out of the tyrannical EU

    Greece: Author of democracy rejects EU neo-authoritarianism

    Rejoice! Greece is re-invented as the great author and supporter of democracy, as the Greeks say NO to the neo-authoritarian ambitions of Brussels. They've burnt the deep integrationist EU project at the stake. But the failed, anti-intellectual bigots in Brussels will now exact a very cruel price

    Does Greece hold up the image of America's future?

    We've all heard of Grexit -- Greece quits the euro; catastrophe theory needs to be rethought. But what about Amexit: the United States quits the real world be emulating the very worst of European fantasy economics? If only, under Obama, that really was fantasy...

    The death of democracy in Greece?

    The reality must surely be dawning on even the most blinkered of Europhiles that the modern European project is incompatible with democracy. Ironically, it is the country that invented the very word democracy that is seeing its freedom most visibly destroyed

    Chattering classes miss point on Greece, EU

    The plain truth is that this is not about saving Greece; it’s about saving the Eurozone. Brussels is terrified that Grexit might start a Club Med stampede for the exit. Monetary union has been a catastrophic failure, and we are witnessing its death agonies
