Sorry to move away from football for a moment but this can't pass without comment. Greece has decided to seek the views of its own population regarding the latest rescue package and associated austerity measures, and the Germans are crying foul! How dare the Greek government take into account the opinion of their electorate in a constitutional democracy? How outrageous!
So Angela Merkel isn't standing for it! The Greek Primeminister is being ORDERED to attend a crisis meeting to account for his democratic actions. Democracy in Europe? That's not to the liking of the Germans apparently!
All those who argued for Britain to join the Euro - including Blair, the entire Liberal Democratic Party and Ken Clarke - should take very careful note. How long before an army is ordered in to close down the Greek parliament to ensure that German wishes are observed?
Mind you, if the saying, "No taxation without representation" applies, perhaps that can be turned back on the Greeks who may have no right to representation given they don't pay their taxes!
This is one great unholy mess that will end in the collapse of the Euro. Then what happens? God only knows!
