As Benjamin says in Animal Farm when Boxer is carted away in the van, supposedly heading for the doctors, "Fools, fools, fools! Can't you see what's written on the side of that van? They are taking Greece to the knackers!"
All it needed was one phone call through to Russian President Putin. "Hello, it is the Finance Minister of Greece here. Okay, when you've finished laughing, have you realised that now the Czech Republic have scored, Russia are heading out of the European Championship? Now I have a little proposition for you. Fifty five billion and we will let you equalise."
Hang on, I've just found out that they tried, but nobody in Greece could cobble together enough Euros to pay for the bloody phone call!
