Meanwhile, in the EU

Greeks are, rightfully, going mad! Because of the austerity measures, Greeks have become as anti-German as this: Nazi-Merkel. I thought the EU was supposed to be a political union as well as economic. I cannot see the political unity in calling a fellow EU member a Nazi.

Today, Athenians went nuts yet again due to freshly proposed austerity measures, amongst them cutting back public pension, and the riot police walked the streets once more. There seems not to be a hint of unity between the Greek people and the European Union anymore. When Greece leaves the Euro, the only question is whether any other countries will follow suit or not. And whether the Euro can take the hit and still exist. But in its current form, it's a done deal.
