Pretty much all of this is true. But it's worth bearing in mind that although this narrative is a convenient stick to beat the Greeks with, it's by no means the complete picture.

I think a huge chunk of the blame can also be laid at the feet of Germany & France who massively fudged (bent? outright broke?) the supposed rules for entry into the Eurozone in order to keep their grand political union on track. Hindsight is a wonderful thing, but it was a huge dollop of hubris on their part coupled with the arrant nonsense of linking an economy as comparatively underdeveloped as Greece's to the (relative) powerhouse of France and an actual global powerhouse by anyone's standards (Germany).
