I fear that the EU's intransigence could destroy not only the Greek economy but also their democracy. It is not that long ago that they were ruled by a military junta. Since then they have had problems with governance, and now the people are being punished for the failures of their leaders.

The Greek people's main fault seems to be that they were desperate to be seen as proper Europeans, and blindly joining the Eurozone when they quite clearly were not qualified to do so, and being permitted to do so by the Brussels bureaucrats, is the immediate cause of their present problems. A little more acceptance by those bureaucrats of their culpability would be welcome.

It is not that Greece "deserves to be hooved out of the Euro" as the whole Euro project deserves to be dismantled, as it can never work successfully without financial union, which effectively means political union - and there is little sign that the peoples of the Eurozone want that.
