Dear Greece: F**k You

No matter what they propose, it is never good enough for Austerities fiscal hawks

But the German finance minister, Wolfgang Schäuble, dismissed that view, supported by a number of northern and eastern European states. “These proposals cannot build the basis for a completely new, three-year [bailout] programme, as requested by Greece,” said a German finance ministry paper. It called for Greece to be expelled from the eurozone for a minimum of five years and demanded that the Greek government transfer €50bn of state assets to an outside agency for sell-off.

State assets to be sold off? No doubt at knockdown prices. Git your Parthenon here, buy one get one free.

“The hawks are very vocal,” said an EU diplomat. “It’s very tough.” Berlin also demanded stronger and more intrusive powers for outside monitors to police the economic and fiscal reforms that Alexis Tsipras, the leftist Greek prime minister, would need to commit to to secure the new bailout.

Howya doin, nice country you had there, shame something happened to it.

The widening gulf between eurozone hawks and doves paves the way for an acrimonious summit on Sunday, with France and Italy lining up against Germany and the northern and eastern Europeans. Matteo Renzi, the Italian prime minister, is expected to tell chancellor Angela Merkel that enough is enough and that Greece should not have to put up with any more humiliation.

Dear France and Italy, you're next.

On Thursday, Tsipras performed a remarkable U-turn and accepted more austerity measures than had been rejected in the referendum he called for five days earlier. The prompt volte-face confounded negotiators.

Not enough Dear Greece, you complained and we will make you pay for that.

Greece should tell them to fuck off, and leave the Euro. Nothing they do, no amount of suffering will satiate the Austerity hawks. The same Austerity that has thrown so many young people on the sacrificial bonfire in South and Western Europe.

This may be a blessing in disguise for Greece, getting out of the Euro and may encourage other countries to do the same.

Now they are meeting again this morning.

How much more humiliation can be dealt out?

Who cares if cutting out of a  pound of flesh kills the victim?

We want blood.

A European official present at the discussions, when asked what more needed to be discussed when ministers reconvene Sunday, said "everything."

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he's not authorized to talk publicly, said ministers wanted "more specific and binding commitments" and that the Greek government's proposals were "too little, too late."

Now our extreme right wing parties must be rubbing their hands with glee, see what they did to Greece, we want our country back.
