G(r)eek Out…


Will there be a Big, Fat, Greek Divorce – or – Will they get It to the Greek in time.
Will Greece quit the European Union? It’s not a tragedy. It’s not a comedy. It’s a Reality Quiz Show…

Q: Will Greece quit the European Union?

  1. No; Papandreou will tighten his belt, stand firm, legs splayed girded for a fight and shout “I am Sparta”. Greece will make a last stand.
  2. Yes: Greece will sneak out and party – drink ouzo and dance the Zorba
  3. Greece has nowhere to go. With debt piling up, they have priced themselves out of their own country

Q: Why can’t the EU throw out the Greeks?

  1. If they do, where will they stop? They will end up with Germany and France alone in one room – which is everyone’s worst nightmare come true – why do you think the EU was created. And NATO.
  2. To carry forward the highbrow ideals of a common union, a self-feeding myth up there with the Virgin Mary, Santa Claus and a moral politician-turned-Wall Streeter (or vice-versa).
  3. Actually to answer that let’s convene another committee to table the motion for the sub-panel to discuss the points put forward by the working group…

Q: Will England return the Elgin Marbles to Greece to help raise some funds?

  1. Now that they have hit rock bottom, Greece needs to build brick-by-brick
  2. Have you lost your marbles?
  3. No, this will be the thin edge of the wedge. With all the loot collected during Raj, England will lose hundreds, thousands.

Q: Who’s next in line?

  1. Spain – will start to hock its over-priced under-performing assets to balance their budgets –their football players
  2. Isn’t it time to stuff the Turkey?
  3. Why is Iceland all quiet and peaceful – as if frozen in time – it’s on ice, now?

Q: Who wins or loses in this whole saga?

  1. England will be able to gloat for years on this exclaiming “I told you so” with unmitigated glee
  2. Threatens the very reason of existence of Luxembourg and Brussels – no more nose to the trough, so many unemployed politicians and bureaucrats walking around – that’s the “Too Big To Fail” disaster scenario
  3. Hollywood is already got a movie in the works with sequels on Italy, Portugal and Spain. Anthony Quinn has been pulled out of his retirement to play all the Greek roles.

If your score is:
5-8: this is all Greek and Latin to you, get in line.
9-11: you are dazed and confused. Welcome to the position of the Governor of the European Central Bank
12-15: you have found the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe and everything. This message will self destruct in 42 seconds.

Greek out.
