    Your claim is bunk based on polls, anecdotes, and well, evreything else that exists.

    I guess Samaras, Papandreou, Papademos, Karamanlis and Mitsotakis had nothing to do with the Grecian fraud. Still less Goldman Sachs, Draghi, Trichet, Duisenberg, Marín, Santer, Delors. No, no one who was involved in the Greek fraud bears any responsibility, only Tsipras and Varoufakis.
    Others certainly created the problem. Tsipras created the crisis. Samaras had no role in either.

    so a 180% debt to gdp ratio , with declining employment and tax receipts isn't a crisis.

    LOL

    It was and remains a terrible problem but there was a path to a solution. Tsipras left that path and created the crisis.

    how do you "solve" the problem when you are losing employment and wages simultaneously? where will the tax receipts come from ?

    Not resident since 2004. The election of Tsipras is sufficient proof that not all Greeks understand their situation.
