    Greece referendum: Early results show 'No' vote ahead

    Greece referendum: Early results show 'No' vote ahead - BBC News

    At the moment, 8:10pm CET, it looks as if Greece has said 'no' to the Troika's position on austerity.

    Tsipras says he wants to return to the negotiating table immediately. Let's see if the Troika respond by pulling the plug in revenge, or whether they will show that they are serious about keeping the Eurozone together.

    So, what happens now?

    I think the ball's now in Brussels/Berlin's court.

    As of right now Greece is still using the Euro.

    Who knows what will be going on next month?

    The Greek people don't want to leave the Euro, but they won't take any more of Europe's lethal medicine either.

    They need to man up and leave the EU.

    "No" appears to have won decisively. With 46.6% of the vote in, "No" leads 61.1% - 38.9%. "No" needs to win just over 40.3% of the remaining votes to prevail.

    While I supported the "Yes" side on worries about Greece's exit from the Euro Zone, I fully respect the choice of Greece's people. I do hope the EU/ECB/IMF will be generous with Greece.

    They're not going to withdraw, not from the Eurozone - although they can be ejected - nor from the EU, from which they cannot be ejected.

    Early results suggested the No camp had won Sunday’s highly divisive referendum in Greece over the terms of its international bailout, a vote which creditors deemed an in-out choice on euro membership.

    With a third of the vote counted, the No camp was solidly ahead on 61 per cent and was ahead in every region of the country, leading experts to predict victory for Greek prime minister Alexis Tsipras.

    Interesting - the news has been billing this as an (eventual) 'leaving the EU'.
