Germany was Biggest Debt Transgressor of 20th Century … 03,00.html

…so lets drop the national stereotyping etc.


Lets focus on the current state of play, not what happened 80 years ago.

Greece is a basket case that continues to spend more money that it earns.

But how much exactly do the Grecian urns??? :open_mouth:

They haven’t a pot to piss in.

True, it seems the Irish and the Greeks are y-urning for 2005 again and b-urning bondholders. :-GC

If the article said Ireland instead of Greece, it would be more to the point.

It is very difficult to burn the bond holder before they have given you the money.
