Greek Drama

In an absolute desperate effort to manipulate the Greek vote this weekend this headline just out from Reuters. I expect press releases like this to be coming fast and furious through the end of week.

Eurozone may tinker with Greek bailout terms after election.

My favorite quote:

A German EU official said regardless of who wins the Greek vote, a new government would be given a final chance. “There will be a very clear 100-day plan for a new government. If it’s not implemented in full, then the game is over,” the official said. “This is a very bitter election for the Greek people. They are being asked to support the old guard that got them into this mess.”

This strikes me as so similar to the choice which confronts Egypt.
