I hope someone can explain why Greece has voted in an anti- austerity party. I do understand they are having a terrible time after getting into debt. The rich avoided income tax for years while many other people did not earn enough to pay tax. From what I can gather that means there is no money. I also understand their benefits system was very generous and people retired at a young age. So how can a country that receives minimum tax returns ever sustain such a lifestyle.
After years of terrible house keeping on the Greeks part the rest of Europe who are also suffering Austerity are expected to wipe most of their debts ; so they can carry on as normal. Hey, we are hard up as well even though we did pay high taxes to the exchequer. In the UK the number of people using food banks is going up at an alarming rate. Don't get me wrong I do have sympathies with their dilemma it must be awful after living such a good standard of living without paying for it then having it all taken away. Sorry.
