A GREEK EURO YESTERDAY!
BRITISH taxpayers could be forced to pay up to £3.5billion a year towards bailing out the crisis-hit Greek economy, it emerged last night.European Union chiefs were yesterday discussing plans for all member states to contribute towards a financial rescue. The relief package would be designed to ease Greece’s colossal debt burden and save the troubled euro single currency. German President Angela Merkel is to press for all EU states, including Britain, to be ready to provide billions of pounds in emergency debt aid.
A £3.5billion contribution would be equivalent to putting an extra penny on the basic rate of income tax. It could cost the average household more than £140 a year.
Was it not our staying out of the EURO which meant that we wouldn't get involved in it's workings? What do we get in return? A year's supply of Metaxa Brandy? Some Ouzo? Some Olives? Or what about some of those little Greek Islands and we Brits could all get cheap hols. NO? I DIDN'T THINK SO. TELL THEM TO FUCK OFF, WE PAY ENOUGH AS IT IS SINCE BLAIR HANDED BACK OUR REBATE!
