A GREEK GIRL SUNBATHING IN CORFU YESTERDAY
Greece was last night handed a generous national bailout by its euro partners which will end up costing British taxpayers more than £600million a year. In a move aimed at shoring up dwindling confidence in the stricken country, the 16 euro zone members announced they would lend 30billion euros this year alone.
Germany and France agreed that Athens should receive preferential cut-price loans to stave off a financial crisis.
But another cash injection from the International Monetary Fund means Britain will have to pay part of a further £13billion bill to prop up Greece in the money markets. Because the UK contributes 5 per cent of the IMF annual budget, this would equate to a £650million bill for the taxpayer.
If Germany and France want to bail out GREECE, then they should pay for it entirely. The EURO EXPERIMENT was their doing entirely and BRITAIN WHICH IS NOT IN THE EUROZONE, shouldn't have to contribute towards it. How come we contribute 5% to the IMF. I thought we were skint!
If we have to, WE SHOULD DEMAND CORFU as retribution!
