Stop Press: Greeks go to the polls in September

Oh no! Not again!

It’s going to be sleepless nights, litres of coffee and frayed nerves……….again.

Latest news coming out of Athens is that the government is about to resign.

And that means elections are on their way.

At this point, I have to admit that I misread the mood of the Greek populace after the Greek politicians turned a “No” referendum result into a “Yes” for more austerity. I predicted riots in the streets and a general collapse in the country.

But this did not happen.

It can only be that the Greek population have become politically mature beyond all the expectations of their “leaders”. I guess that they now realise that a tick in the correct box on a ballot paper, will in the end, change the status quo quicker than throwing a brick through Zorba’s Coffee Shop window!

Now things are really crucial. They have got to get it right this time……time has run out!

It was nil-nil after extra time and now we are in the penalty shoot out.

Come on Greece……..please do not miss the goals!
