the EU are going to bail out greece and G.B. has been asked to chip in 3.5 billion pounds. Now we are close to the same dire straits as greece and as we are not in the euro should we decline the request?
what happens when portugal,eire, spain and the six unamed eastern european nations which are on the brink too asked to be bailed out, I do'nt think the EU can afford to set a standard with greece.
I feel they should be asked to leave the euro till they get their house in order and seek help from the IMF.
Alistair Darling, said there was no plan to use UK taxpayers' money to support Greece. Eurozone officials made plain at the G7 meeting in Canada that this was entirely a single currency matter and that it was for Euro-members to sort it out. Gordon Brown has said “there is international support available, if the Euro area wishes to move ahead with a proposal that’s for the Euro area.
So having said all that, don’t be surprised if Gordon Brown does contribute UK taxpayers' money, towards bailing out a Country that has admitted falsifying statistics for years, to make its deficit look smaller.
