Greece - the sick man of Europe
However, that was not before he had given his name to the 'Draconian' measures that were needed.
About 4 years ago I asked an entrepreneur ,recently returned from Greece, what had gone wrong. He replied 'they would not pay their taxes'. It would seem that he was not only candid but alarmingly on the button. The report on the right is scandalous.and says as much as words can what was wrong with this system.
As with the EU, foods became cheaper as laws began to bite but over time things were ironed out and success prevailed. It certainly looks as if the Greeks did not learn a lesson, so it would not be good for national character building by treating them leniently. Perhaps, we are emmured to having benefit scroungers and welchers living on the soft under belly of Europe.
