So the Eurozone leaders have decided on shovelling yet more money onto the fire within the banking boiler.
Common sense says the best option would be for Greece and all the other bankrupt Euro countries to drop-out, default and devalue.

A slow, controlled deflation is the only option , not the constant stoking of the inflationary fire that continues to ravage our economies.
Ah well, it seems people never learn and our leaders will continue to show their stupidity and throw our hard earned cash at the people who pissed it up the wall in the first place.
