The "Bloodless" Greek Coup

has just tweeted the following:

"Source in EU Greece Task Force: growing concerns the 'prior actions' Athens has to enact to trigger bailout may be 'impossible' to meet."

Aside from the fact that people are now waking up to the fact that the austerity measures and financial targets being imposed on the Greek people are all but impossible to meet, it is also now dawning on people that, in all but name only, the Eurozone has enacted a (as yet bloodless) coup on the Greek people.

Greece has now been placed on "Special Measures" by the Eurozone and, for the next two years, irrespective of the wishes of the Greek people has now ceased to govern itself. Some Greek people now even have to pay for the privilege of working.

No one (aside from maybe those policy wonks who dwell in the bunkers of the Eurozone) seriously thinks that this stands a cat's chance in hell of working.

Why therefore go to all this trouble?

Simple, the decision has already been made to expel Greece from the Eurozone. However, those who have made the decision want Greece to pull the trigger!
