    Greece.

    It's very interesting now. Looks like the Euro's are pulling back and softening their cough a little.

    This is a big one for the Euro's. It's been a mess from start to finish with Greece and other countries (including my own). This Tsipras guy, he's been called an amateur and reckless but he's trying to get the best result for his country, I admire him for that. The vote tomorrow I think will be a yes. I'd vote No if I was a Greek. It will be probably more disastrous but whats been happening for the last few years anyway.

    It's not all their own fault either.

    The attempted delay of the IMF report shows the skullduggery of the EU leadership troika etc..

    The greeks have a devils choice.. Vote now and suffer huge economic pain, with a chance of recovery later, or vote yes and suffer less pain now, but not hope of recovery for decades.

    I would be for voting no.. But then I would have no money in a greek bank, assets outside the greek economy, and hence the extend of economic pain would be personally lesser.

    This Is Why The Euro Is Finished - The Automatic Earth

    Hyperbole clickbait title but what hes saying is true.. The moral bankruptcy of the troika in this case is pretty shocking.

    Drones eye view of the 'no' crowd..



    However dont let that seem like theres no yes crowd, the split is 42.5 v 43% yes v no with a 3% margin of error.. Too close to call..

    Also has to be said, with such a monumental choice, and such a tight split.. The potential for unrest from the losing side is quite large also..

    It's a lovely idea.. but it's never going to work. It was worth attempting also.

    Dunno about the equal rights bit, as we'll have corporations running everything... but like climate change it's inevitable and unstoppable... a few hiccups along the way won't change anything... we'll all eventually be Christlams... even your bollockless doggy offspring... 55

    And why? Take a look where a lot of us are living now... like most places I have people living and working around me from every corner of the planet... and the locals are slowly becoming a minority... unthinkable 50 years ago. Like the AI singularity... there will be a similar tipping point in human immigration...

    LIl.. can you find me a link to support this please.. 55

    Sooo, what's your time-frame on this?? The human race is way to selfish for that to happen.....Religion have to be wiped out long time before we even think about this, and the way Islam is going I think it's more likely to end up with WW3 than peace and love......

    Until the so called peace loving Muslims take a hold of their own religion, there won't be rainbows and kisses anywhere.
