Greek Bailout Spins Toward Crisis; EU Leaders Still Feckless

    Greece is beyond rescue: the politicians are just manoeuvring to try to ensure that the blame for the denouement falls on someone else.

    The whole Euro adventure was designed and supported by people who must have been mad, stupid, ignorant, or reckless (these categories not being mutually exclusive).

    Dearieme said “Greece is beyond rescue.”

    It sure is, and it’s probable not only Greece..

    Aren’t these words of Yates spooky, Mr. Mead, given today’s environment:

    “Turning and turning in the widening gyre
    The falcon cannot hear the falconer;

    Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
    Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,

    The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere

    The ceremony of innocence is drowned;

    The best lack all conviction, while the worst
    Are full of passionate intensity.

    Surely some revelation is at hand;
    Surely the Second Coming is at hand. “
