Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.
But really, what could they do? Do they have everything under control as they say? Would they cut off the "aid"? what would happen if Greece goes to elections with the prospect of an ECB defeat, especially if the left (which using considerable laxity in its definition, was estimated this Sunday at 26%, with 40% non-voting) was seen to be potentially more than an annoying detail? Would they risk blowing up the eurozone edifice? Are they really ready to handle the domino effect? And could an out of control Eurozone member (with all that might imply for EU safety) be tolerated?
