Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Good points however I'm consistently pissed at the standard misrepresentation:
You can see whence this myth comes: the Greeks do retire in their fifties; they did lie about their budget deficit; and it is galling when they demand serial bailouts

So let me repeat: Greeks did not retire in their 50s (fig. 15 Gr=EL) and they never demanded a bailout.
