Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Sending in the bailiffs to take away some sun-drenched islands and perhaps an Acropolis (or more mundane goods) is a way of getting paid in Greeks' money.

Or just buying up even more holiday homes, businesses and other property assets in Greece. The Greeks get an Aldi near them by way of recompense.

In rural France, I don't have far to go to two Lidls and an Aldi. I don't consider them evidence of German colonisation, just part of an even cheaper crap food distribution subsystem of large-corporate supermarketry in general.

As to Greece, I did mention "more mundane goods". The point being that the core financial system will (if not checked) extract its pound of flesh.
