Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think Greece is screwed now because any default will be far more messy politically than financially.

Greece is not Iceland, and the Greek people never got the chance to tell the money to fuck off.

So there will be some kind of no-default-then-default spasm, which won't be the clean break it needs to be.

If Greece leaves the Euro zone - or leaves Europe - expect something beyond the usual IMF riots, followed by something even less democratic than the 'technocratic' non-democracy in place at the moment.
