Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well, Duncan Weldon's comparison is bogus. First of all, Yanis Varoufakis did not want to leave the Eurozone, he wanted to call the bluff of the Eurogroup, which repeatedly threatened to throw Greece out of the Euro. Also, he doesn't mention a major event which led to Varoufakis resignation: the referendum where the Greeks said no to the troika and after which Tsipras nevertheless wimped out. Besides, as far as I know, unlike Cummings, Yanis Varoufakis is not a proponent of authoritarianism...
