It really is a bit much that various EU leaders talk about Greece having to 'rebuild' trust. What about the trust those leaders have to rebuild with the Greek people and the people of Europe?

Still the EU elite refuses to face responsibility for its own mistake in 2010, and the mess it led to, when the Eurozone group forced Greece, then Ireland, then Spain, Portugal and Cyprus to link their banking debt to national debt.

The consequences of that stupid decision, presumably made at the behest of the banks like Goldman Sachs, has led to the current mess in the eurozone.
