Padraic Cradock: EU stands for 'Europe's Undoing'

THERE is no end in sight of the economic depression ordained for Greece by the Troika. But living in Athens has certain advantages in spite of this.

At this time of the year there is a good deal of sun and a cappuccino or a glass of chipouro, the local grappa, on a cafe terrace is still affordable. The TV news shows snow chaos at German airports and traffic problems on the autobahn. It is a small comfort to see that the oppressors are suffering some discomfort. There's nothing like a bit of schadenfreude to keep you going.
