@iamamro It isn't just the euro. Europe's democracy itself is at stake. @julesevans7 Amartya Sen: 'we shouldn't let rating agencies lord it over states'.

@BBCMichaelCrick Greek Foreign Minister Stravros Lambrinidis smiles at me when I suggest the idea Greece should leave the euro.

@urbanprojectz Why don't we just force Greece to go bankrupt, expel them from the euro (a minimum 15 year ban). They go back to the drachma, problem solved.

@peter_tl More than 50pc of Greek debt now in hands of governments, IMF, ECB and euro-zone central.

@tweetminster Germany and France were the only members of the eurozone to register an expansion of private-sector activity in June.
