As for the EU, there's little else to say. They have gone from promising the earth and the heavens to their citizens, to becoming the executioners of the IMF and their own bankers. Pity they cannot see that by carrying out like this, they are not just destroying Greece but also the very foundations of their precious and profitable political and economic unity. For them, too, the hour of reckoning is nigh.
Drama and tragedy: Greek concepts, Greek words and the Greeks love them both. Yet to top them off, there's nothing that the average Greek loves more than a good song and dance. From the lyre to the bouzouki and all manners of drums and dancing in between, music is one part of an ancient culture that no Grexit can extinguish.
Spring brought a burst of sunshine over the eurozone economy. The French economy expanded rapidly in the first quarter of 2015 and even the Italian one managed respectable growth. Fiscal policy is no longer contractionary across the eurozone as a whole. Cheaper oil is boosting consumption. A weaker euro is boosting exports. And the ECB's quantitative easing appears to be working: money supply growth is picking up, suggesting deflationary pressures are easing.
Greece's Alexis Tsipras has embarked on a European tour to win support for his economic agenda. European leaders should engage constructively with his proposals. There are many good economic arguments for Tsipras plans but the main reason to make concessions to Greece is a lesson from the politics of the Great Depression.
New Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis is cutting a dash as he jets around Europe economy class. It certainly makes a change to see a leader so seemingly down to earth even if I think he'd look more credible with his shirt tucked in. But as the rest of the Eurozone wonders how to solve a problem called Syriza what are the rights and wrongs of this situation and where can the solution be found?
Some fear the standoff with the Troika - the International Monetary Fund, the European Central Bank and the European Commission - could derail the Greek recovery and spread to other countries re-igniting the eurozone crisis. Whether smooth sailing or a rocky ride, the voyage will be memorable. Lifejackets at the ready.
They tell me under this island is Europe's richest deposits of oil and gas, the Chinese Prime Minister visited this month, and the government here are getting paid to allow the Syrian Chemical weapons arsenal to be poured into the sea just off the North Western coast... Exactly why is this Doctor serving me coffee earning a little over 400 euro per month (£320 approx.) in the process? She can't answer that one either.
