On news that far-left political party in SYRIZA in Greece has won in a resounding victory sending shock-waves across Europe.
Richard Ashworth Conservative MEP for South East England in a strong warning to the new Greek government said:
“There is no easy way out for the Greek economy and the Greek people. Let’s not forget it is not the fault of the international community that over 30 years consecutive Greek governments have failed to raise or collect taxes. The Greeks should be under no illusion that their debts will simply disappear because Mr Tsipras is Prime Minister. I am afraid Greece has chosen to go out of the frying pan into the fire.”
