The last bailout reimbursement of €7.5 billion remained outstanding when the previous government did not agree with the Troika on further austerity measures and the fifth progress review of the bailout program did not conclude in December/ January as foreseen by the bailout agreement.

On the other hand one should note, that 80% of bailout reimbursements go back to the lenders and only a small tranche goes to the Greek government.

  1. Endless dragging, endless begging for more money and endless blame games are making one so very tired.

    Please, Mister Prime Minister of the Hellenic Republic, since you think of the rest of Europe in such a somber light, get us out of your way and continue your road alone in the Greek sunshine.
    Really, I get your point, we, Europeans are terribly mean and doing all we can to suffocate your country. We are obstructing your sun light, so get us out of your way and sing your tunes on your own.

    I would gladly vote to forgive you all your debts if only we would get rid of you once and for all. No more subsidies, no more debts, no more funding in any way what so ever.
