It was supposed to be a close vote, but it wasn’t

It was supposed to be a close vote, this referendum on whether the Greeks were going to accept the austerity measures demanded of them by their creditors.

But it wasn’t.

The measure was voted down by the Greeks by a 61% to 39% margin.

In the meantime, the provocative Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis has resigned. But that’s not going to help much. Everybody is at an impasse, and nobody is willing to blink. Stay tuned to see how this one resolves itself.

About a1skeptic

A disturbed citizen and skeptic. I should stop reading the newspaper. Or watching TV. I should turn off NPR and disconnect from the Internet. We’d all be better off.
