Am I the only one reminded of the old story here?
Greek premier George Papandreou has threatened to go to the IMF unless the EU comes up with concrete help on acceptable terms by the end of the week. This brinkmanship is causing heartburn in Brussels, Paris, and Madrid, but the creditor states of North Europe are almost jumping at the chance to call his bluff.
It\’s just that I can\’t work out who is Brer Rabbit here.
The Greeks insisting that absolutely they don\’t want to go to the IMF? Or everyone else insisting that they shouldn\’t?
