Does the Brussels gang pay anything real ? They just have billions of euros printed and transferred to Greece as "real" money. If we assume that printing a single €500 banknote costs €1 (=costs of paper, ink etc.) , then all of that "huge sum of money" is hugely reduced - by 500. The aim of the Brussels backmailers is not to help anybody out but to make them even more dependent and to secure the blackmailers' own endangered position. Through this payment the debt of Greece will momentarily increase by €110 bln making any real repay impossible while due to the inflationary measure of the Brussels "help" it will just cost a fraction of what is announced as real money , i.e. money covered by assets, with immense implications in terms of real power.

The problem is not that any EU countries want any other out. The problem is that they ALL want out and that the corrupt empire builders in Brussels and their bought chaindogs on the spot won't let anyone out. That's the reason they imposed that prefidious EU serfdom called the Lisbon treaty surreptitiously through the bought parliament instead of by referendum in every member state as they should have done. They know how much people across Europe resent being fooled and deprived of their freedom and identity in the name of a hypercorrupt hyperbureaucracy .
