"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

The Art Of Dissembling

I think this roughly translates as: "To those who must take responsibility:  more unanimity and unity is better for the Greek people and our future."

The smiling two-faced snake-in-the-grass.

Vote 'no' and you're on your own.
On the eve of perhaps the most significant vote in the Greek parliament since the return of democracy to the country in 1974, the European Commission has warned Greek deputies that if they do not vote the right way, then "everything changes" as to whether "EU solidarity continues". 
It's what we've always known, that unanimity and unity is fine as long as you agree with them.  All is harmony until someone expresses a differing viewpoint, then the gloves come off and it's Goodnight Vienna.

It was only this morning that Plan B contingency plans were being discussed.

I'm finding it harder than usual lately to tell truth from lies so I'll just keep going with my gut instinct.   Part of it, I think, is that the press and msm are beginning to 'report' EU activities and countries' sovereign debt problems so they just add their own unique blend of spin to the mix.  Anyone relying on ITV/BBC/Ch.4 news will be sadly under-informed or actively misled.  Lying by omission is still a lie.

Barroso: "There is no Plan B."

Look at Guy Verhofstadt (roughly 1:30) - isn't that a face you'd love to slap and a stomach you'd like to prod? He's rather porky around the neck area as well.
