Greek Government “Not Holding Out Much Hope” For Monday Even As Market Signals Deal Imminent (ZeroHedge, Feb 14, 2015):

According to Kathimerini, late last night, Greek PM Tsipras chaired a meeting of his cabinet on Friday night to brief ministers on the state of talks with the eurozone. “With the possibility of the government having to make a compromise with the eurozone over the way forward in the next few days, Tsipras was eager to assess the mood of his cabinet. Some members, such as Energy Minister Panayiotis Lafazanis have been adamant that the government should stick to its pre-election pledges.” Which probably suggests that Greece is if not about to fold, then certainly cave on most, if not all, of its demands. Still, Greece is hopeful that some deus ex machina will appear in the last minute, and that delaying the inevitable will give it some further leverage. Which explains why, as Kathimerini reported, “the government is not holding out much hope for a solution in Brussels on Monday.

  1. Why would Greece fold? If they leave the EU, they get food and money from BRICS. Why stay with the losing side?
    Maybe there is something here I don’t understand………but if the officials leave themselves open to bribery, their entire government will blow up in weeks.
    There are not the most reliable of people……..
