“You know listen Greece is like a sideshow. It doesn’t mean anything. Greece is such a small economy. It’s not even an export-based economy. It’s a great place to go on holiday. Who cares if Greece goes out of the euro? Let them set up their Drachma again and go back to how they’ve been running their economy for the last 60 years. The whole Greek thing is a distraction to the Council of Ministers, to the European Commission, to the ECB. They should cut it and run and say listen ‘You’re on your own’.”
