Time to put up a fight

The situation in Europe is getting more and more difficult by the day and soon it will be time for a number of tough, crucial decisions to be made.

Meanwhile, the harsh warnings directed at Greece have multiplied and are now coming even from European leaders who have supported the country in the past, such as European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso.

At the same time what is also unfortunately true is that the country?s exit from the eurozone is no longer a remote possibility.

However, this doesn?t mean that the country should not put up a fight and come out on top. But it is not enough to have a serious prime minister in order to win this battle.

What is required is hard and unpleasant work on the part of ministers who are focused on their portfolios rather than their public image, as well as responsible political parties participating in a national unity government rather than a temporary interim administration.

In any case, time is running out.
