The Greeks maybe had nothing to lose ie damned if they do, damned if they don't but they took the brave and courageous decision today. What's more it's a wake up call to the EU bully boys in Brussels that democracy still has an important place in Europe.
I do not live on Crete, but I am regular watcher of this forum. I understand feelings of many Greeks, but if ECB does not increase ELA then Greeks lose a lot (not maybe, for sure). How will Tsipras open banks in such case? It's not about feelings, democracy, about bully boys in Brussels, it's about practical life. I think this will be disaster for Greeks, mainly after what Varoufakis and Tsipras are showing.
I would understand OXI only if there is a plan B for banks, like Neodrachma on Monday and new life with primary surplus, no external financing, ... and greedy creditors goodbye! But something tells me there is no such plan.
Would somebody explain to me what are real economical benefits of OXI vote?
