In most referendums in the EU the NO side tends to win

The other nations of the EU should pay attention to what is happening in Greece.  Just like Greece, if any of them attempt to assert themselves they will be beaten black and blue.  And like Greece, they will be required to kiss the rod that has just thrashed them.

Let us hope the Greek people vote NO in their referendum.

And history favours the NO side - in most referendums in the EU the NO side tends to win.

There will be six months of (creative) chaos.

And then the Greeks will realise what a silly trick they have been playing on themselves these past few years.

But for an American view Neil Irwin writes about Greece in the New York Times:  http://www.nytimes.com/2015/06/29/upshot/the-next-few-days-will-transform-greece-and-europe.html?_r=0
