Greece ‘stuck between a rock and actually paying tax’
Papademos added: “What if we tax arson at 30 percent and pretending at 40 percent? I think that’s how it works.”
Economist Julian Cook said: “The issue of whether or not Greece stays in the Euro still seems to be relevant, which I do find incredibly sweet.
“It’s a bit like someone who owes you fifty quid asking if you take invisible credit cards.”
He added: “At least Mr Papademos has finally hit upon the doing and taxing of ‘stuff’.
“And while it’s not for me to tell the Greeks what stuff they should do, I suspect it will have to involve sunshine and delivering cheap lager to fat, horrid, working class English people.
“And there, I think you will find, is your ‘hard place’.”
