Serious accusation

Angela Merkel has never been notable for gentleness in relation to Greece and today she confirmed her opinion.

I read on Marketwatch that German leader has blamed her Social Democrat predecessor Gerhard Schroeder for letting Greece adopt the euro, saying the country's entry into the single-currency bloc is at the root of the euro zone's current problems.

"The euro is more than a currency. For this reason, we've shown solidarity -- but solidarity always linked to responsibility for reforms," she said, according to the Telegraph.
