TEc - "NO" to what? - Easy question, easy answer
There's no need to make it difficult when the answer is pretty straightforward:
NO to all that is wrong with EU governance, Eurozone governance and, of course, Greece governance too.
We shouldn't dwell on semantics and interpretation when the Greek saga has unfolded itself before our very eyes day in day out for the past 5 years at least.
Much longer to my mind, if the rootcause/s to current troubles are to be sought.
Greece and its Syriza government have taught us all a major lesson in Democracy and Politics as both being key to addressing the needs of the many. Everyone should acknowledge this basic fact regardless of ideology and the nitty gritty of how best to overcome the long drawn-out expensive Eurozone stalemate.
If a country squeezed between a rock and a hard place rises up and says NO people of goodwill across Europe, especially the leadership, should listen very carefully. Unless the enlightened few ruling today's finance-dominated economies/politics/countries are forever prepared to make a mockery of all that was previously reported as being cherished and invaluable to Europe.
The consequences are beginning to show.
Greece does require a fix within the Eurozone.
So does the Eurozone as a whole for the benefit of every member country.
It is high time for European Politics to kick in reining in the institutions (and their actors-of-the-day) from overreaching their mandates and legitimacy, and for all to show some respect for common folk from Greece to Germany, from Finland to Portugal.
