Greece trembles as financial woes worsen
SHOOT: Don't be too quick to judge Greece. They're sukkeling, they're trying to plug financial leaks with taxpayers money, and the taxpayers - rightly - are pissed. The problem is that the credit crunch and financial crisis has made a lot of people, entire nations, poorer. They're not going to be going gently into the night as a result. South Africa shares much of that financial angst, and with our large populace that is poor and unemployed, we're walking a tightrope ourselves.
