GREEK debt talks have broken down after the country kept changing the subject to the new series of True Detective.
Representatives from the IMF, the EU and the European Central Bank admitted being frustrated by Alexis Tsipras’s attempts to discuss whether Colin Farrell could adequately replace Matthew McConaughey’s screen magnetism, among other topics.
ECB chief Mario Draghi said: “When I’m owed 27 billion euros I urgently need back, I’m not really interested in whether True Detective is ‘overwrought’.
“And I would prefer to discuss repayment arrangements and austerity measures rather than being dragged into an argument about whether Ant-Man can continue Marvel’s streak of box office success.
“Which it completely can, because Paul Rudd is a very engaging performer who can combine comedy and action as well as Robert Downey Jnr. Oh shit, now I really want to get into this.”
Tsipras said: “It’s been nothing but debt and austerity, over and over again for months. Change the bloody record for five minutes.
“Let’s talk about the new Aero McFlurry or Top Gear or Cara Delevingne instead of bailout debts the whole time.
“I mean everyone knows we’re not going to pay it.”
