THE Greek people are ready to give their final yes or no vote on an unknown issue that will decide their entire future.
Sunday’s referendum, which asks “Would you like to not accept turning down saying yes to declining your assent to the agreement of the unified two-part proposal from the European Commission, ECB and IMF?” offers the Greek people a clear choice on something that will be decided later.
Mikis Vamvakaris of Thessalonika said: “The Syriza government has done exactly the right thing by delegating this important decision to its heroically confused citizens in an illegal referendum.
“Quite simply, do we want to accept withdrawn bailout terms that will not be offered again, or do we want to do something else but nobody knows what yet?
“It’s as unambiguous as those little marketing opt-out boxes that you have to tick. Or not tick.”
A survey of Greek voters found that they believe the referendum to be about leaving the Euro, leaving the EU, overturning the result of World War Two, shuffling the islands about a bit, abandoning democracy forever or enabling acts of auto-cannibalism among finance ministers.
Elena Alexiou of Chania said: “I will be voting Oxi. No.
“Why? I’m Greek, that’s fucking why.”
