    and Syriza has already ruled out being part of a coalition government.

    3.55pm Antonis Samaras completes his meeting with Syriza leader Alexis Tsipras. As expected, Tsipras has refused to take part in any form of coalition, or as Samaras calls it, a "salvation government". Tsipras stated that"Greece is now in better position to negotiate and the country should take advantage of this", while also saying that his party respected the electional result. He stressed that "a government should be formed from the core of ND, as it was the will of the people", but reminded Samaras that this government would be judged by them as well as the country's history. As for his party's role the Syriza leader said that "parliamentary opposition should be critical and responsible and I have informed mr. Samaras that we intend to be that".

    The euro crisis and the role of SYRIZA

    How can a progressive revolutionary socialist party support a neo-liberal institution like the EU and the Euro and put Greek workers in the euro straight jacket?. This the point that the KKE was making and it is one of the many reasons why the KKE had a major problem with getting into bed with SYRIZA. Tspiras wants to give the ECB and the bondholders the two fingers while remaining in the euro and taking the cash. The KKE have consistantly pointed out that this sort of populist rhetoric is simply nonsense. They have argued from the start that Greece needs to purge itself of the debts by getting out of the euro, re-adopting the Drachma and implementing a new taxation system.

    SYRIZA are a busted flush. They are made up of different and disparate groups and in time will fracture. The KKE on the otherhand are fairly solid and will pick up the pieces.
    Ah come on, I have time for the KKE but for a Communist Party to be not showing any gains during capitalism's crisis is not good!

    Lack of self-awareness is amusing.

    FT reporting that Samaras hopes to have a deal done tonight and announce cabinet tomorrow. Syriza is out, the Indos are out, DL is being encouraged to join the coaltion.

    We could just have a ND/Pasok government , the two parties that destroyed the country together, will try fix it, what has changed though, what will Samraras and Venizelos do now they didn't do before.

    Talk about being direct and getting to the point from Kamennos leader of the Indos.

    True, the anti-bailout parties got most of the vote but it may be the same lot that has Greece where it is now, Pasok & ND, that form the next government.

    Spanish Yields at 7% Show Investors Slamming Door: Euro Credit - Yahoo! Finance

    So, voting pro bailout/Merkel Policies are really helping Europe.

    Spanish 10 year yields are neck and neck with irish yields. They may have spanked us on the football pitch, but on the bond yield markets it's as tight as a pair of spandex trousers. We, of course, are a long lost cause, imf and bailout junkies for years to come, but the spanish denial continues, they are toughing it out like an old bull in the ring, full of swords, dropping on one knee, snorting bravely as the final blow comes down.

    The whole place is going to collapse, lead all the way by Merkel. This is yet another example of how futile her policies are. Listening to the pro merkel/bailout/austerity monkeys one would be forgiven for thinking that the spanish bond prices today are shocking since the Greeks voted for the bailout policies. Wasn't that supposed to calm everything and start Europe on the road to recovery????
