The Greek Finance Minister backed the referendum as soon as the Greek Prime Minister announced it.
He said he changed his mind the very next day, probably to go with the flow and not take responsibility.
That indicates though that the finance minister seems to be acting as a puppet, unable to make his own
decisions and willing to act the way he is told. And this indicates that not only is he not suitable, but also
he is very dangerous for Greece, unable to protect its people.
As for the referendum itself, I strongly believe it would be catastrophic. Elections
would have had a much better, quicker and probably safer result, plus
a referendum might separate people and turn them against each other.
Remember that staying in the Eurozone is a crucial matter, and many
take it to their heart, so we might see hostility growing between the Greeks.
Greeks are afraid, and have been afraid for the past two years. A referendum
would have been extremely useful before bringing the IMF into the country.
Now it is just pointless. It only serves one purpose actually: so that the greek
Prime Minister will not be held responsible, aka when the answer comes out
negative, he will say: hey, I fought for us to stay in the Euro, but I thought it had
come to a point where people needed to speak up. The people spoke, it's a no,
this is not my fault. But in reality, it is his fault, because referendum or no, Greece
was either way about to leave the Eurozone, and not necessarily with its will. He is
actually trying to burden his tremendous failure on the Greek people (as I stated in another thread).
