Vote for cuts or leave: UK PM to Greeks
[Iran Press TV] British Prime Minister David Cameron
... has stated that he is
certainly a big Thatcher fan, but I don't know whether that makes me a Thatcherite, which means he's not. Since he is
not deeply ideological he lacks core principles and is easily led. He has been described as
certainly not a Pitt, Elder or Younger, but he does wear a nice suit so maybe he's Beau Brummel ...
has warned the Greek people that they should leave the euro zone if they vote for anti-austerity left-wingers.
Speaking of a new legislative election in Greece which is to be held on 17 June 2012, Cameron said Greece's new round of elections must be a referendum on whether the country should stay in the euro zone, reported The Sun.
"Greece is going to vote - it has to be absolutely clear there is a choice," said Cameron.
"They can vote to stay in the eurozone and meet their commitments or they can vote to give up on their commitments and in effect give up on the eurozone. This must be a moment of decisiveness," he added.
The new legislative election is to be held after a coalition government was unable to be formed in Greece following the election in May.
The Sun described Cameron's message as "the toughest language yet from any EU leader."
Cameron's tough warning came as British Secretary of State for Justice said the wrong Greek vote could hit Britannia hard and the UK is "heavily exposed" to potential problems.
