At the time of writing, with over 57% of the Greek referendum result known, it appears the result is 61% no and 39% yes.
Today’s dramatic result is a wake-up call for the failed EU Establishment. Even the most vulnerable small nation will not be bullied by supranational authorities.
The result reflects the politics of neither left nor right but the democratic rejection of an imposed solution to the country’s problems.
Whatever we may think of the politics and economics of the present Greek Government, our solidarity should be with the people of Greece in their suffering.
A way must now be found to respect the democratic will of the people of Greece. There will be no painless way forward so the British Government should be ready to explore what help can be provided in this crisis.
