The Guardian
The country will exit from its final international bailout within weeks but, with no sign the debt will ever be paid off, some fear another crisisGreece’s oldest literary society, the Parnassos cultural club, stands opposite a church on one of Athens’s oldest squares. Its neoclassical facade and monumental columns were designed to impress. The society, named after the home of the Muses, had a single objective: to promote the nation’s “intellectual, moral and social improvement” as Greeks, newly freed from the shackles of Ottoman rule, sought to pursue the course of other European states. It was here that poets and writers came, that Maria Callas first sang, that every artist of every hue first exhibited, and royals and prime ministers flocked. It is also why Parnassos’s fortunes have reflected those of Greece.

Throughout the entire time the Liberal party was in opposition you could scarcely go a day without hearing them mention how the ALP had blown the surplus and how the Howard government had left “money in the bank”, and that now we had record levels of debt.

But what infuriates “Buster Jack” and his secretive colleagues is when they warn a bank about a fraud – such as identifying an account used by crooks – and the bank fails to act. According to “Jack”, he contacted TSB about an account at the bank that was being used by a scammer to launder funds.
