Greek rescue in danger as deputy prime minister attacks 'Nazi' Germany

Theodoros Pangalos, [the Greek government's] deputy prime minister, said Germany had no right to reproach Greece for anything after it devastated the country under the Nazi occupation, which left 300,000 dead. "They took away the gold that was in the Bank of Greece, and they never gave it back. They shouldn't complain so much about stealing and not being very specific about economic dealings," he told the BBC.
Oh dear. Still, at least when push comes to shove it's good to see that it's still gold that gets everyone's attention, rather than fiat confetti rubbish.
