EXCLUSIVE: How a German veto scuppered EU-Greece deal | Paul Mason | Paul Mason

Negotiators had agreed “the possibility for reviewing technically, extending and successfully concluding the reviewed programme”.

The key word here is reviewed, because it signified that if Greece agreed to carry on with the programme originally imposed by the troika, that programme would be amended or altered.

Crucial for the Greek side, was an agreement that the review would still allow the Greek government to address its “humanitarian crisis”.

I understand that on both these issues, the review and the humanitarian crisis, the Greeks reached an agreement with eurozone negotiator Jeroen Djisselbloem, but that the form of words was then vetoed by German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schauble.
