First exit polls from Greek state TV show it is neck and neck. With 75pc of polling stations accounted for, New Democracy is forecast to win between 27.5pc and 30.5pc, and Syriza 27pc to 30pc. In other words, this a cliffhanger that could drag into the wee hours.

Pasok is third with between 10pc and 12pc, the neo-fascist Golden Dawn will definitely sit in parliament for the first time with 6pc-7.5pc. Democratic Left of Fotis Kouvelis is on 5.5pc-6.5pc and the Communist Party vote has sunk even further to 5pc-6pc.

I thought acid wouldn't make you trip if you didn't keep it in the freezer.


Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

Looks like they got their bailout and can postpone the inevitable a little longer.

Not too much longer...

Quote:Although the New Democracy party won the largest share of the vote, it will have to rely on its discredited socialist rivals Pasok to form a coalition government to accept the bail-out, keeping Greece in the single currency.

Both parties, which have ruled Greece for 38 years, are widely blamed for a crisis that has taken the country to the brink of economic collapse. Between them they won only about 40 per cent of the vote. By contrast, parties that opposed the bail-out increased their share of the vote to over 46 per cent, with Syriza, the radical Leftist coalition that wants to discard the agreement, almost winning outright.

Last night, Syriza insisted it would not join any kind of national unity government and promised to provide strong opposition to any pro-bail-out coalition.

Alexis Tsipras, the Syriza leader, said he would help the government if it took measures to alleviate the burden on the people. “But it must understand that austerity measures and the selling off of public wealth cannot be imposed,” he said. “Anti-austerity is the only viable solution.” Any New Democracy-led government will be under intense pressure to renegotiate the terms of Greece’s bail-out to stave off another political collapse and civil unrest.

Financial markets are expected to react to the tight election results, with speculation mounting that Greece may yet be forced out of the single currency. A weakened government will struggle to implement the austerity measures demanded by its EU and IMF creditors.

Central banks across the world are thought to be ready to pump billions of dollars, euros and pounds into the global economy today if it becomes necessary.

David Cameron, who left for the G20 summit in Mexico late last night, is today expected to warn that global leaders must now “fight for the future of our world economy”.

I don't think they have enough of a coalition to impose the austerity measures. Essentially yesterdays dog and pony show was not enough to stave off the inevitable. A good day to keep your eyes on the markets.
