Less than twelve hours after receiving notice of the European Central Bank to cut funding to Greek banks, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras answered vehemently, according to The Sleuth Journal.

In a post that seems directed at Mario Draghi but also to all those that put sticks on wheels, he replied: “Greece will no longer accept more orders, especially orders received by email,” he asserted from the Greek Parliament in the first session of the SYRIZA parliamentary group.

The Greek Prime Minister has insisted that he will put an end once and for allto the austerity policies of the EU and negotiate a new agreement for Greece.
It is time to move on, not only in Greece but in Europe,” proclaimed the Greek president.
In Athens, before the deputies of SYRIZA and after a tour of several European capitals, Tsipras said his government will not back down on its promises and that voters will not be fooled again: “Everyone can be sure that this Government will do what it says.
The IMF said it is willing to discuss their economic policy proposals, but until then avoided speculating about how it will affect its assistance programme.
Mr Tsipras took to Twitter yesterday to expand on his position: “We do not wish to burden European taxpayers in perpetuity w/new loans to . We’re seeking logical solutions,” he tweeted.
This is a story that won’t go away for a long time.
