George Osborne, do you hear me? Make sure you have cut every financial tie that could possibly bind us to Greece. The place is just a hot version of Scotland and will never be more than a plate's throw from bankruptcy. Frankly, you'd be better off sending all our bank details to Nigeria.

If there are still 17 members of the Eurozone by the end of the year then I will eat my new telephone.

Dear Mr. Chalk,
Thank you for your comment. Unfortunately, since Gordon Brown signed the Lisbon Treaty, I am not allowed to make any decision affecting the British economy without reference to my EU masters. Although the UK doesn't have the Euro as its currency, we will still have to support it by bailing out Greece or the whole EU project will fall apart. We cannot risk that.

Even if I could act independently, the PM wouldn't allow me to do anything to jeopardise our own futures within the European superstate.

I trust you understand my situation? After all, what do the needs of 65 million people have to do with my own need to secure power in the new system and riches beyond avarice?
UnFaithfully yours,
George Quisling Osbourne

PS: might I suggest a bottle of Nuits St. Wogga Wogga to go with the telephone.
