And something tells me there was a lot of heavy breathing during this telephone conversation, too.
Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras made an uncexpected telephone call to German Chancellor Angela Merkel that nobody wants to comment about officially.
Bild newspaper reported on Monday that Tsipras had called Merkel as well as Euro group head Jeroen Dijsselbloem to try to convince them of the need for more help for Greece and for the need for an emergency meeting of EU leaders this week.
Bild said the reason for the call is that the Greek government has run out of money
“It’s on fire and there’s no water there to put out the fire. The situation is more than dramatic.”
