Mish/ Mike Shedlock – Germany Buckles On Greece Already; Advantage Syriza – 8 January 2015

MishMikeShedlockNow that Germany’s ridiculous bluff  that “Greece does not matter any more” failed to produce the desired reaction, German Lawmakers Say Greek Debt Talks Possible After Vote.

Germany is leaving the door open to discussing debt relief with Greece’s next government, lawmakers in Chancellor Angela Merkel’s coalition said, signaling a more flexible stance than her administration has taken publicly.

While writing off Greek debt isn’t on the table, talks on easing the repayment terms on aid that Greece received from European governments are possible after the country’s parliamentary elections on Jan. 25, the lawmakers from Germany’s two biggest governing parties said. The condition is that Greece sticks to its austerity commitments, they said.
