Greece should not get bailout

Why are Germany and France bending over backwards to bail out Greece? Do Nicolas Sarkozy and Angela Merkel believe that, if they let Greece leave the euro, the whole thing will collapse?

Greece has allowed almost half its population to evade paying any tax and its civil servants retire at 49 on gold-plated pensions.

Is it any wonder the country is bankrupt? This was sheer recklessness and now the taxpayers of Germany and France are being punished for this stupidity.
