An interesting and well tested pattern. Germany first messes with Greece and then it gets smashed by Great Britain.
In addition, it was a national choice against the globalization process. We just watched the end of the beginning of the rise of the national factor in politics and state affairs. Remember how Hitler tried to violently globalize the world, via the New Order concept and the panzer divisions, and the British stopped him. History is just repeating itself adjusting the scenarios accordingly.
