Greek debt tragedy: 'Slow agonizing death of the Euro'

The Greek Prime Minister is facing a crucial confidence vote in parliament. It will determine whether he'll be able to secure another injection of cash from the EU, and save the country from plunging into deeper crisis.

On Monday, EU finance ministers piled further pressure on Greece. They gave Athens two weeks to pass fresh budget cuts and tax increases, conditions that must be met to secure a previously agreed installment of twelve billion euro. MEP William Dartmouth, whose UK Independence Party wants Britain out of the EU, says the uncertainty over the next payment for Greece, is understandable.
