Tsipras abused at the EU Parliament by MEPs

Greek Prime Minister, Alexis Tsipras, was given a mixed reception in the EU Parliament today receiving both cheers and boos from MEPs.

The leader of the European Peoples' Party, Manfred Weber, told Tsipras that he was "destroying confidence in Europe" whilst Guy Verhofstadt, the former Prime Minister of Belgium and now a federalist Liberal MEP, told Tsipras he was "angry" and called him "an electoral accident".

It wasn't all abuse for Tsipras though, he got words of encouragement from MEPs including Nigel Farage whilst others took the opportunity to denounce the EU.

Greece has been given until Sunday to come up with an acceptable proposal to access more loans it can't afford to pay back or it will be ejected from the €uro. Unfortunately, it looks like Alexis Tsipras isn't as brave as everyone thought he was and Greece will commit to implementing more EU austerity measures tomorrow.
