It's not called a Greek tragedy for nothing

I suppose it's kind of inevitable that the scruffy populace are rioting in the streets, but it now looks like Greece's government can't even agree on the outcome - their deputy finance minister has resigned, and so has their economic ministry's secretary general.

In a splendid display of shambolic discord, it also looks like the Syriza coalition (who hold a 162/300 seat parliamentary majority) will actually be reliant on the opposition party to pass the required legislation, as 30 members of Syriza themselves oppose it.  I suppose a certain degree of discord was always going to be inevitable, but this is what happens when you form minority coalition governments - the recent Australian Labor government being a textbook example.
