So how’s Bonapartism working out for you?

You could say that the countdown has begun begun on Greece days as an ndependent nations…

The council of EU finance ministers said Athens must comply with austerity demands by March 16 or lose control over its own tax and spend policies altogether. It if fails to do so, the EU will itself impose cuts under the draconian Article 126.9 of the Lisbon Treaty in what would amount to economic suzerainty.

Of course, some might say that the very fact that the EU can take action in this manner would suggest that that particular train left the station long ago.
