Whatever you do, don't mention the war. Greece said what?!

From the UK Telegraph:
Theodoros Pangalos, deputy prime minister, said Germany had no right to reproach Greece for anything after it devastated the country under the Nazi occupation, which left 300,000 dead. "They took away the gold that was in the Bank of Greece, and they never gave it back. They shouldn't complain so much about stealing and not being very specific about economic dealings," he told the BBC.

Nice connection you make, there.

The wife and I are great fans of the old Fawlty Towers, by the way.
