Everything in greece needs change, but sadly there are no real Greek Leaders, only the same, Fathers and now their Kids that messed up greece want to lead..Use an Airport money goes to Germany, use a Train money goes to Italy, use a Port money goes to China, Pay your taxes, money goes to pay debt..GREECE As usual gets nothing, because its lead by nothing parties.
