Hello people, got a first year uni research report to do and I've decided on a question 'The sustainability of the European Union without the participation of Greece'.

I've made a Survey on 'SurveyMonkey' and just have 6 simple multiple choice questions.

If anyone would like to answer them, that would be great, and any advice on tweaking/re-wording would be much appreciated!!

Survey not submitting - getting an error saying need to select one of the options. & q5 - hasn't the ECB already bought tons of Greek debt (and Portugese/Spainish/ Italian and Irish)?

I think you'll find that the ECB has very much not acted as a lender of last resort so far.A large proportion of Greece's debt is held by French banks,IIRC,which was one of the main reasons that France's own credit rating was downgraded recently.

Yeah this is pretty much why I stuck the question in there.

Sorry about the survey, it was working originally, and it should be up and running again now so if anyone could find a few minutes that'd be great!!

ECB has around €45bn of Greek govt bond exposure.

I don't think that contradicts anything I said above.

Unfortunately for the people of Greece they are going to have to bend over and receive a large portion of their most famous export.


Feel free to use that in your essay but I want a credit in the references section.

Thanks to everyone that filled it out, could still do with a few more people taking part, so if anyone has any spare time it only takes a few mins! :)
