Gorgeous model Georgia Salpa fears the country she calls her 'second home' will go down in history as the country who crashed Europe. The sexy Dubliner, who is half Greek, also believes the country's Prime Minister George Papandreou won't hang on to power for much longer.
"The eyes of Europe are all on Greece at the minute and itís in a very serious and vulnerable position," she said. "It doesn't look like the referendum is going to go ahead now but if it did, the Greeks would probably have said 'No' and this would have plunged the whole thing into further chaos-leaving countries like Ireland feeling the pressure," he believed. "I doubt if he (Papandreou) will win the support of his government today either, he is like Brian Cowen last year in the sense he is hanging on to power for dear life."
Greek Opposition leaders have called for a transitional government to keep the debt deal afloat and to call snap elections and Georgia reckons this could most likely happen. "I think their (Greeks) democratic vote is important so it would be better if they voted in an election and this I think could very well happen, as I can't see the Prime Minister winning a confidence motion."
The 26-year-old stunner spent many a happy summer in Athens, where her father Nikos was born and travels to the Greek Capital regularly. "I absolutely love Greece it's my second home. Every summer since I was a kid my friend Sally and I would head out there and have the time of our lives. I can speak Greek and I adore their food, it just pains me to see what is happening to the financial state of their country," she said.
Georgia believes Greece will experience the same winter as we did last year with an embattled prime minister, a bailout and the eyes of Europe watching us from afar. "It's a similar situation to us, but the Greeks are a proud nation and they won't back down especially when they feel their voices aren't being heard."
She admits the Greeks are similar to the Irish in that they have a natural resilience and take whatever is thrown at them. "They are fighters and like us, are good people, who have strong family values and take pride in their country. I'm just worried that Greece could be looked down upon and seen as the country which crashed the Eurozone and brought on a second recession and I really hope it doesn't come to that," she said.
