Greek unemployment rose to 25.4pc in August. Youth unemployment rose to 58%.

It is certainly not going to improve in any meaningful way for years to come. This is what happens when you lock into the wrong currency and block the escape routes – or join a “burning building with no exits” in the words of William Hague.
