Unelected EU chief official JC Juncker and MEP M Schulz, voted 'President of the MEPs' by his colleagues, are left looking like prats this morning over their previous Greek pronouncements.
Juncker claimed a 'No' vote would be a rejection of the EU, a view not shared by the democratically elected President of France, to name one. Juncker now faces having to eat his words as the elected leaders of the EU's nation states work out how to keep Greece in the club.
Schulz was insisting yesterday that a 'No' vote meant automatic expulsion from the Eurozone; he now faces having to admit talking bollocks as EU nations go all-out to find a way of retaining Greek membership of the currency zone.
Most of all, these unelected, anti-democratic Brussels bureaucrats have had a full load of democracy fired at them through both barrels - and they hate it. They themselves have no electoral or popular mandate, and they resent any elected politician that does. Greece's experiment in direct democracy was a denial of everything the EU Federation stands for.
And as much as these unelected Euro officials may spitefully wish misery and poverty on the people of Greece, I suspect that Europe's democratically elected leaders may have a different view. Let's see what the next 48 hours brings.
