Zero Hedge will not report on any of today’s so-called Greece bailout news, because a) this is not news and b) Greece will still go bankrupt. According to latest polls, 53% of Germans oppose the bailout, with just 39% approving it. Guess what – same thing in Greece: per Reuters, “Opinion polls show the public opposes the measures and more than half of those asked in a recent survey said they would join protests against them.” In other news, Greece has just expressed its appreciation of bankers and the European Commission, who as of noon today run the country, by blowing up an Athens HSBC branch.

From Reuters:

A bomb exploded at a branch of HSBC bank in Athens on Sunday, damaging the entrance but causing no injuries, police said.

“It appears a home-made bomb comprised of gas canisters and fuel caused small damage to the bank’s facade,” a police official said.

Gas canister bomb attacks are common in Athens and are usually staged by leftist and anarchist groups against business and political targets.

Sunday’s bombing against the U.K.-based banking group was the first since the Socialist government announced tough new austerity measures in exchange for international aid to cope with a debt crisis.

With Greek retirement age just raised from 53 to something like infinity +1, something tells us all foreign bank deposit branches are about to vamoose out of the bankrupt country.
