World leaders in crisis talks and central banks poised to act as fears over Greek election leave euro teetering on brink-



By Jason Groves and Hugo Duncan





David Cameron held crisis talks with eurozone leaders last night amid mounting speculation that the world’s central banks are poised to launch a massive financial intervention after Sunday’s Greek elections.

The Prime Minister used a video conference call with the leaders of France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the EU to draw up a co-ordinated response to the potentially disastrous fallout from the poll.

What he does specifically identify is that “their hearts were set upon gold, and upon silver, and upon all manner of fine goods.” It appears that by “idols” he meant money and fancy stuff. It’s not surprising that a culture that worships money quickly degenerates into a rough-and-tumble aristocracy of deservedness and earned privilege, despising the infirm as disposable.
