Despite another series of meetings on the 25 June 2015, there remained no deal between Greece and its creditors. Kevin Featherstone writes that Greece now stands on the brink of a catastrophe brought on by European myopia and Greek populism. He argues that whatever agreement emerges from the negotiations, it will clearly contradict the promises made by Syriza during the 2015 election, with no end to austerity and the country holding on to its status in the Eurozone by its fingertips.
