The 'no' vote in Greece is a vote for true recognition of democracy at its finest - in the very birthplace of democracy itself - says UKIP's East Midlands MEP Margot Parker.
As news sinks in of the Greek rejection of the terms of an international bailout, Mrs Parker said: "I feel desperately sorry for the position the Greek people are in but I applaud them for sticking up for their country.
"I condemn the EU's efforts to impose more austerity in Greece - the people never voted for it and certainly didn't deserve it.
"All across the Europe we see anger and despair at the way the EU operates, and we will now see nation after nation forced to reconsider the nature of its relationship with the EU - they had this coming and it is the start of the unravelling of the entire EU project."
