Cameron announces Britain ready to launch airstrikes against Syriza in Greece

This is satire, but historically it’s literally accurate. It was military action taken to recover unpaid debts owed by Egypt in 1880 that led to the country becoming a British protectorate. Similar tactics were used to enforce British suzerainty over Persia in the 19th as the country became similarly indebted to British financiers for various modernisation programmes under the Qajar shahs.

Mr Cameron told NBC News in an interview last night, “This is a fight…
