Majority of German public want Greece out of the single currency

OVER half the German public want Greece booted out of the Eurozone, a hard-hitting poll revealed yesterday.

Anger towards the debt-ridden peripheral economy was felt most in Germany -- according to the YouGov survey -- where 58 per cent of respondents said that Greece should be removed from the single currency.

Nearly half (45 per cent) of French respondents also want Greece out of the Eurozone, with the same proportion of Brits agreeing with them – despite the UK not being a member.

Yet the crisis has not driven people in core Eurozone economies to oppose their membership.

Over half (53 per cent) of the French support staying in the Eurozone; 48 per cent of Germans want to remain in, compared to 44 per cent who want to withdraw.
