Tsipras must make concessions

The Greek government cannot expect many concessions from the EU partners and should be more willing to accommodate their demands, the conservative EU-parlamentarian Brian Hayes urges in the conservative daily Irish Independent: "It should be in everyone's interest that Greece stays in the eurozone. We want to see them get through this crisis and there is clear support from European partners. But there will not be a deal at any cost to the European taxpayers. The creditor countries have limited room to make concessions. We should not forget that any new programme will have to go before national parliaments. ... Mr Tsipras and his government should start to realise that referring back to Syriza's electoral promises is no longer an option in these negotiations."
