    Germans say euro zone may have to expel Greece!

    BERLIN (Reuters) - A majority of Germans want debt-ridden Greece to be thrown out of the euro zone if necessary and more than two-thirds oppose handing Athens billions of euros in credit, a poll published on Sunday showed.

    Vocal opposition to aid for Greece from members of Chancellor Angela Merkel's coalition also grew at the weekend with several senior politicians expressing skepticism, especially as Germany's own recovery is fragile.

    The Emnid poll for Bild am Sonntag newspaper showed 53 percent of Germans asked said the European Union should, if necessary, expel Greece from the euro zone.

    Athens has struggled to convince investors it is tackling its debt crisis and markets are nervous about a default.

    Can creditors take it to bankruptcy court and make it sell off assets to recover debts?

    I might consider buying the golden gate bridge... People always want to sell me a bridge. It is one I might actually want.
