Greeks rendering to Caesar

Think! Taxes! Paid any recently?
This contribution on the BBC website deserves a wide coverage, so I'm doing my bit. I can think for myself  says this -

Here's a really novel idea. How about we ask the Greek people to start paying tax? They could start with simple taxes like income tax and VAT and then devise a few others! Anyone who has ever visited Greece knows what goes on. Most of the time you will not get a receipt in a restaurant or a bar. Why is that? A shortage of paper?! How were they allowed to get away with it for so long?

How indeed! Perhaps the very large gentleman portraying himself as the finance minister of Greece can tell us all.
