Ashley Fox, leader of Britain's Conservative MEPs, called for caution following today's announcement of a "deal" in Brussels on Greece.

He said: "Let's not get over-excited. Only the most cock-eyed optimist would view this agreement with any great sense of reassurance. Nobody gains from a dishonest fudge.

"Last Sunday the Greek people rejected a bail-out proposal much less rigorous than this. Now they are being force-fed humble pie.

"Greece's people and economy are being sacrificed to preserve the euro.

"The best interests of both would be served by an orderly exit from the euro."
