“Spain is not Greece.”
Elena Salgado, Spanish Finance minister, Feb. 2010

“Portugal is not Greece.”
The Economist, 22nd April 2010.

“Ireland is not in ‘Greek Territory.”
Irish Finance Minister Brian Lenihan.

“Greece is not Ireland.”
George Papaconstantinou, Greek Finance minister, 8th November, 2010.

“Spain is neither Ireland nor Portugal.”
Elena Salgado, Spanish Finance minister, 16 November 2010.
