I've been saying for a while that there is no taboo surrounding island sales - past Greek governments have contemplated this even when the country was not looking the Grim Reaper in the eye.
Now the Guardian reports that the Greek Government is seriously considering the sale of state property on islands (including some of the lesser islands themselves). Even parts of Mykonos are not exempt.
I for one am 100% in support. Remember, selling an island does not make it any less a part of Greece - Greek law still applies, and the Greek state holds as much power over a private island as it does over central Athens.
Except now, somebody else beside the Greek government can pay for much-needed infrastructure: from sanitation, electricity and broadband to schools and hospitals if enough people turn up.
As a matter of priority, I would start selling off crappy little bits of rock near the Turkish coast. A wall of foreigners would be a better guarantee against invasion than a thicket of missile arrays - and it make, rather than cost, money.
