To answer my own question - apparently "Overseas transfers of cash [are] prohibited, except for vital, pre-approved commercial transactions". So it is now too late :(

Is there anything to prevent someone transferring their money? If not, then wouldn't most people just send everything to a relative, trusted friend or (if possible) a new account outside Greece?

It can still depend how mizhog is introduced and treated. Is it "This is mizhog my new boyfriend" or "This is mizhog"? Arm round shoulder (maybe more) or just "it's your round now".

I don't miss him but I feel sorry for him - not for losing the election but for having ex-colleagues turn so quickly on him; they really have no shame.

Do you need another Labour (ex-)politician to say "I knew we would lose" or "We need to move to the left/right/centre"? There have been more than enough of them already.
