Greece has basically two choices:
1. achieve budget surplus and start to really pay back its dept.
2. go bankrupt, achieve budget balance and restart the failed state of Greece.
Budget deficit and excess loaning is not an option any more.
If leftists win to form the cabinet greeks are likely to choose the second option. So what are the consequences of choosing to go bankrupt? Ceding territory?

Just lack of credit, I guess.

The rest depends on the abilities to stay within the balanced budget.

You've forgotten choice number 3: Slice the country up in 4 parts and give them to Macedonia, Albania, Bulgaria, and Turkey. This is the most likely scenario to become reality.

If territories are to be given to repay the debt they are to be given to the nations that are themselves able to pay. Albania??? Must be Germany! Let them fairly calculate the market cost of square mile of one of the islands and pass it to germans, and let them deal with the creditors.
The humble loss of credit will doubtedly satisfy people who helped the greeks with money and are to come away with nothing in return.

I'm sure you're right. I'm just delirious with joy at the possibility of Grease's cultural "enemies" getting a chance to slice the place up, take what they want, and throw the rest to the goats.
