In many respects Greece has more reason than the UK to be angry with the European Union, and to want to leave.

The anger shows in a pan-European survey published by the Pew Research Center earlier this month, in which Greeks top the table in their response to many of the questions asked.

More than 90% disapproved of the way the EU was handling economic issues and the migrant crisis.
