Greece’s new finance minister entered the fray for the first time on Tuesday and clearly didn’t want to alienate his euro zone colleagues.

Carrying notes into the emergency eurogroup meeting Euclid Tsakalotos had written a reminder which read “No Triumphalism” possibly thinking that after Sunday’s referendum win he might come across as smug.

His replacement of the more abrasive Yanis Varoufakis may have been welcomed but the lack of new proposals wasn’t.

Belgium’s finance minister said : “I have the strong impression there were 18 of us who felt the urgency of the situation and there was one who didn’t.”
