I don't either. I understand from the side of Germany and the IMF, but not from Tsipras's. Unless he knows that this deal is doomed as well, and he is only buying time to build a bridge to a return to the drachma.

Tsipras never wanted the referendum to succeed in the first place - Syriza mismanaged negotiations, the Germans have been ferociously harsh with the terms of the bailout - this crisis is everyone's fault (some more than others though)
