Moody's ratings agency has changed the Eurozone's outlook from stable to negative, warning it faces being downgraded.

That's despite relentless meetings between EU leaders, which have so far failed to deliver any solutions.

And a leaked email suggests that the Troika of international lenders want Greece - one of the most debt-stricken countries, to work six days a week and longer hours to fulfill their financial obligations.

Morten Messerschmidt, Danish MEP and member of the Freedom and Democracy group in the European Parliament, believes Greeks should exit the Eurozone to save themselves.

It's 'crunch time' for Greece right now - the German leader and French president are working out whether to grant Athens the 'breathing space' it says it needs to sort its finances out.

The country's been relying on international loans for over two years, but is struggling to meet its bailout conditions.

Meanwhile, Chancellor Merkel's allies in Berlin say 'a Greek exit wouldn't have a 'great impact' on the Eurozone'.

Investment advisor Patrick Young says, whether on not Greece is provided with more time, there's no chance it'll manage to get its economy back on track within the Eurozone.
