Head of radical leftist Syriza party Tsipras waves while leaving the party headquarters after winning the elections in AthensThe Greek election result is not a defeat of austerity but a defeat of failed economic plans and should act as a reminder to Britain that it needs to stick to what it is doing, Chancellor George Osborne said on Monday. Greek leftist leader Alexis Tsipras and his Syriza party swept to victory in a snap election on Sunday, promising that five years of austerity, "humiliation and suffering" imposed by international creditors were over. "People get tired of economic failure, they tired of rising unemployment ... what you see is not a defeat of austerity, it is a defeat of economic plans that don't work and in Britain we have got an economic plan that is working," Osborne told BBC radio.

"Today the Greek people have made history. Hope has made history," Tsipras said in his victory speech at a conference hall in central Athens.
