Greece’s voters returned a shocking 61 percent no in a historic referendum, rejecting a bailout proposal from the country’s international lenders on Sunday. European leaders are now waiting to see if Greece will leave the eurozone.

The BBC’s Theo Leggett is on the field in Frankfurt, Germany, where reactions have varied.

Leggett says people in Frankfurt express a fair amount of sympathy for the people of Greece, but not for the Greek politicians.

“They know it cannot be pleasant to be limited to withdrawing about thirty bucks a day, not being able to buy important items,” Leggett says. “But nevertheless most of the people I’ve been speaking to are pretty firm that ‘enough is enough,’ that German taxpayers should not be having to pay for the mistakes Greek governments have made in the past.”
