The Greek state, which until the latest bailout wasn't able to pay civil servants because it couldn't borrow any more brass, wants its citizens to vote for tighter fiscal control. Not a bad plan given that they will likely go on strike otherwise and they also seem to have the Euro zone over a barrel - if Greece falls over it could drag down Italy and Spain. At the same time some of our MPs think that this is a good time to ask that we are given preferential treatment by the EU even though we're not chipping in to help maintain the single currency. Funny old world innit?
