Shock at the G20 Summit in Cannes as the Greek Prime Minister disturbed world order by deciding to ask the Greek people what they thought about the deal he made made with Europe over their future.
'We all believe in democracy' blurted Sarkorsy 'but this is going too far! For the Greeks to want a referendum is to wish goodbye to real politics.'
Angela Merkel was also upset by the idea of Greek democracy: 'They should study German history not Greek before deciding to ask the people anything' she declared.
David Cameron, who was busy flashing his smile at awaiting cameras confessed he didn't understand what all the worry was about. 'Let the Greeks have a referendum' he said 'if it's not the right result they can have another one until we get the result everyone wants.'
Constantine Philapodopolous, a Greek commentator on world affairs, reminded the G20 that Greece was the first country to try democracy. 'And look where that's ended up' shouted Barrack Obama 'we should all look to Chinese philosophy not Greek.'
The enigmatic Chinese chief at the G20 asked a neighbour what democracy was. 'It is telling the people what they want' said Cameron.
'Oh that's all right, but you don't need a referendum or an election for that!' exclaimed the man from China.
