image for Euro in new Greek Tragedy

After having agreed a record third Euro bailout for debt ridden Greece, a section of the Euro Monetary committee are now making very loud dissenting noises.

A Euro MP said "This is turning out to be more of a greek epic than Homer's Odysseus and the Greek Prime Minister is turning out to be just as cunning".

The Prime Minister for Greece is said to be very relieved at also getting his personal debts written off in the process as part of the new agreement. Ferrari are said to be very annoyed as PM George Papandreou had recently ordered and taken delivery of, three highly customised new cars on credit. A spokesman for Ferrari grumbled "Italy has it own money problems and this is just adding to it. We should go back to the Lira and ridiculous interest rates."

Various members of the Euro committee are now demanding very cut price or free holiday breaks to Greece for the people who are in the Euro zone as compensation for the bailout.

A spokesperson for the UK government was said to be rather grieved at the suggestion as the UK hadn't adopted the Euro, therefore he wouldn't get a free two week holiday villa in Greece.

A euro member said that Greece must be particulary happy about this as it meant that Greece would not get an influx of UK stag and hen party holidaymakers.
