The Greek Minister for Finance is petrified at the prospects for the country

Finalists from Britain's Got Talent, Stavros Flattley and Son, are being sent in to Greece to help solve the country's economic crisis.

British Home Secretary Theresa Mayormaynot, has confirmed that the huge-personalitied gentleman and his son have been confirmed as the ideal candidates to lead Greece out of their current economic abyss.

Firstly, Stavros and his son have first hand experience of the money machine that is Britain's Got Talent, so should be able to translate their understanding into direct action for Greece.

Secondly, they are said to be the most likely candidates of anyone with a Greek connection to be able to lead the Greek Government, IMF, EEC, ITV, BBC, PTO, NBG and other great acronyms on a merry dance that would be far better value for money than the bankers and other financial creeps could ever expect to.

In accepting the challenge, Mr Stavros said that he was delighted to accept the challenge. He went on to say that the immediate steps he would be taking, in a sort of Irish-Greek foxtrot style, would be:

* institution of a plate-smashing tax with immediate effect
* premium rates of tax on tacky souvenirs of the Parthenon and Athenian Acropolis
* Greek islands to be auctioned off to Russian oligarchs and offered as private countries
* Duke of Edinburgh to do a series of expensive personal appearances with funds going straight to the IMF
* Ireland to become a Greek principality, except for parts of County Roscommon that nobody wants

President of FIFA, Sad Bladder was said to be upset FIFA couldn't earn a bung from the Flattleys.
