Greece's Dark Knight returns

Apparently, ex-law and order minister, Mihalis Chrysohoidis was too busy fighting crime to even read the terms of recent austerity legislation before signing it. The measures, which have brought about an economic crisis unprecedented in modern Greek history are loathed by the overwhelming majority of Greeks and are now being seen internationally as a failure. The admission made during a TV interview has been seen as a crude, not to mention misguided attempts by the minister to distance himself from previous government policies which have cost his PASOK party more than 30 points in the polls over the last two years.

Just when you think that the Greek political caste can fall no lower in the eyes of the public they manage to drop yet another bomb shell.
