An Amazing Apology From George Papandreou

Debate is happening inside the Greek parliament on the latest reform measures ahead of a planned vote tomorrow. The cabinet had approved these brand new measures yesterday.

It’s looking like another classic “before the Asian markets open” kind of weekends.

Anyway, former Prime Minister and PASOK party leader George Papandreou spoke this morning, and gave one of the best apologies we’ve heard in politics.

And here’s a great line from conservative leader Samaras.

Anyway, should be a long and interesting weekend.

Hopes are very dim that this is going to work out well.
