Tourists warned not to travel to Greece

30 July 2010

athens-greece Here’s some breaking madness for any of you who are hoping to holiday in Greece in the not-too-distant future. Sky News are reporting on Twitter that tourists are being warned to avoid the balmy country owing to the fact that everything’s going barmy.

Already crippled by economic meltdown, Greece is now in the grip of a petrol shortage and a strike by truck drivers. To top it all, a terrorist group has now declared that they are hell bent on turning the country ‘into a war zone.’

The group, who call themselves The Sect Of Revolutionaries or Rebel Sect (thanks to avid Bitterwallet reader '-]') have warned that they plan to attack police, businessmen, prison staff and journalists. A statement from them said: “We are at war with your democracy. Tourists must learn that Greece is no longer a safe haven of capitalism. We intend to turn it into a war zone.”

EDIT: As yet, no official warning has appeared from the Foreign & Commonwealth Office website, but you should probably make that your first port of call for updates.

More news as we get it…

    Fuck that, nothing like the London prices I paid there last year. Fuckin 4-5 Euros a pint? When a Euro is equivalent to 95p? I'd extend the warning to not go anywhere in the Euro. Robbing bastards.

    Terrorists my arse. They don't describe themselves as a "sect of revolutionaries". They are called The "Sect of Revolutionaries" (or Rebel Sect).

    "Sky News are reporting on Twitter " They should try reporting on the sky news channel instead.
