Tourists warned not to travel to 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.
