Greek PM has phone line cut off
The prime minister of Greece has just had his telephone line cut off for not paying his bills. A technician mistakenly cut off the phone line of George Papandreou while trying to cut off a different customer for not paying his bills.
The technician says that the customer’s number was one digit different to the prime minister’s number which is what led to the confusion. The telecoms firm OTE say that this mistake was not spotted immediately and apologise for any problems they may have caused.
