Greece to get EU bailout referendum

Greece's Prime Minister, George Papandreou, has announced a national referendum on the €1tr bailout package for Greece and the €uro.

In stark contrast to Cast Iron Dave's three line whip, threatening MPs with sanctions to prevent them voting to allow us a referendum, Papandreou said that he trusts the Greek people to make the right decision and will stand by it:
We trust citizens, we believe in their judgment, we believe in their decision. In a few weeks the (EU) agreement will be a new loan contract… we must spell out if we are accepting it or if we are rejecting it.
Pop over to the Autonomous Mind blog for more information and sign Nikki Sinclaire MEP's EU-style "we don't like the first answer so we'll ask again" petition for an EU referendum.
