Nigel Farage becomes popular in Greece after outburst against the PM
Ukip leader claims he received deluge of support after giving Antonis Samaras a dressing down in European parliament

On Saturday even Syriza had a kind word for Ukip. "Of course, we have nothing whatsoever in common with them," Panos Skourletis, Syriza's spokesman, said. "But sometimes your opponents do tell the truth, you know. More and more people are beginning to see that Greece was sacrificed to save the EU, and that what has happened was wrong."

Sounds as though the number of external flights to Greece as a whole will increase fairly significantly this year. Looks like low-cost carrier Transavia will be flying Amsterdam-Kef, not as yet listed under the 'country information' on their website but there's a clickable link on the destination map, looks like they'll be flying here mid-June - early October.

The practical information about Kef isn't that practical, some of the places to see are one hell of a day trip but understandable as there doesn't appear to be much to do on Kef!

Early days, Transavia customers will have a great time when they get here, even if they just relax on the beach

What? Gordon Brown does not have a mistress?
French journalists are fairly unbothered that François Hollande may be having an affair. One was more shocked to find out that a leading British statesman did not sleep around

Most of the chamber is pretty empty though the comments are obviously for UK consumption more than anything else.  Very noticeable that the few who are there try very hard to appear not to be listening but one or two can't resist a smirk.
