Greece will begin its autumn Covid-19 vaccination campaign on Monday, October 3, rolling out new bivalent boosters targeting the Omicron BA.4/BA.5 subvariants.

Requirement to fit snow chains on Greek roads has been clarified updated, now only necessary to fit them when relevant competent authority decides so. There's a bit more to it, such as whether snow chains should be fitted to front wheels / rear wheels / all wheels and whether the law applies to hire cars. Whether / how the law will be applied on Kef...

Going back twenty years or so one of the car hire firms in Skala, either Etam or Greekstones, I think, advertised snow chains as one of the extras with their cars. It did seem rather bizarre in the blazing sun.

Google to build its first cloud region in Greece

Alphabet Inc's Google will set up its first cloud region in Greece, the company said on Thursday, giving a boost to the country's efforts to become a world cloud computing hub.

The deal is estimated to contribute some 2.2 billion euros ($2.13 billion) to Greece's economic output and create some 20,000 jobs by 2030, Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said.

‘Return to austerity’: Almost £50bn of cuts needed to fund tax breaks for rich, economists warn
Huge ‘unforced error’ set to push Britain back to George Osborne-era cuts, says think tank

The prospect of austerity has sparked anger among unions and campaigners, who warned the cuts to pay and services would be “an act of national vandalism and a huge betrayal of the British people”.

A group of 18 trade unions wrote to the PM demanding a “cast iron assurance” she would honour a Tory leadership campaign pledge that there would be no cuts to public services, already struggling with the impact of inflation.

“Frontline services are already at breaking point. They must not be sacrificed to make the top 1 per cent even richer,” said the letter signed by the TUC’s Frances O’Grady, Unite’s Sharon Graham and others. “We won’t allow the social fabric of this country to be destroyed.”
