Finance Minister Yannis Stournaras on Monday left open the possibility of reducing tax on heating oil, provided it would still limit tax evasion.

"If we can combat smuggling in maritime fuel, then we can reduce tax on heating oil", Stournaras told private TV channel Skai. He also said that VAT in food services will not return to 23 percent this year and that the government will seek to keep it at 13 percent in the coming years.

On the dog story Metro also shows a pic and a vid of a dog riding on what it describes as a turtle - but pretty obviously a tortoise:
