There are riots in Greece. It seems so unlikely.

I hate the way the papers always report that the Foreign Office have advised this or that to travellers to the country, as if Greece was up there with the likes of Somalia or Afghanistan. Like they would basically classify all countries with a bit of trouble as Those Crazy Foreigners, Why Don't You Go To Gibraltar Instead (They Have British Bobbies There You Know). To be fair they did say "travellers to Athens" so hopefully everyone gets that it's not the whole country, just some trouble in the cities. Christ, we've had riots in this country! Remember the Poll Tax riots? And the Home Office never went ooh, watch yourself in Manchester or London this week, it's really kicking off.
