GREECE / EU : Media Rails Over Pay/Perks For 'Princes Of Parliament'.


      The economic hits keep coming in Athens...against ordinary citizens.
     After a draft document that allowed officials to cut the lavish pay and perks of parliamentary clerks surfaced...dozens of them...angered by the threat of cuts...stormed off the job...even tussling with the media.
     The media revealed that many of the 1,300 workers were protected from sacking...and were friends and/or family of politicians.
      A newspaper has dubbed them: 'The Princes of Parliament.'
