Greek President Karolos Papoulias has called another  meeting of  party leaders  because they have failed to agree on who will lead the country’s interim government.

Prime Minister Papandreou and opposition leader Antonis Samaras cannot reach any sort of compromise  which means that the political high drama of the last few days has now degenerated into farce.

Soon after the meeting began, Georgios Karatzaferis, head of Greece’s far-right Laos Party  stormed out, accusing all of Greece’s political leaders of “playing tactical games.”

The Greek farce is set to continue but at least it is providing an amusing diversion  – in counterpoint to the storm which is gradually engulfing Italy.
