Referendum retraction?

Only yesterday, the BBC's Gavin Hewitt quoted George Papandreou as follows:

"We will not implement any programme by force," he said, "but only with the consent of the Greek people.

"This is our democratic tradition and we demand that it is also respected abroad."

Today it seems that he has been beaten into submission.

Finally, the Greek people have a good reason to riot. It will be interesting to see how they react.
