2.56pm: The Financial Times is also reporting that the Greek government is wobbling ahead of this afternoon's cabinet meeting. From the FT's live blog: "Forget the referendum and even the vote of confidence. The government could crumble tonight," says one veteran socialist. That follows the call from six MPs for George Papandreou to step down as prime minister. 1.53pm: The six MPs who have called for George Papandreou's resignation are currently holding talks with the parliament's president Fillipos Petsalinikos, Helena Smith reports from Athens. Rumour is rife that they, too, will break away from the ruling Pasok party and proclaim themselves independents which would rob Papandreou of a working majority in the 300-seat House. "It's all over. The government is about to collapse," said an official. http://www.guardian.co.uk/business/blog/2011/nov/01/european-debt-crisis-greece-referendum What happens if the Greek govt collapses? No more referendum? What a shitshow.
