Greece's next PM will do 'nothing'


Greeks voters, angry at austerity, head to the polls on Sunday in their most critical, and uncertain, election in decades.

The Today programme's John Humphrys spoke to people in a refuge in Athens who have been made homeless and jobless by the economic crisis. Leo, a man seeking refuge, told John that it was essential to remain positive in spite of the turmoil: "Without hope you cannot endure having nothing in life."

Voters are set to punish the two main pro-bailout parties that are being held responsible for the country's dire economic straits.

"What is next week's prime minister doing for me? Nothing" said a man in the refuge. "This generation is lost," he explained, "lets hope the next generation can start climbing again".
