Greece's parties afraid of the truth

Greek Prime Minister Giorgos Papandreou has announced the founding of a parliamentary committee aimed at establishing who was responsible for the passing on of false data to the EU. The conservative daily Kathimerini doubts the effectiveness of the measure: "Because it is aimed at uncovering the actual facts and creating an efficient state structure it is probably uninteresting as far as the political parties' idea of the 'truth' is concerned. The war which will break out over the question of who falsified the data when and how is of much greater significance for our tottering political 'class'. ... The best thing for everyone would be if the parliamentary committee of economic affairs were entrusted with clearing up the data affair initially. This is, according to the constitution ... the permanent enquiry committee. The new committee is only for the eyes of the world, the media and the Europeans!"
