This final note on the way out. Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse for the Greeks, word out of Athens today is that police there have arrested a man on suspicion of stealing the personal data of two-thirds of the country’s population. And trying to sell it, to boot.

Addresses, tax ID numbers, the whole smash. Nine million files in all.
