Without any hint of irony Greece's Finance Minister, Evangelos Venizelos, has rejected a parliamentary report which states that Greece's debt is out of control (no surprises there then).
Why did he reject the report?
He claimed that it lacks credibility:
"Yesterday's report lacks elements of credibility of other international reports ... all necessary measures will be taken to upgrade and improve the credibility of the work of the budget committee,"
The irony being that the independent parliamentary committee of experts, that issued the report, was in fact appointed by the Finance Ministry in 2010.
