Furby's Gospel: MANY A SLIP IN GREECE.

Byline: KEVAN FURBANK

I AM trying to work out precisely why the Greeks have arrested a bunch of British planespotters and accused them of being spies.

Just what on earth is there in Greece to spy on?

It's not as if the country is well-known for producing top secret weaponry, or supersonic Stealth jet fighters.

I don't recall Q telling 007 in the Bond films: "Careful with that, it's the latest Greek sportscar with built-in rocket launcher, flame-thrower and underwear-remover."

Perhaps the errant Brits had spotted a secret new kebab recipe. Or a Greek coach with no rust on it. Or a car that isn't a death trap.

Or a Greek salad that won't give you a funny tummy as soon as you get home.

Another mystery is what the Brits were doing there in the first place. As someone who has been to Greece and heartily despises it, I could have told them it would all end in tears.
