Here’s an odd one.

Evidently British tourists are frantically booking discounted holidays to Greece. Whilst this is great news for the Greek economy, it also appears that many companies in Greece are preparing themselves for a summer of rioting and disturbances.

It is said that Dixons, which owns Greek loss making chain Kotsovolos has been ordering security shutters to protect it’s stock. After all, which genuine rioter in their right mind, wouldn’t want to nab a 60 inch telly or a couple of iPads for nothing?

So where does this leave the British tourist? Well, truthfully it’s not likely to impact them as long as they’re not staying in Athens. Surely greek islanders will be open for tourism, with welcoming arms all summer, as long as you’re not German.

Nevertheless, it’s food for thought.
