A White Cane Anyone?

Eh? Didn't see it coming!!!

Oh those Greeks!!! A recently elected mayor on the island of Zakynthos has discovered that quite a few of his constituents have been in on an elaborate scam. About 600 of them have been falsely declaring themselves blind so they can collect a nice monthly cheque from the government. Hmm, that’s about 2% of the population and include restaurant owners, shop keepers, farmers and even taxi drivers. Seems authorities had been turning a blind eye for over 10 years to those faking their claims. Now the spoil sport mayor (who happens to also be a lawyer) has ceased all benefit payments so they can thin out the blind herd. The crackdown has also come at a price, with 50 of the so called blind hurling eggs and yoghurt at the now unpopular major. Hmm, so does being blind drunk count?

Want sauce with that?
