Eurozone's ultimatum to Greece: put up or get out
Greece last night agreed to hold an early referendum on the Eurozone crisis and to make the vote a simple question of whether Greeks wanted to remain in the euro after France and Germany warned that it would not receive bailout funds without doing so.
The Greek Prime Minister, George Papandreou, who stunned European capitals by announcing the referendum earlier this week, was placed under intense pressure in emergency talks that carried on late into the night on the eve of the G20 summit in Cannes.
He agreed to bring forward the referendum to early next month - 4 or 5 December - and to ask the Greek people to decide on what would amount to a simple "in or out" question.
