European Leaders Joust Ahead Of The G2007:53


Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou is trying to win over irate European leaders today, after persuading his cabinet to back a hugely-controversial referendum on the debt-crippled country's latest rescue package.

Papandreou is expected to face a grilling from German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Nicolas Sarkozy among others in Cannes in the French Riviera, ahead of the Group of 20 summit.

Meantime, Merkel is being praised for standing up to the banks, and French President Nicolas Sarkozy is telling British Prime Minister David Cameron to "shut up."
