    ATTEMPTS TO END THE POLITICAL CRISIS IN GREECE ARE CONTINUING, AMID WARNINGS FROM POLITICAL LEADERS THAT THE CRISIS IS BECOMING A GROWING DANGER FOR THE NATION.

    POLITICAL LEADERS AND FORMER PRIME MINISTERS HAVE MET TWICE THIS WEEK AS AN ADVISORY CROWN COUNCIL TO TRY AND HELP KING CONSTANTINE END THE POLITICAL DEADLOCK, NOW IN ITS SEVENTH WEEK.

    THE SECOND MEETING OF THE ADVISORY COUNCIL YESTERDAY (THURSDAY) ENDED IN COMPLETE DISAGREEMENT AFTER MORE THAN SIX HOURS OF WRANGLING AND DEBATING. THE TEN MEN ATTENDING THE MEETING LATER ADMITTED THEIR VIEWS COULD NOT BE RECONCILED. ONE OF THE LEADERS AFTER THE MEETING DESCRIBED THE SITUATION AS EXTREMELY CRUCIAL.

    MR PAPANDREOU, WHOSE RESIGNATION AFTER A DISAGREEMENT WITH KING CONSTANTINE SPARKED OFF THE TROUBLE, IS INSISTING THAT A CARETAKER CABINET BE APPOINTED BUT THAT GENERAL ELECTIONS BE HELD WITHIN FORTY FIVE DAYS. OTHER POLITICAL LEADERS HAVE SAID THEY CANNOT AGREE TO THIS PROPOSITION.

    MEANWHILE, PUBLIC TRANSPORT IN THE GREEK CAPITAL, ATHENS, CAME TO A STANDSTILL YESTERDAY WHEN BUS CREWS WENT ON STRIKE AS A MARK OF SUPPORT FOR MR PAPANDREOU AND IN PROTEST AGAINST KING CONSTANTINE'S ATTITUDE. ARMY TRUCKS WERE EMPLOYED TO OPERATE BUS SERVICES IN THE CITY.

    LAST NIGHT THERE WAS A FURTHER DEMONSTRATION IN THE CITY IN FAVOUR OF MR PAPANDREOU - AN ALMOST DAILY EVENT IN ATHENS SINCE THE CRISIS BEGAN.
