Dozens of Greek municipal workers clashed with police today after breaking into a conference centre to tell a German minister to get lost.
They also shoved and threw coffee at German consul Wolfgang Hoelsche-Obermaier as he arrived at a summit of Greek and German mayors in Thessaloniki.
They then broke into the conference centre where German Deputy Labour minister Hans-Joachim Fuchtel was protected by riot police.
German Left party MP told the demonstrators: "It is not you who should pay the price for this crisis but the rich."
Riot police chased the protesters from building to building through the conference centre.
Lord Feldman says that he didn't call grassroots Tories "mad swivel-eyed loons" while his accusers stand by their stories that he did.
