    The Wednesday edition of Athens' dailies at a glance

    The new tax measures and the relevant committee of experts' recommendations on changes in the list of professions designated as "heavy and hazardous" were the main front-page items in Wednesday's dailies.

    ADESMEFTOS TYPOS: "September 3 (anniversary of founding of the main opposition PASOK party) for laughs - George's (PASOK leader Papandreou) ‚gift‚ to the government with the 'bubble' on the adulteration", of the vote (in parliament) on revision of the Constitution (on May 27), alleged evidence of which PASOK recently presented in a videotape.

    APOGEVMATINI: "The new list of 'heavy and hazardous' professions - Which professions are being taken off the list, and the professions that are being entered in the list's four categories".

    AVGHI: "Partial retreat after the outcry over the abolition of the tax-free ceiling of professionals".

    AVRIANI: "Bubble no. 2 by 25 PASOK deputies - The public laughing at George's opposition gaffes", referring to a question tabled in parliament by 25 PASOK MPs "attempting to implicate merchant marine minister, Aegean and island policy minister George Voulgarakis and his wife in supposedly suspicious real estate transactions", and adding that they made a mess of it as they "mixed up the companies and attributed to the minister a company that has a different owner".

    CHORA: "Fiesta with fireworks - PASOK celebrating September 3 with (political) fireworks" instead of focusing on the people's problems.

    ELEFTHEROS TYPOS: "Incentives for withdrawal of (old technology) cars".

    ELEFTHEROTYPIA: "Explosions caused by video 'bomb' - Clash between government and PASOK".

    ESTIA: "Unacceptable image of parliament - The quality of democracy being downgraded".

    ETHNOS: " 'Midnight Express' in the Aegean - Turkish patrol boats disembarking illegal immigrants on the Greek islands", adding that members of the Turkish authorities are involved in the powerful people trafficking rings, citing an incident on August 19 off of Lesvos island, as "unseen passageways have opened on the Turkish coasts for channeling economic immigrants seeking a better life to Greece and from there to the rest of Europe".

    KATHIMERINI: "Alogoskoufis (economy and finance minister), under pressure, makes adjustments (to new tax measures) to remove the injustices on the tax-free ceilings".

    NIKI: "Tempest in ND over Voulgarakis - The minister made a mess with business on shore".

    RIZOSPASTIS: "Children without right to attend (public) daycare centers/nursery schools - Thousands of working class families in despair, with the blame on ND and PASOK".

    TA NEA: "Full-speed...backwards (by Alogoskoufis) after the outcry".

    TO VIMA: "The new taxes changing...before they even enter into force - Last-minute amendments".

    VRADYNI: "Withdrawal of cars and...taxes - Alogoskoufis tabled changes to the tax bill".
