    ADESMEFTOS TYPOS: "Pension at 67 with 'extra stamps'! Andreas Loverdos to announce the government's plan for the new retirement age on Tuesday".

    ELEFTHEROS TYPOS: "Papandreou's 'I said it, I unsaid it' cost us 825 million euros. We are having to pay dearly for the prime minister's delay in carrying out the things that [former New Democracy premier Costas Karamanlis] was saying before the elections."

    ELEFTHEROTYPIA: "The blacklisted benefits. Public sector: the special handouts to employees that the government wants to 'trim'".

    PROTO THEMA: "Family 'income indicator' of 35,000 euros. Will apply for every family of four with a house and car. Objective taxation system under the new law for those that have avoided taxes so far.

    REALNEWS: "'With our compliments, Mr. Christoforakos'! Wishes and gifts from politicians to 'Mr. Siemens'".

    RIZOSPASTIS: "Everyone to the PAME strike on Wednesday on February 10. Universal labour counterattack to the united anti-labour assault".

    TO VIMA: "Operation 'handcuffs' for prominent tax-dodgers and closure for businesses that break the law. Government wants arrests that make an example".
