London PM’s daughter left in pub: Prime Minister David Cameron prompted snickers across the nation this week after The Sun reported that he left his 8-year-old daughter in a pub. A few months ago, Cameron and his wife left a lunch in separate cars, and each thought little Nancy was with the other. When Cameron returned for her, she was happily helping out the pub staff. The Sun is part of Rupert Murdoch’s media company, which is currently under investigation for hacking into voicemails. Cameron, who set up the inquiry, is to testify before it this week. The Sun refused to say how it found out about the pub incident.

Athens Violent politician sues: A Greek far-right politician who caused a national furor last week by attacking two leftist female politicians on live television is now suing the women for defamation. Ilias Kasidiaris, 31, of the Golden Dawn party, threw a glass of water on Rena Dourou of the Syriza party and then smacked Communist Liana Kanelli three times in the face. He now says he is the injured party because the women called him a fascist. Had Kasidiaris been arrested right away, he would have been tried immediately for misdemeanor assault. But he went into hiding for four days, and under Greek law, he now won’t go on trial for months or even years. The attack appalled Greeks of all political persuasions, and it’s likely to hurt Golden Dawn’s support in next week’s crucial elections, which could determine Greece’s future in the euro zone.
