Theresa May warns Britain could become next Greece

    Prime Minister Theresa May today refused to bend to calls to lift the cap on public sector pay as she warned that any reversal of her government's austerity agenda would risk Britain turning into Greece. Her cabinet has this week been embroiled in a public argument about whether the freeze to public sector pay rises should be axed following the Conservative Party's failure to win a majority in last months' election.

Asked about the cap, May claimed that Britain would end up in an economic crisis similar to tha...
