Chaos in St Paul's and amongst the Greeks-Tuesday's papers

The Dean of St Paul's features on the front of many of the papers.

The Telegraph describes it as a national joke as it was plunged into disarray with the resignation of its dean amid mounting criticism of its handling of the protest camp on its doorstep.

The Times says that the Church of England was plunged into a crisis of leadership following the resignation adding that the Archbishop of Canterbury was facing criticism for his failure to intervene earlier in the protracted decision-making process over whether to evict demonstrators or to engage with them.

The protests outside St Paul's were knocked off the front pages by the latest from the Euro zone.The Guardian reporting that Greek prime minister, George Papandreou, stunned Europe's leaders after he proposed that his country should hold a referendum on the landmark European debt deal reached last week.

Meanwhile the Independent claims that the world faces many years of social unrest as its economies falter adding that

The international economy is on the brink of a deep new economic crisis that could cost millions of jobs.

The Mail adds that Europe's economic rescue package was in danger of collapse last night as Greece declared a shock referendum, Italy teetered on the brink of financial disaster and experts warned of a second recession and social unrest.

And there is more bad news in the FT which says that ministers fear the number of public-sector job losses will now be much larger than previously forecast

Away from the grim news,the Express reveals that the secret of what causes high blood pressure has been unlocked in a dramatic breakthrough that could save millions of lives every year.

Finally both the Mirror and the Sun feature celebrity,the Sun claims that X factor contestant Kitty Brucknell was suspected of racially abusing fellow singer Derry Mensah following a bust-up at a practice session.

Whilst the Mirror reports that former Spice Girl Mel B is furious at ex-husband Jimmy Gulzar after he allegedly held their daughter Phoenix Chi captive during a custody visit.
