UK based Cypriots proudly fly the flag of the RoC, with usage of the Greek flag in decline.

Is he really Greek? Doesn't he claim to be non-Greek indigenous Cypriot to quote Denktash "the only truly Cypriot species on the island was the native donkey". So you mean to tell me Boom-Boom isn't a donkey!

Ahhhh, Mr Ed! Have you heard the bad news? Greece will most likely keep the common currency, which means Kalamarides and Kyproi will continue to be confused as the same people as per your interpration.... :lol: :lol:

Now, where in the UK do you actually live? The Isle of Man? Or is it Gernsey? Because wherever it is, you must be the only Cypriot and thus isolated from the rest of them in the UK. FYI have actually been to London and met Greeks over there, the vast majority being Kyproi and mad Greeks. I assume you've been living in the UK for, well, I guess a few months and in a cave or barn, because in 2004 they went crazy celebrating with the Greek flag:

Mr Ed, by reading your clumsy posts I come to the conclusion that you may be this Omonia fan:

Are you? Because I always thought you were a talking horse...

...which at least would explain why you're posts are so stupid!

From a communication I had last year with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Cyprus, they told me should be around 550'000

They used to say that the UK had 250 000 Cypriots. They doubled in one generation, wow!

Getting them all back could be funny, especially if they bring their cultural biases with them. Can see the UK returnees being called Poms by the Ozzie repatriates, and both of them having a go at the US and Canada lot. These divisions being more important to them than the GC TC stuff. There is also a small but active Cypriot community in Paris, they could bring some culture and style back with them.

I would love all Cypriots repatriate from Australia back to Cyprus.

As far as Australia is concerned, it would be ridding itself of a lot of trash. They really are a special breed. They have nothing to contribute or offer.

Of course there are many who are quite good and they can stay.

I also reckon that the RoC should close down the Cyprus High Commission to Australia because they are an embarrassment and an insult to our intelligence. Doesn't the RoC need an Embassy in North Korea or something? Send them there! :lol:
