Whatever gave you that idea? Foolish Cypriot companies that invested in Greece will go down and later new ones will surface free from anything Greek if the lesson was learnt!

If this is what it takes to disassociate Cyprus from Greece then so be it... whatever works.


This is a very narrow minded approach. They assume that Cyprus must be attached permanently to Greece.

Is the US powerful because of the UK and Ireland. Are Canada and Australia powerful because of the UK and France? I think not. :roll:

Sometimes you need to cut a problem from the ROOT, like Cancer that needs to be scraped clear with a scalpel!

Sure, you may cut a neuron nerve or two in the process but the end result will be complete removal of the desease.


So a Cypriot lobotomy is an acceptable price to pay for the removal of the Greek 'cancer'? :shock:

What lobotomy? If the Cypriot public has to pay say an extra 5-10% on their mortgages to cover a debt then so be it! It’s a bloody bargain if it means the severing of financial ties with Greece, and the dawn of a new era where Greek influences and interferences on Cyprus are diminished.

For Cyprus, the Greek financial debacle is a political blessing in disguise at a small price…

Sorry, I'd expect you to see the bigger picture. Yes, Greece let Cyprus down in 1974 (against a background of military dictatorship) which contributed to the current illegal Turkish occupation, but Cyprus would do well to support Greece now in its current difficult position. One thousand years ago (and much more) Cyprus and Greece were culturally indistinguishable. One thousand years ahead? Which nation will be Cyprus' greatest ally? I'd bet on Greece.

I think you are wrong.

Look further east and you will find our most critical ally.

If we are doomed with greece as our main ally, then we might as well pack it all in now.

And Greece has everyone's support, including Cypriots. But we as a nation don't need to sell ourselves short.

It appears that we disagree on what’s best for Cyprus! :)

Ah well… it was a good lunch! :wink:

So who will be Cyprus' greatest ally in 100 years time, 200, 500, 1000? Israel? :lol:

Yup, good lunch, shame I had to eat for two!

Impossible to tell... too many variables involved but we can call it “j” if it aids our calculations! :lol:
