Thank you for bringing it up.
I will use it as often as possible if I have your permission.


Absolutely. No matter what the insignificant british brigade says in this forum - here is the reality:



No amount of sock puppetry can change reality. :wink:

The Greek national anthem is totally irrelevant to Cyprus today.

Viva the Republic of Cyprus!

These are sentiments I agree with. however be careful with comments like that or some one like Joe might accuse you of being me, or vice versa.

Wasn't that written by a Greek? The same Greek who said that the "occupation of Cyprus is a wound of Hellenism"? If Cypriots want a national anthem written by one of the most famous and profound Greeks of recent times then who am I to complain?

Just a silly classical tune that nobody took seriously.
