But that is only because Poland does not yet meet the Citeria for Euro Entry just yet, but might in 2015.

Kuru is correct. All new EU entrants must adopt if they meet the economic criteria. Cyprus met the criteria so had to join.

All new members are obliged to adopt the euro.
All Member States of the European Union, except Denmark and the United Kingdom, are required to adopt the euro and join the euro area.

Those of you who thrive on Google searches can see that in all countries where the euro has been adopted, the far right is calling for an exit from the euro zone. The same goes for the far left. In fact, these people are against globalisation because they see it as a threat to the national purity on one hand and an imperialist ploy on the other.

I will return them, if I find them. That's a promise. :wink:

why the b$#tching about Greece,Spains economy is practically at the point Greece is at and Italy is not far behind

http://articles.philly.com/2012-05-31/b ... g-problems



The narrow minded Germans are too blame for the continuation of this mess, 4 years of reforms in the Eurozone, but there is nothing to stimulate a depressed economy, why? Because the Germans refuse to devalue the euro and ease up on monetary policy....

OMG, this is what it's all about with your dogmatic denial of the Cypriot ethnicity. You're hoping they redefine themselves from an Hellenic people to becoming British, on par with with the mongrels of Gibralter and the inbred weirdos of the Falklands. LOL! What bloody era are you posting from? Victorian or Edwardian? You can't accept the British Empire no longer exists. What a loser, lol.

Mr Ed, Boom-Boom, Mr Limey applauds you for your Britishness. That deserves a jolly good.

Levity aside, I have always been sceptical about the Euro, and indeed the whole thrust of EU devlopment into a new superstate, which I have suspected is a plan to do by stealth what Naploeon Bonepart and Adolf Hitler failed to do by war.

Wow, you're pretty switched on. Yep, what the Jerries and Frogs couldn't achieve with war they are doing with the EU. And it's actually working (well with regarding the Germans as long as them pesky Greeks do as they're told). Europe now looks to Paris and Berlin for leadership. London is a tourist destination or a destinaton for East Europeans to go and find work. Even your "special friendship" (in reality your lapdog status) with the US has run its course. Welcome to reality. The UK is no longer important.

Maybe if you want to convert the Cypriots, you should them if they declare themsleves British then they too can smile like this:

...exactly why i stress that it is important to define Bicommunal: as Persons, as Individuals, and not as "Greek" and "Turk". If it is based on Universal Principals, it serves Mankind and not just Cypriots. Similarly the Euro is an opporthunity to have a higher governance, that there is an equality amongst all People, where Citizens may feel that in their own Societies they share a Union with others where there is Goodfaith and Goodwill.

...so far this has not been the case because many unknowns exist, and at its advent many issues have been revealed. easy to withdraw because at this moment things are tough, but in the long run the reasons for a Euro are sound, certainly it will be harder to get back in, and getting out (at this time) is no good reflection on Cyprus' credibility with her major trading partners.
