And Iceland is an EEA-member, so there's not a big difference I guess.

There's two kids from Iceland in my daughters class, coming here after their meltdown

The Euro belongs to Cyprus too.


Pawns are meant to be sacrificed to keep the game going.

I know that mate. I didn't claim otherwise; I was simply stating the Cypriot citizens' employment options. :wink:

We are all on the same boat (Eurozone), i.e., we are part of the system, either they like it or not. 8)

Economically, Cyprus is of no significance to the eurozone. It's the precedent that is the most dangerous. If Cyprus leaves the eurozone (or tax deposits) that creates a whole new ball game.

OK, but they are mostly theoretical. I often read about highly qualified Spanish engineers and so on, that aren't left a tiny chance in the job market here. Mostly a language issue, probably, but where should the Cypriots go? To Greece with its 20% unemployment? To UK?
