They are not fair weather friends - they have been here 15 years!

They own two properties, two cars, substantial deposits in the banks and work in a Cypriot owned business...

They have invested a HUGE amount in Cyprus for the good of Cyprus.

And they are not alone sadly...

I remember how certain members on here said we didn't need Brits to move here or come on holiday as we were a 'financial services hub'...

Well, now we have no British holidaymakers and no financial services either - what have we got?

But is this hard a** stance by the filthy Krauts necessary?
make an example of Cyprus, they're small. Drive the knife in as far as it will go.

Cyprus out.
But Gawd help you motherfu**ers when there's any turbulence in the future.
The Italians and Spanish will rip your ever loving Protestant child molesting hearts out to leave the currency, because they know it can be done!


I just like to point out that child molestation is not all that unknown in the Church of Rome....

There are plenty of threads about the "so-called-concern" over Cyprus and this one has run its course, especially since there was zero evidence he actually threatened to resign.

It's a natural progression to move on to how the UK will suffer as fall-out from Cyprus, but of course, it's very British to defiantly hush-up any possible bad news for the UK in the worry over "self-fulfilling prophecies".

BTW your Daily Mail article is complete nonsense since EU students only qualify for help with Tuition fees and they were only introduced last year - so how many people have graduated from a typical 3 year university course in one year?


Tuition fees have been in place for at least five years (albeit at a low level) , and loans have been available to EU national students for that long. I know that for a fact as my son has a loan, which could only get on the basis of being an EU resident student, never having lived in the UK.

I know that stud - but people only really needed help with tuition fees since the recent hike. I actually don't know of ANY Cypriot students who have gone for these loans. Most use the bank of mum-and-dad. Their take-up was minimal till now probably. But still, they are not due to be paid back till salaries kick over £21,000 or so.

People really underestimate how even a 1% student drop affects these institutions and I really feel for them.

So what would be the impact if your fair weather ex-pats went back to the UK .....on your theory ....?????
