and don''t forget that other significant group of ex-pats, the Russians, whose lose will surely be felt,,

As GiG essentially observes you only need have a loss at the margin to be devastated....

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 ....?????


I don't understand what you mean.

Are these ex-pats going back to study? :?

Unlike you, I don't believe there is or will be a mass exodus from Cyprus.

Some oligarch just came out and said the amount he is being taxed-levied-haircutted for in Cyprus is not even worth thinking about!

Sure a few Brits want to move back because sterling is performing so poorly their pensions are not as they were - but if they stopped to weigh up the extra costs of fuel, other UK-high taxes etc - they would soon stay PUT!

Immigration into the UK is severely lowered - with the loss of a lot of foreign students. Emigration from the UK is still rising.

You fail to understand why so many people came here and made Cyprus their home....

Much as you will hate me to say it, the primary reason was low taxes and low cost of living.

Of course, Cyprus itself, the weather and the people were a bonus, a deal clincher if you like...

But now all of those things have been lost...

Entry to the EU and then the €uro have increased the cost of living here greatly... VAT has gone from 10 to 19% in the short time I have been here, diesel from about €0.19 to €1.44, energy generally has become extremely expensive with Green taxes on top.

And now Defence tax on savings looks to increase to 30%.

And do you know what those people are thinking...? What they are saying about Cyprus now...?

They say, "you know, if I am going to pay all these increased taxes and increased energy costs and have my savings stolen I may as well live in a first world country where I can flush toilet paper and get an ambulance with a paramedic on board if I am ill"...

You need to realise that Cyprus is becoming much less attractive....

We can't do anything about it, and it's out of our control.

If they have to leave, then power to them and I personally wholeheartedly wish them the best. Personally, I think we should send some more Cypriots to the U.K to get some good jobs. At least they have a good level of English unlike the Spaniards.

cheers

You talk the biggest load of bollicks I have ever heard, you clearly overload on chocolate and cakes and the sugar rush addles your amoeba. Your avatar is of a beautiful woman, somehow I envisage you to be the complete opposite, you have serious psychological problems and are racist toward Brits. A thoroughly unpleasant person indeed.
