So on what basis do you distinguish between who gets to have jobs here and who doesn't? If it is not "race", then what is the criterion? You have already ruled out Cypriotness by explicitly stating that Turkish Cypriots are excluded.

I am not posting BS, mate, you are, because you are showing that you don't even understand your own ideology. If it is not based on race, what is it based on? That is not BS. That is a simple question.

Just to be absolutely certain, if you don't mind.

On this glorious future day, on which you will also no doubt declare union with the motherland, is there room for somebody like me, who I am afraid to say does not have a single Greek gene in his DNA, within this new motherland? It might be worth knowing so I can make advance preparations.

:lol: All wrong mate. Greeks don't have a motherland. :x Your question has been answered in my previous posts. :roll:

Some facts:
When I moved to Cyprus, I brought the cash with me to buy my flat and, when the deal went through, I duly paid the full amount as per the contract to the developer. Later, when the title deeds came through, I immediately paid the full amount of the transfer fees. Every year, I have promptly paid my tax to the municipality as soon as the letter comes, without waiting for the due date. I will do the same when the letter asking for the new property tax comes.
I am self-employed in Cyprus. For the several years 100% of my work has been for clients abroad - all of my work results in invisible imports for Cyprus. At most 1-2% of my work has ever been local in any year. I am registered for income tax and VAT in Cyprus. I work strictly on an above-board basis and issue a VAT invoice for absolutely every job I do. I declare the full amount of my income for tax purposes - unlike many ethnically pure-bred members of the Greek master race who, despite earning lots of money as doctors, dentists and accountants and drive fancy cars, declare sub-subsistence levels of income on their tax returns. 2011 and 2012 were bad years for me and I paid little income tax genuinely because my income was low, but this year so far I have been working flat our and will be paying several thousand euro in temporary income tax in July, and it is my intention to pay everything in a single instalment just to help out my adopted country in these hard times. I have not left Cyprus since 2005, so every penny I have spent since then has been in Cyprus and I make a conscious effort to buy local products if they are available. In the past few weeks I transferred several thousand pounds from the UK to my account with the Bank of Cyprus, partly to demonstrate my solidarity. Only recently, I paid 580 euro into the social insurance fund, which is mandatory for all self-employed people here, even though I will never get anything back out of it.

So I just wondered, in the light of the above, on the day when the streets resound to the sound of jackboots and stirring marching music, will a group of your friends come and take me off to the concentration camp, or this room for the odd hard-working, law-abiding, tax-paying person who, sadly has no master race genes in his DNA, to continue to live in your hallowed motherland?


Wrong again. It's not about you. It's about a country that must take care of its people first. Forget about adopted countries and other nonsense you have been brainwashed to believe and accept. You are what you are: British.

What light? You live in the darkness of multiculturalism! :lol:

I didn't mention races and DNAs, so please stop posting BS. You can never beat Lordo in that field anyway. :mrgreen:


It is a very simple question, mate. Do I go to the gas chambers or not?


I will presume no answer to mean "yes".

Tim, pay no attention to this idiot!

Cyprus needs people like you to invest and live their lives as productive individuals. That is the only way Cyprus can recover from where it is now!

In fact we need more foreigners! Foreigners with certain skills that can benefit our economy.

However, cheap labour sources from Eastern countries like Bulgaria and Romania is something the Cypriot Unions and the RoC Government will need to address because it is true that some businesses are manipulating the system and recruiting cheap labour somehow!

The answer was simple too, but you didn't understand it. :lol: :lol:

Turkish Cypriots have excluded themselves. Most of them are lazy bums anyway, and don't want to work, living on GCs's or Turkey's expense.

When the CY problem is solved, they should be allowed equal status as GCs. Never before, because they will not have the motivation to accept a just solution.

If Turkey had been embargoed by the international community in 1974, the CY problem would be solved since 1975 (I reckon they would had lasted only a year or so). :wink:

Thanks for that. I have rubbed shoulders with Cypriots of all communities in my time here and have found virtually everybody to be warm, welcoming, tolerant and open minded. Then I come to this place. I really sometimes ask myself who the real Cypriots are.

Even so, given that I live here and ELAM may come to power, surely I am entitled to inquire as to what lies in store for me if they do?

What is the criterion (that is a Greek word, by the way, so you have no excuse for not understanding it: "from Latinized form of Greek kriterion "means for judging, standard," from krites "judge," from PIE root *krei- (see crisis). Used in English as a Greek word from 1610s") on the basis of which you will decide who is entitled to first preference when it comes to getting a job.. You still have nor answered that question.

Is it because you don't understand or you are incapable of answering?

ELAM will never come to power.

If they were not able to get more votes in the last election when Cyprus was in crisis and facing default, and a total banking collapse, then it will never take off.

Cypriots are not fanatical extremist right wingers by nature.
