“We see it as the delirium of a deputy. We don't take it seriously. We hold talks concerning visas with the EU Commission. We cannot sacrifice these talks due to the efforts of a deputy to attract attention. If we had said ‘yes' to such ungrounded demands, we would have put the action plan into action. But we did not care about this and requested the preparation of an action plan that includes our sensitivities, and we are after our request.” Bagis Said.

This is the message,

"we think you must be confused. You cant be serious. We are hosting talks concerning giving us a key to your house through the town council so we can come and go as we please. We are not going to sacrifice these talks because an employee is an attention seeker. If we agree to your unfounded demands, we would have implemented the Ankara protocol in full and complied with the Copenhagen criteria. We do not care about this, we want you to prepare a plan that takes into account how sensitive we are. This is what we are after." Bagis said.

Sure, the Greek Cypriots are to blame that Turkey's EU accession process is in complete deadlock............ :roll:

of course we are going to have eu principles. you will have it in the south and we will have it in the north. i dont understand what you are complaining about honestly.


...as Constituencies effecting the changes, and where as Individuals we choose as Citizens, through a Federal Government to accept them.

... must be in original, sealed bottle so people know they are buying the right stuff... been instances when cheap stuff is being passed off as decent oil.

Can't they tell the difference by taste alone?

...oils are blended to taste, it's the acidity that counts.

It sounds like another useless law. So from now on each table gets a new bottle of olive oil. What happens to the unused?

It will come in those small packs similar to those used elsewhere for Ketchups and mayonnaise in eg MaxDonald's.

If small plastic bottles (e.g. 10ml or so) are provided, it shouldn't be a problem. :wink:

Since Cypriot and Greek olive oils are superior, it's only right to protect them from those cheap Italian/Spanish imports - or heaven forbid, other places of suspect-origin.

Greek olives are not the best! There are better!

But I don't mind Kalamata Olives at all.
