Will Lordo’s kebabs be able to reach Kurupet at the Golden Dawn offices without the risk of food poisoning? :?

So many questions… but no answers. :lol:

boses fores gavole na su dabo

no kebabs. cafe in shirley. plenty charlui specialty egg bubble squeek with extra lemon.

avgolemono bubble and squeek. simples gavole. but as kuru is partial to a bit arse i shall add a tiny bit of arsenic to it for better taste. it takes away he taste from his tongue from all that arse licking he is forced to do by his elam leader extraordinaire.

Simple, everyday things. Will I be able to drive and visit any part of Cyprus without having to register and insure my car twice and without having to queue up at checkpoints ? Can I today ? Will I get paid in and use the same currency where ever I am in Cyprus ? Is that true today ? Will I be able to get furniture I buy at Ikea delivered direct to my home ? Will my mobile phone work at the same cost throughout Cyprus ? Simple things but ones that would make a significant material difference to living in Cyprus for me.


As for the title and insurance..yes it will have to payed and registered in the state you live..the other things you mentioned it depends, the state will have to decide..in my opinion the Tc state would keep these restrictions because they kept the right to do so in the Annan plan....even koLordos kolo would be registered

Even here in the USA certain states restrict certain commerce in their state from other states...California and Florida come to mind..so yes IKEA could be restricted...

Today I can take my earned TL and change them into euros, queue up at a crossing point, and provided I have registration and insurance for my car separately and in both parts, drive to Ikea, buy a cupboard, put it in my car and drive back home. In fact I have done so on several occasions. What I can not do is get Ikea to deliver that cupboard to me here in the north. Are you really saying that in your view under a BBF the TC federal state would have both the right and the desire to ensure that it is still the case that I can not have my cupboard delivered to me ? Are you insane ?

it may be Ikeas choice not to deliver for whatever reason...but like I said before California and Florida have the right to restrict entry into their state of some agricultural products and some other restrictions. Some states also give themselves the right to stop an interstate commercial vehicle and see charge them a tax for not fueling in their state, like Arkansas in the USA....which is a federation...

Care to explain? :mrgreen:


I actually do want a unitary Cypriot state. I just understand and respect that the only way to get there is for TC and GC to choose to place being 'Cypriot' and united as such despite our other differences, ahead of and above choosing to be 'Greek' or Turkish'. I understand the reality that given our abject failures in the past to do this and what that has resulted in, that there is no way to go from where we are today directly to the ideal of a unitary Cypriot state where it truly does not manner if you are a GC or TC. That we can only get there via an intermediary stage of 'federation' and that it may take generations from there to reach the ultimate end goal.

Do you choose to place being Cypriot ahead of being Greek Kurupetos ? Would you today defend me as a Cypriot against Greeks who may wish to harm me, given your communities failure to do so in the past ?


...well said erolz.

At least people should know what they are getting themselves into, RW.

It's hopeful you want a unitary state. :) I doubt there are any Greeks who wish to harm you. :roll:

After all the year is 2015 and Cyprus has been an EU member since 2004. Being a Greek or Turk of Cyprus is irrelevant of being a Cypriot citizen. Ethnicity and citizenship are two different things. For example, Armenian Cypriots are a tiny minority, but nobody ever harmed them. :wink:

As a Cypriot citizen you will have to pay taxes and respect the law.

IMO, that will be the biggest problem for TCs if we have a solution. :mrgreen:
