It, you're a star.

Good site. There is always a difficulty with any population when a currency is changed, just look at us in Britain in 1971 when we went decimal but now we have to accept total controll by the ECB. Giving over controll of anything is never easy but to hand over the economic future of your country to a faceless group of Euro Bankers and Eurocrats doesn't sit easy with me. Of course i can see the advantage of having money in my pocket that i can spend all over Europe but at what price (pardon the pun)?

I feel like Maria. Neither I am sure if the Euro is a good thing or not for Cyprus.

On the one side, if they would have Euro, I wouldn't have to think of changing my money now when I come for holiday. It is already some while ago that i was changing currencies. :)

But on the other side it might happen like in Germany or Austria for example, that the prices rapidly increase. Now we are living already 4 years with Euro and still we can feel the higher prices due to the change of currency.

VEX this is not true, because if britain joined the Europe then a part of these Euro Bankers would be English, so not only you have no danger but you could also bring forward your ideas and policies to the rest of the union.
