We need to erase the Turkish language from Cyprus - like the EU has done. :)

Bravo Lordo. Very well said. Some people have no shame. This coming from a very well educated highly intelligent lady is very worrying and disappointing.

I love the delightfully archaic phrasing for 'not transferable' on the train ticket:

'ahara nakli caiz değil'!

"Cyprus History"

Turkish was a very recent import to Cyprus - imported by the British to help split the island.

This Turkish was a language invented in Turkey by Ataturk at a time (1920s) when Turkey had ZERO hold on Cyprus. The British brought Turkey into Cyprus' affairs in the 1950s and instilled this opportunistic language for political gain. Such imperialist tricks must be exposed and shunned now.

As I said - it is NO LONGER a recognized language of the Republic of Cyprus - by deed of the EU!

What EU deed?

Never heard of such a thing and further to this, we don't care about the EU anyway.

The EU is about to be hit with a Tsunami. Cameron is about to open the floodgates. What a leventi!
