If the British claim these areas are 'Sovereign' territory then the refugees are their responsibility and are in effect in the UK.

If, as some spokesman said when asked whether they were a UK responsibility "That is not our understanding" then the British should move out of the bases and return the land to the owners. Then the Cypriots can deal with the problem ..... but in that case it will be at least 20 years before any decision will be made. A lot of little brown envelopes will have to change hands before any action is even started.

Simple .... you can't have your cake and eat it! :roll:

"return the land to the owners"?
The owners are the UK, this land was never part of RoC.


Like everything else on the whole of Cyprus the owners are the native Cypriot people. Everything else (SBAs, RoC etc) are just temporary political constructions.

By the same token, you can see why the north should be returned fully to the owners, the RoC, as this land was never the 'trnc'.

...in any case, the migrants/refugees, economic or otherwise, are not treated well in these camps, it seems,
