What groups and green horses are you talking about you fucking idiot?

A shitty little country like Greece of 4 million in 1820 (let alone the 500 of 1000BC) half of which were Ottoman turncoats, now has “groups” of dialects???

Ma sovaromilas re vlaka? :lol:

Start using your fucking heads re gamoto…

But you're deluded to think we have much in common with Greece because Greeks are a people who have very little in common with anyone. They are off the charts and just simply not on this planet. You just need to look at their mentality to understand that they are a people who will not conform to anything and they will burn their own country. Recent events in the last 5 years prove this.

Cypriots are a different people. Far more sensible! Cyprus, among other EU countries is recovering while Greece will probably ask for another tranche of bailouts within the next year or 2.

If you think we have anything in common, then you're deluded.

If we have their genes (and we don't) then Cyprus is literally fucked!

The only solution then is to start bonking Germans and Brits to dilute the so called "Greek" genes!


These are overgeneralized impressions of someone who just visited Greece. I disagree with most of what you said, especially with the fact that we in Cyprus are more sensible. What we are actually, is more of a lambs.
I can recognize a "Greek or Cypriot including Tcs" from miles when i see one out of Cyprus or Greece. We do have many things in common...
Same happens when I see someone from Limassol. Although it's still my belief those from Limassol are from another planet :wink:

Ancient Cyprus is the Alpha and the Omega of European civilization… everything else is bullshit!


I don't know which is funnier ... your illusions of grandeur or that you use the Greek letters Alpha and Omega to describe it :lol:

Who says they’re Greek letters? Do you want me to go over everything again?

The results speak for themselves.

Greece was strung up and they were responsible for this 100% In contrast, the boring Cypriot Finance Minister (I am no fan of him) has delivered some good results and Cyprus is on the correct trajectory.

No one has the Greek Mentality, not even the Turks.

Sorry but it is time this bubble burst. Greeks don't conform. Italy, Spain, Ireland and Cyprus can't all be wrong and then in give kudos to Greece for not be a "lamb". The entire Greek System or way of thinking is very flawed and we do not share it in Cyprus. It's broken well and truly.

It's not as funny as your illusion of "Greek" grandeur!

At least he is a Cypriot and believes in his own grandeur rather than prostate himself to a foreign country. Do you see this occur in other countries? Not in a million years mate!

Which results??
The public finances were not a major issue in Cyprus. Our problem was and still is the Banks.
They only needed some economizing plus this new tax on everyone's properties to recover. As simple as that.

In Greece the Banks were OK, whereas the problem were the public finances. Their problem was and still is the same.

They have a reason for not conforming. It's impossible... They need a debt write-off and they are sure they will get it.
Whereas we in Cyprus just accepted to commit suicide.

I think we can all agree that it's just stupid to compare a country of 11 million with a country of less than 1 million.

Also, I didn't know NATO fanboys could also maintain nazi ideology at the same time.

All economic indicators are showing accelerated growth.

No one said that the public finances would be solved overnight. This is impossible as it will take time. However, if the RoC economy is growing, then Government income increases and the burden on Public Finances become less and less. On top of that, unemployment will decline provided the economy keeps growing, increasing tax revenues further and reducing any burden on the state.

Cyprus has returned back to International Markets and the Credit Rating Agencies have revised their outlook to POSITIVE!

The Banks have restructured themselves. And tax is a necessary thing for the State to function. The EU used this crisis as an opportunity to steer Cyprus into the right direction and introduce property land taxes which are standard in most EU countries. They have expanded the RoC's revenue base as anyone who owns land is unable to avoid this tax.

And sorry but you have nothing to complain about. I too pay IPT and in Cyprus it is dirt cheap compared to anywhere else. Paying a couple of hundred Euro each year is just peanuts!
