The reasons why we shouldnt stay in EU ?

Postby GAVCARoCOM » Tue Feb 27, 2007 6:23 am

My opinion,
GC s and TCs should never join the EU
CYPRUS was paradaise for long time and look whatsgoingon now.
I live in UK and joining EU destroyed the small busineses and enfilation is higher. Its hard for people now to find job or they have to work for less money. A lot of tax you have to pay . House prices get higher and higher everyday. For what is good EU. Nothing ,only small things which is easier travelling, bringing more lowclass tourists, and whatelse ? Nothing
For GC s maybe hope for their way solition . Thats all.
Cyprus dont need EU . Trust me. EU rippingof people.
As a Turkish Cypriot i beleive if they start direct flights we dont need EU or anything in life. Now its lke a paradise. Everything is cheap , very low tax and non stresfull life.Honestly its like a paradise not to be in EU.

you have a point there but what about : fuel emissions, recycling, environmental laws, civil wrights, safety laws......If you think that even the cypriot government could have done something about that without the pressure from the EU your very much mistaken. They are so corrupt that they would ( and they will) " develop AKAMAS.....So its not so bad

Gav, I agree, that EU is killing small businness and the people are not necessarily better off. You are right too that the RoC joint prematurely with the hope that there would be some resolution to the CP, instead I think they have been sold by EU, as far as direct flight there are some of us that hope you wont. But that is only my position and view on the whole thing.

the main problem i see with all the eu carry on is its letting people work in countrys that have fought long and hard for there children to grow up in safety and earn a good wage all the borders opening is going to cause choas over europe thousands from un developed countrys are and will flood britain and cyprus and many other developed countrys taking the employment so again the rich get richer (bosses) the poor get poorer

well that is the new world age my friend globalisation and capitalism. there is nothing wrong wth openning borders etc and allowing people to build better lives for themselves and their families, however what needs to be done is to also have tax benefits for people to enhance their lives and equal levels of pay, why should a sri lankan be paid less than a cypriot? wouldn't it be better for that sri lankan if they were paid the same amount therefore getting richer quicker and then returning to their home and be with their families?

The European Union will be judged by future Historians as the ultimate wonder of the world. The greatest Union of nations in the entire history. Europe went through two catastrophic wars during the last century. Just the prevention of such enormous catastrophes is enough to sustain the argument that the EU is the greatest act off all time.
Those who put forward the ridiculous assumption of sovereignty loss are on the whole narrow minded individuals who dont know their back from their front. What sovereignty loss,. The morning assembly at our schools , the denigration of our culture , the introduction of weird eating habits at our schools , our passport controls run by weird individuals , our airport security checks carried out by bad breath garlic eating non British people the demotion of our long established festivities ? What sovereinty , the bloody pound , a piece of paper ! Traffic warden mentality so widespread in the UK is spreading to Cyprus perhaps.

Gav I think that is innevitable, it has lots of land to accommodate for the over population of our earth, whilst I have a problem with Miltiades' language at times, I do think he has valid arguments especially about safeguarding against a war similar to 1940's. And there will not be sovereinty either I think there will be a europe without borders, that's why it makes the cyprus problem even more ludicrous. Because some cypriots are missing out for nothing and will probaly miss out for at least another ten years to reach the same end result one unified europe.

The only reason the GCs went into the EU was to bring about a new dynamic and force their demands on the TCs and Turkey with the "European Solution" and now that has not materialized they will pay EU price....
