UK, Greece and Turkey wanted to divide Cyprus way back, but guess what, looks like in time, the UK and Turkey will be divided instead. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Of interest here as that some think there are undertones that could impinge on the future of other states.

- So if you lived in Scotland, how would you vote?

YES to break away from the UK and freedom from English rule?

Or, NO as staying together is preferable?

Mention some reasons for your choice ....


Not voting or making known my opinion!

It is of much greater interest to the forum to know YOUR position and the opinions of your much better half and son, since they are Scottish. Surely, these opinions are far better informed and more valid than the opinions of any Cypriot on a Cypriot Forum regarding Scottish Independence.

...yes, and the joke is on us while they will take the next set of decades to Federalise, if you will, their respective Unitary States, Cyprus has remained divided because Modern thoughts such as this remain strictly denied. there is a difference between the words Individual, and Person, which are undeniable, like the words Freedom, and Liberty, or Nation, and State; Bicommunal (and/or Bizonal) in the Cypriot context, does not mean "Greek" vs. "Turk", and vice versa.

This is precisely what I imagined a xerogefalos would assume.

Like Spain, and its demands from the Catalonians, the RoC is a sovereign country and cannot be split or divided at the whim of some foreign invading community ...

“A Yes vote in Scotland won’t change anything here,” agrees Àlex Sancliment, of the Catalans for Yes campaign. “The Spanish Government will continue saying the Constitution prohibits any consultation or referendum in an autonomous community.”
Guardian

BTW and furthermore, the Catalonians are an indigenous community in Spain whereas the TCs are not indigenous to Cyprus, so the Catalonians would have even more rights to demand a referendum - but they cannot even then!

The TCs are going nowhere with our stolen country - except repatriation back to Turkey (which even the British suggested they should do at least twice)!

No matter what happens, Scotland and the remaining UK will always be very close.

if anything, they will increase their influence in Europe, at the UN and so forth. So they will be stronger.

There is a very big misconception that this will weaken the UK. Is NZ just an Australian satellite? The Kiwis will never accept it, but the fact is, they are! :D
