Not that I speak it myself but Turkish is an official language of the Republic of Cyprus, defined in it's constitution, Article 3 Section 1.


Who gives a F, just because we were force to accept this Anglo BS constitution you use it whenever it suits you. When it doesn't suit, you ignore it at will.

Turkish is a devil language, period.

You say who gives a fuck about the constitution and then accuse me of using it when it suits and ignoring it when it does not ? Is that not exactly what you yourself have just done ?

I do understand your anger B25 and where it comes from but what hope is there for the future when all we have is anger ?

Improving the Constitution that we were forced to accept in order to obtain some semi-freedom is all about identifying the points that can remain unchanged but removing the unworkable, undemocratic obstacles. Or is everything black and white to you?

Otherwise, the people would have definitely approved the Agreements in the atmosphere that prevailed in 1959.

I don't know where you got that "voice of authority" quote from. Wasn't it you who earlier lambasted someone with this:

hypocrite wrote:I think it is very bad form to copy and paste some else's work without a citation / link to the original author / article.


Anyway, having the Constitution forced upon us is exactly what happened as even your *source* claims we weren't asked for approval. The rest is speculation from your ..... unknown .... source!

I fully agree with this statement. Times change and constitutions should be adjusted accordingly, and this is even more true for a crappy constitution that was imposed on Cyprus to serve the interests of everybody else except those of the majority of Cypriots. Even the apartheid and slavery were legal and constitutional once. That said, removing Turkish from being an official language is not a progressive change since this is something which is beneficial to a large number of citizens without harming anybody else. Personally, for a properly united Cyprus, I would support adding English as an official language also, and having that being the main language of the government and the parliament. At the same time, the remnant of British Colonialism, aka SBAs, should come to an end.

I guess Ancient Greek is a devil language too since just like Turkish they both use Attica syntax:
e.g. Τα παιδια παζει-->the children IS playing.
