I know many Greek Cypriots, most are fairly pro-Brit. The odd one or two are illogically anti. Quite a few dream of getting their property in the north of the island back from the Turks. Chucking rocks at British service people is not the way forward.Well, if it hastens our departure from that lovely island, then I fear the Greeks will live long to regret it as the Turks move in big time, and they will.
And we thought we were in for a nice two year posting on the holiday island in 1974! The Turks thought differentlyFive hurt in Cyprus in protest over British ... JPost - Headlines
And I was hoping for a peaceful 3 month deployment
What have the brits done to Cyprus, apart from clean drinking water, sewerage systems, a good civil service, driving on the correct side of the road etc?
I like you, you can't spell Cypriots such is your anger, tell me, are you currently bleeding from your furry sleeping bag?
Do you not think that all the cash spent by thousands of Military Personnel and their families on the Island pays for the bases. How do you know that the Bases haven't been paid for, can you give your Governmental Source along with genuine proof that this hasn't happened or are you just spouting shite?it was also agreed £5 million a year for the bases, which a penny has never been paid. Most Cypriots remember the english soldiers sheilding the turks with their tanks and the english soldiers showing the turks in 1974 where to go.
Can I take this opportunity to say a big thank you to the Cypriot peasant farmer who's rather large and grand clock has graced my familys home ever since my father pinched it mid way through a firefight with those dastardly rogues who were shooting at him.
What? Who do you consider to be Cypriots? I am guessing that you do not include the Turks.
