Your not going to drag me into a slanging match as you always appear to do on here, shame really as this is a good Forum spoiled only by a few, personal remarks are as about affective as a chocolate fireguard to me though so carry on, its just lost on many of us sad pathetic individuals
Whenever I post in future I expect you will be ready to pounce on my opinions, get a life man, as with your own, they are just that, opinions. But in my case educated ones
It might be better to actually live here to know what you are talking about
Btw you did,nt actually answer any of my response,s in my last 'informed' post, just on my conclusion, what does that show, you don,t maybe know the answers?
Problems in the north ARE much worse that the south. Perhaps you need re educating on the subject of Cyprus you know so little that is correct.
I woud,nt mind but even the UK want to get rid of the expensive and under used SBA,s as well.
Some facts for you;-
The British did nothing to stop the invasion nor did they help to move the Turkish troops out when the legitimate government was restored to power. The Royal Navy had an aircraft carrier on standby but they were called off, as the Americans were unwilling to support intervention and Britain could not/would not go it alone. Under the treaty of guarantee the British should have moved as soon as the first reports of the attrocities the Turks committed came in. The British troops that did put up resistance were actually fighting under the UN flag around Nicosia to defend the airport. For the rest the only British involvement was letting the refugees from Famagusta poor into the Dhekelia SBA looking for protection and for evacuating the Turkish Cypriots from Limassol to the northern part of the island.
The truth is that the British have played a very negative role in Cyprus between 1950 and 1974. First they tried to control the island through terror and martial law, and later through division. Subsequently they setup the treaties to make Cyprus independent under the guarantee of Turkey, Greece and themselves without asking one single Cypriot whether that is what they wanted, let alone as to how they wanted it (to this day there is still not a Cypriot signature under any of the treaties that established Cyprus as a state - they were simply not asked). Subsequently, the British government did not respect the Treaty of Guarantee, which the British government deviced.
Have a good life.....
