Interesting article in today's Daily Telegraph. TRNC government take note?

Hector,



Nice article.



It is very unpleasant to be living here through this time. We went through something similar during the late eighties and there was a sense of sacrifice for the public good at the time. Now that we see the bankers who were largely responsible for our predicament still awarding themselves pay rises, patriotic duty may not be enough this time.



By the way the Irish Government has just annouced ti is giving Greece 250m. We probably borrowed this from the Germans earlier.

It was reported, in local TRNC newspapers, that Turkey will cut public sector workers' salaries, but to date nothing seems to have materialised.



Doubtless, the recipients concerned will be delighted - even to the likely extent of offering even 'more jobs for the relatives'!

Anyone that applied for a passport in order to get to Cheltenham was fast tracked through last week!

Re Msg 5



Cheltenham is Ireland's way of supplementing the British economy. We give all our money to your Bookies!



Issuing emergency passports for Cheltenham is essential. There would be riots on the streets!



Seriously there were some nasty scenes at the Dublin Passport Office last week. All sorted now though.

PS It is still cheaper to be Irish than to be a Brit (for passports that is).
