Cyprus Problem - Out of The Frying Pan and Into The Fire

Cyprus Problem - Out of The Frying Pan and Into The FireA demonstration in London demanded that Turkish troops leave Cyprus and allow Cyprus to be one again. The idea was that with a new Tory leader the solution of the Cyprus Problem would take a different turn under her leadership.

Tory MP Theresa Villiers said:

“I have been campaigning for the freedom of Cyprus for 17 years. It is a great tragedy that Cyprus remains divided and I believe that it is crucial to keep on working hard for a negotiated settlement. We have a new Prime Minister in Britain, a whole new Government and a new Foreign Secretary and I will do whatever I can to make sure that Cyprus is high on their agenda. It is important to support the Cypriots to reach a lasting, balanced and just settlement to reunify the island and bring all of its people together once again.”

So, what would this mean for Turkish Cypriots? Obvious isn’t it? In a United Cyprus they would become part of the democratic process. One person, one vote. Yes, that’s right, they would yet again become a minority subject to the whims of Greek Cypriot voters. That’s democracy folks! That’s why I say that a United Cyprus will be a case of ‘Out of The Frying Pan and Into The Fire’.

    So there is someone else who hasn’t the faintest idea.

    You are, of course, correct Dom in what you say.

    ” One person, one vote. Yes, that’s right, they would yet again become a minority ”

    Isn’t what democracy demands? One person one vote, or does this fundamental principle applies to the selected few!!

    Every nation on earth has minorities amongst its citizens. Minority definition is:
    less than half
    the few
    the outnumbered
    the outvoted

    Are you perhaps suggesting that in the UK the party with the fewer seats won in an election should be given …extra seats and the right to block any decision taken by the majority. There is only one definition of a minority.
    Numerically inferior.

    What I am suggesting is a bit like Scotland, which hates the fact that they would never have enough MPs to stop the English MPs forcing something on Scotland that the majority of Scots do not want. Sound familiar? Yes, I suggesting a separate country for North Cyprus!

    Were we all together before 1974?

    Weren’t we forced to live in enclaves?
