For many small businesses in Cyprus, particularly the bakers, they and their families will never forgive the EU for driving them out of business or reducing their income. But what the heck its the survival of the Euro that's more important to the unelected Commissioners. The Eurozone people's common sense will however prevail in the future.

It beggars belief how an idiot like this can be allowed to blame others' when he sat by doing nothing. If you've the time, read Yiannis Varoufakis' 'Adults in the Room' - I know how little the European Council (as opposed to the union with elected members) cares for anybody other than their own reputations.

There WAS an alternative which would have restored economic balance in Greece, however, Tsipras bottled it.

Thanks for sharing your ignorance of the EU with us yet again.

The European Central Bank (one-third of the troika that oversaw the Greek & Cypriot crises) is separate to the EU Commission.

The board of the ECB is made up by representatives with a banking history from the 19 eurozone countries. For a member to become president they need to be proposed by the Economic and Financial Affairs Council and accepted by a simple majority amongst the Finance Ministers of the 19 member states and the EU Parliament.

The other two bodies in the troika were the IMF & World Bank, both of those bodies have a history of bailing out countries and enforcing policies that bleed those countries dry.

As I see it Clive made one mistake, he blames the EU for Cyprus's financial woes whereas it has been clearly stated that Anastasiades took the decision regarding the haircut and lied to the Country and the House of Representatives to get what he wanted done. Yes the EU was at fault in allowing him to take these actionsmin prson to blame is Anastasiades, something I have been saying foralmost 5 years now.

However Kwacka it is you that is ignorant if you believe the ECB does anything for the public. Everything they do is for the megarich and to line their own pockets. They are not elected by the public they are nothing but a quango of their own sort.

When are you going to wake up and accept that the EU leaders are nothing but self serving leeches who should not be supported by the likes of you or the remoaners the majority of who know nothing about what they are getting up to.

Actually Chris again you seem to misread something that has not been said.

Kwacka did not say the ECB did anything for the Public, he was correcting clive. But if you read on he also states that the IMF and World Bank bleed Countries dry.

Many GC's voters in the forthcoming election know full well that the President of Cyprus had little or no say in the matter of the Haircut. Cyprus could have asked the UK, as a fellow Commonwealth country, for a simple debt relief programme with no political strings attached. But that wouldn't have gone down well with the unelected Commission; financial and political control of EU countries is their method, ask the Greeks, Irish and the Italians.

One suspects that to avoid problems locally, many GC's will abstain from voting possibly leading to get another EU country failing or struggling to gain a ruling majorit yas in, Holland, Germany, Spain etc.

You obviously don't understand the electoral system here either!

The imminent election is for President, nothing to do with the House of Representatives, so whichever of the candidates receives 50% +1 of the valid votes cast (probably in the second run-off round) will form the Government.
