Sleep from That Side

One of TeePee's strongest arguments for not meeting with Talat is that such meetings could raise false expectations in the public's mind that something may be happening, when in atual fact nothing could be achieved from such a theoretical meeting. At face value this may even sound reasonable to the neutral observer.

In the past 2 months, however, we have been innundated with suggestions that Varosha will be given back so that the Turkish Cypriots can go ahead and start using Famagusta port legitimately. Ask people in Cyprus and they'll probably tell you that Varosha will be ours in time for Christmas. Now, this will most most likely (99.999%) not happen. The question is, which is a worse? TeePee having coffee with Talat every 3 months or the predicted outcome of Varosi's fate? And if it is the latter, what faith should a neutral observer have in TeePee - Da Man?

What faith should ANY observer have in TeePee - Da Man?

The way things are, even if something positive does happen, I will strongly believe it's an illusion and look for Coperfield.

TeePee - Da Man has effectively sucked any faith I might have had left in respect to the Cyprus problematic situation (externally AND internally).

Emm, give the people in Cyprus a bit more credit. We now that politicians are full of it. NOBODY expects Varosha to be "ours" in time for Christmas!!

This whole thing is a mess. We are negotiating something - recognition by a candidate state of the EU - that should not have anything to do with the "Cyprus Problem" and yet we have managed to dig ourselves in a hole again.

@m: You are right, they might think about it deep down but their brain tells them otherwise, they dont really expect anything.

It seems to me that people have gotten used to the status quo and Tee Pee seems to be the best guarantee that the status quo will continue. Therefore, he looks (and acts) like an Untouchable. Is this the reason he seems Untouchable?
