Haha Ozz, nice try. But I don't see much difference between trying to please 70 million people and 70.3 million people. Doesn't change the calculations so much.<quoted text>
You really think so?
Who do you think the Turkish governemnt will try and please? The 75 million Turks or the 300,000 Tcs?
Unfortunately when things get tough, government tend to set priorities to satisfy the majority. The Tcs are definitely not on the top of the list.
The wallet is getting very thin at the moment...
And Turks are quite different than Greeks. If you say in Turkey, for TRNC to survive, you need to donate 1/5th of your income this year to TRNC, at least half of the people would not even hesitate doing so. For most Turks, national interests are much more ahead of individual interests.
