Cyprus Life – in pictures vs Fylde Coast Musings

Our new life in Cyprus began in early March 2004. Originally from a small mill town in Heywood, Lancashire (United Kingdom) we moved overseas spending a glorious 12 years in Limassol. Feel free to read my posts and view my many #photosofCyprus. However in 2016 we had to return permanently to UK due to family ill health. We're now living on the Fylde coast where the river Wyre meets the Irish sea in the north west of England. More places for us to discover as this part of the UK is not so familiar to us either.

Letters on Cyprus

Christofias – an act of treason?

Leave a comment


I came across this letter today to the editor of the Cyprus Mail. It was not so much the letter that got my attention but the comment that was posted in response to it.

“I READ in your newspaper all the accusations and denials over the Mari explosion disaster. It seems that this president will not accept that it occurred due to his promises made to Syria and Iran that he would protect their munitions at all costs and nobody would be allowed near them to inspect the hazards.

I also read that the president is immune from prosecution except for a few reasons, one being an ‘Act of Treason’.

Might I remind your readers that Guy Fawkes was hanged in the UK for threatening to blow up the Houses of Parliament (with the subsequent potential loss of life) for being a traitor. Can you please explain why, when an explosion actually occurred, and 13 precious lives really were lost due to this individual’s political stance, the president is not being prosecuted for treason?”

I'm "Shell" or Michele - formerly a UK Expat living in Cyprus since March 2004. Sadly, we had to return to UK in April 2016 due to family illness. We now live "over Wyre" where the "River meets the Sea" at Knott End on Sea, Fylde coast, Lancashire.
