Prescient Benedict


A Cypriot friend of mine says that there's no money in the ATM machines in her town.

Good that you have drawn attention to this matter. As you say, the state is a great band of robbers. Where is Robin Hood when you need him?!

The new austerity measures still have to be passed by the Cyprus Senate. Cyprus has an unusual constitution in that it has a president as a republic, but the president's decisions must be approved by the House of Representatives (Senate) so the opposing parties could outvote him. They are meeting in half an hour.

By the way, your friend is not a Cypriot, but a Scottish-English-Italian-Cypriot, with allegiance to the British Crown and ultimately to Rome. Viva el Papa!
Good that you have highlighted this matter.
