A general malaise is prevailing over Cyprus

"Our tourist industry has become tacky and is in a state of decay, mirroring a general malaise, a loss of love and respect for our island, few voicing a pride in being Cypriot any more", complains Hermes Solomon. "Bravo I say to our Ministry of Finance as we, along with Malta, have met Brussels' criteria for entering the euro next January. And what will it mean other than an increase of between 5 and 15 % in our cost of living as was encountered by all member states on conversion? Never mind what our government tells us about price controls, they can't even control traffic. ... By meeting those criteria, our government has criminally neglected our infrastructure, industry, tourism and the creation of real jobs."
