Orange-Peel in the Spring of Love

Alan, Ray

New Republic;6/20/55, Vol. 132 Issue 25, p8
The article focuses on issues related to Cyprus. A major weakness of the Cypriot case lies in the fact that the islanders are so tactlessly thriving under British rule. Many Cypriots admit that, materially they are, undoubtedly better off under unrepresentative British rule than they would be if they elected deputies to the Athens parliament. Businessmen declare frankly that inflation and a slump in trade would probably follow union with Greece. Left-wing trade-unionists predict that the Athenian authorities would fling them into jail, yet both clamor for liberation from the British yoke.
