I was horrified to read a recent newspaper report that said a solution ‘would cost €33 billion: not because of the topic, but because it was clearly untrue.
It is yet another attempt by parties who are against a solution to scare the public with visions of impending economic destruction if we reunify the island.
The article appeared in Simerini newspaper and had manipulated sources to confuse several issues: in another article in the same paper, it suggests instead that the “cost” of a solution would be $25bn. The second article distorts joint work undertaken by myself, Fiona Mullen and Mustafa Besim on the peace dividend of a Cyprus solution to show that the “cost” of a solution would be far higher than our calculated benefit of peace………….
