Richard Chamberlain has written to us in response to the news of representatives from the UK All Party Parliamentary Group visiting Northern Cyprus and expressed his views as under:
“With the greatest respect for the Lords and Ladies of the UK All Party Parliamentary Group visiting Northern Cyprus, what difference will they make?
They have got no powers to change the thinking of the Government or to change the British High Commissioner to Cyprus, Matthew Kidd’s one sided biased views. The Greek Cypriots hold all the cards in their hands through wrongly being allowed into the European Union. The EU say to the Greek Cypriots “Yes Sir, No Sir” every time they want something.
Look at the Ercan airport situation. Travellers have flown for years via Pegasus Airlines to Istanbul and then to Stansted, London without disembarking, and because the Greek Cypriots have seen that Ercan is getting more passengers and more popular than Larnaca, they have told the EU and Britain to not “RECOGNISE” Ercan even though it has been recognised for years without any trouble.
This was proven in the letter I sent by email to the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office with documentary proof asking them to explain why the UK Border Agency were giving certificates of approval to Pegasus Airlines in 2011 at Ercan airport and further certificates were given to workers at Ercan airport by the UK Home Office in 2014.

All this nonsense about security is a smoke screen!”
