The leader of CTP [Republican Turkish Party] took the floor yesterday in the Republic’s Assembly during a debate on the Presidency budget, giving, as always, a spectacular lesson…
Drawing attention to the fact that Ersin Tatar who holds the office of the President is constantly in the “field”, Erhürman reminded that the Üst’El [Translator’s note: meaning ‘senior hand’, a wordplay on the National Unity Party leader’s name Ünal Üstel] Government had referred to the local elections as a “referendum between those supporting a two-state solution and a federation.”
“We didn’t do this, and we explained everywhere we went that this was wrong. That is why you now need to come up here and explain; four of the six districts rejected your views,” Erhürman said.
Erhürman continued, “Since the local elections were a referendum, you received a rejection from 80 per cent of Nicosia. You received a rejection from 60 per cent of Famagusta, and more than 70 per cent of Kyrenia rejected your views.”
“You brought it up… you opened this box, now come up here and answer,” said Erhürman, stressing that, “Only in İskele [Trikomo] and in Morphou [did you receive support] and even there you received less than 50 per cent of the votes. This means my dear friends that your thesis has been rejected.”
It was a great speech…
How did Tatar respond?
The man speaks, but even he doesn’t understand what he says!
My request to Ambassador Metin Feyzioğlu, your excellency, report this situation to Ankara!
They should relieve the cheerleader from his post. He can’t do his job, he is incompetent!
He keeps on yapping. I’m sure you’re hiring two translators to understand what he is saying!
In the meantime, you know the ones whom you keep saying you love…
Those very Cypriots, in circumstances such as this, would say Tatar has “mucked up”. [sic]
Tatar, a disappointment, a fiasco and an enemy of the people!
CTP leader Tufan Erhürman asked: “Where was the money earmarked for the martyrs’ cemeteries spent?”
The addressee of that question was Tatar!
I asked yesterday and I’m asking again today; “What happened to the extremely unethical and inhumane remarks by Tatar regarding our late athlete Birkan Uzun, which were solely made for political publicity purposes?”
Another question; none of Tatar’s visits to Turkey were “state visits” or “official visits”. Because there are rules concerning “official visits by a head of state to other countries”.
If these rules do not apply, the visit is not “official”, but “private!”
And the expenses of private visits can not be covered by the “state”!
Moreover, let alone the visits to Turkey, the latest visit to the UK was completely “private”…
In fact, apart from “purchasing underwear” and a “visit to the supermarket” there was no “official contact” to speak of. [Translator’s note: Tatar had been mocked by the opposition for posing at stores run by T/Cs in London during his last visit]
He either covers the cost of this visit from his own pocket or I’m sorry but “I hope he chokes” for wasting the public’s money…
Or we should say, if he doesn’t pay from his pocket, he should be tried!
And the monthly Türksat [satellite] fee for his own channel?
I hope it hasn’t been paid from the discretionary fund!
If so, I will curse even more!
And let me warn you, “My curse is very effective”…
What’s the best thing to do?
Tatar, leave everything and go!
To wherever you want!
You are a disappointment, a fiasco, an enemy of the people…
“Even I can’t pay this,” said a “wealthy” friend!
What is it he can’t pay?
The fees demanded by Türksat from the television stations.
Who else can’t pay?
Sim! [Translator’s note: private television channel]
Actually, it’s not only ‘Sim’ that can’t pay!
None of the stations can, because they really can’t!
None of them earns that kind of money!
Even BRTK [Bayrak Radio Television], which runs on state funds does not have that kind of money!
Well, why is Sim the only station then that was taken off the air?
Because the others gave reassurances that “we will pay”!
Well then, could Sim TV not be included in those who gave that promise?
No, it couldn’t!
Well, how did the others manage then?
They were told, “You give the reassurance, sign here and don’t worry about the rest. We will shut down Sim, silence it, and then the government will step in and pay all your fees.”
Sovereign and equal Tatarism!
