The Brits need to leave.

BBC reports yet another incident involving the British soldiers in Cyprus. The UK has two bases on the island which were left there from the colonial times and were a condition for the independence. For years the soldiers from the bases get out of their bases and go on drunken rampages in the local bars. They usually cause drunken brawls but have committed at least one murder that I can remember (in 1995 I believe).

The Cypriots have tolerated such behavior for some time but since the British government is unable to control its soldiers, a radical solution is needed to end this. The colonial times are over and it's time to kick these remnants of the past out.
