Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras on his visit to London this week; met with his British counterpart Theresa May, as well as the leader of the Labour Party Jeremy Corbyn.

Tsipras with his meeting with Corbyn discussed the possibilities of cooperation among the left and progressive forces of Europe.

The two leaders also discussed the Brexit issue, the latest developments in the European Union, the rise of the far right and several populist parties, the refugee issue, and the recent FYROM name developments.

Tsipras meets Jeremy Corbyn

Corbyn congratulated Tsipras on how he dealt with both the refugee and FYROM issues and in particular on Greece’s contribution to the refugee issue. The Labour Party leader compared it to other European countries which have not contributed to the issue but have, as he said, reinforced xenophobia and racism instead.

The two party leaders also discussed the Cyprus issue, with the Greek PM reiterating his set position for a fair and sustainable solution.

Tsipras also thanked Corbyn for his recent statement regarding the return of the Parthenon Marbles.

Tsipras also had a meeting with the Archbishop of Thyateira and Great Britain Gregorios, and with young Greek scientists working in London at the Greek Centre of London.

On Tuesday, the Greek premier was received by Theresa May in Downing Street and later with Jeremy Corbyn.

Tsipras delivered a speech at the London Business School on Wednesday.

Popular British-born Cypriot, Panayiotis (Pani) Argyrou sadly died in the early hours of Tuesday morning, 24th April 2018 at the age of 29 after fighting an illness with so much dignity.

Whilst his family and many of his close friends knew that Pani was ill, the news of his passing has sent shockwaves through the Cypriot community across the UK, with many taking to social media to express their sadness and condolences.

Panayiotis was born on 6th March 1989 in London and was the second eldest of three siblings.

His mother and father are also British-born, with his paternal grandparents being from Eftakomi and Avgorou and his maternal grandparents from Morphou.

Panayiotis grew up in north-west London, predominantly in Kingsbury, and attended Our Lady of Grace Primary School in Neasden, followed by St Gregory’s Catholic Secondary School in Kenton. Business Studies was his chosen subject at Middlesex University.

Many Cypriots in the UK knew Panayiotis, (known as ‘Pani’). He was an active member of St Panteleimon Greek Orthodox Church in Harrow and enthusiastically organised several trips across the UK and abroad for the Church community. He was also Chair of the Graduates Organisation of the Church.

Along with that, Pani was a founder member, treasurer and sponsor of St Panteleimon FC who play in the Middlesex County Football League.

As proprietor of the well-known and popular restaurant, “Panorama” in Whetstone, and was also a partner in the Orama Restaurant in Hatch End, enjoying a very active business life.

A good friend and listener of London Greek Radio, he would often use the medium of radio to promote his events and business to the community. LGR management and staff were shocked and saddened on hearing of Pani’s passing, with some reflecting on the last time they saw him at the Basile event held in February at the Millfield Theatre.

Pani also assisted to bring renowned Greek singers to perform in the UK and he was instrumental in bringing the famous Greek-American comedian Basile to our shores.

He is survived by his mother, Georgina; his father, Argyros; brother, Antonaki; and sister, Maria.

The Funeral Service takes place on Wednesday 9th May 2018 at 11.00 am at the church of St Panteleimon, Kenton Road, Harrow, Middlesex, HA3 9QN.

Everyone at London Greek Radio shares in the community’s sadness and we extend our condolences to Pani’s family.
