Cyprus bailout

State theft of people's savings. As simple as. This is what the EU is doing to people.

A report came out earlier this year from Philip de Backer, a Belgium politician advocating the idea of EU Member States (they can't say the word "country" anymore...) stating that the EU states should take money from people's bank accounts in more prosperous countries (such as British households) and give it to the ones less well off, such as in the southern\Mediterranean countries.

And to think that all Conservative, Liberal Democrat and Labour MEPs voted for this to go through. It was only UKIP and BNP who voted against.

Should this thread not be in CA? It could get crayoned on. It seems a bit too sensible for here.

They have certainly crossed the rubicon with this latest act of grand larceny in this tale of woe that is the EU single currency.

The thing that bothers me is that if the Cypriots get away with this the UK government will think it's OK for us too.What little cash I have saved will be withdrawn tomorrow and stuffed under the mattress.

It might not be such a bad idea if it goes ahead, 80% + of the money collected would be from the Russian/Bulgarian Mafia who have been using the Cypriot banks for years to launder & stow their in gotten gains within the EU.

I hear Putin's saying it's a dangerous plan, especially as Russia has about £20Bn invested!

I feel bad for the small man in the street.
But as Scouse mentions most of the Deposits are from wealthy Russians. Screw them.

Indeed, assuming that is correct (which I am not disputing, seems logical and can't be arsed to check), very uncomfortable to have such bedfellows. At least I have the comfort in knowing that it is for totally different reasons.

Translation please! This is the first step to releiving you of any progress made to your sense of security. It has been well publicised that governments are run by socio/phsyco -paths who have no sense of empathy!

Be worried! And if you backed Guzzler for a seat-be very worried!

Well, to be fair most of the Cypriots have been a bit slow in paying tax for years so it's about time they got their arse bitten.

And the 20% of people who have saved are just collateral damage?





I pity the Brussels Eurocrats who have pushed this onto the Cypriot authorities. How do you spell "double tap"?:plotting:
