In an action that can only be described as "state sponsored theft", depositors in Cypriot banks will be hit with a one off tax on their savings, as part of the €10 billion bailout for Cyprus from the euro zone and the International Monetary Fund.
Accounts with more than €100,000 will be taxed at 9.9%,
those with less at 6.75%. The money will be taken on Tuesday (Monday being a bank holiday).
It is clear that the governments of the Eurozone will do anything to keep the failed Euro experiment alive, resorting to state sponsored theft as and when required.
Clearly those with money deposited in Eurozone accounts cannot trust the governments of the Eurozone. Anyone with any commonsense will withdraw their money immediately, and place it outwith the Eurozone.
Oh and by the way, the fact that the money will not be taken until Tuesday gives people three days to empty their accounts via ATMs.
Rest assured this insane idea will cause a run on the banks in Cyprus, and will cause catastrophe in the financial markets on Monday.
