The Wheels Fall Off Cyprus's State Sponsored Theft Plan

As George Osborne (clearly caught by surprise by the theft of people's savings in Cyprus) announces that the UK will compensate British troops and British government workers in Cyprus hit by the planned "bank levy", it seems that the wheels are already falling off this harebrained idea.

In order for the bailout, and planned state sponsored theft, to take place the Cypriot Parliament has to ratify it. The debate was to have taken place today. However, as a result of the not unsurprising outpouring of anger by Cypriot citizens over the smash and grab raid on their accounts, it has now been postponed until tomorrow.

I will wager that this odious plan will die a very painful death, as the politicians are made to realise that theft (especially when orchestrated by the state) will not be tolerated by the people.
