imo the cat is out of the bag. eu will not back away from this now.
too much face to lose.
this is robbery on a grand scale perpetrated by the usual
lobbyists and legislators. over 60,000 expats live there
and those who receive pensions from the british government are
assured that the freeze on payments is a precautionary move.
a radio 4 financial article stated that any and all agreed taxes/
confiscations/robberies will be based on account balance from last friday when
the news broke.
this rings an alarm bell because that implies that if a depositor draws
all of his monies from the account and migrates to another offshore offshore,
then they will be followed by a tax/c/r invoice from the amount above the threshold.
it will be interesting to follow events post-lockdown.
edit on 19-3-2013 by fakedirt because: i added confiscation and robberies and it is not in any way connected with what
was said on radio 4.
