Can't find a reference to it in English, but according to Sigmalive Schauble said Christophias had previously agreed to the levy on bank deposits. This has been denied by top AKEL officials, but no one believes them any more anyway. http://www.sigmalive.com/news/politics/36196

The fact that the Pinocchio brother, Stephanou and Loucaides, denied it, makes me believe it is true.

What to see what the parties do accept in the end before saying Nik isn't a realist, I don't think there will be much difference to the original deal.

But scottie you said that before and then started commenting when you thought you did know! Who knows? I certainly don't. But it is human nature to speculate and ask about stuff 'you've heard' or read and even about rumours. To discount rumours and leaks these days is just foolish. Unless you rely solely on your politicians to tell you the 'real truth'. When will you consider you 'DO KNOW'? What will it take?

Tang I have lived here a long time ( too long ) I have listened to lies more lies and double lies from the politicians here They are a law unto themselves . What will it take for me to comment ? ...Signatures on paper signed and countersigned ( preferably in blood ) . They thrive on these rumours and gauge public feeling by them, I will give them no fodder

D'ya think they are reading your posts on here then? And you ARE commenting - all the time - even if only to keep saying NO COMMENT. If you aren't interested in what anyone's got to say about it all or reading what they've heard and read about it. Why don't you wait to say anything until you've been given a copy of the final deal signed in blood by all parties? Other people do wish to comment and speculate and I can't see that's hurting anyone so what's the point of keep seeming to cast your disapproval on them doing that?

Posted By: scottie

My goodness. I was asked for my opinion on something and I said on a personal level no comment. I have no objections to anyone giving their views ( who on earth am I to do so ), However surely you cannot deny me my right not to comment. The answer your question do they read forums, the answer is yes. On three occasions I have gone onto the BHC site asked a question and surprise surprise found myself referred to this very forum for the answer. I appreciate that people are worried and rightly so, they have every right to air their fears, I just do not choose to air mine

Lost of people are knocking Nick for taking what was on offer, but what alternatives are many of the Knick-knockers suggesting?
