    Default #VINB Mon 25/3/2013: Cyprus - problem solved?

    Cyprus struck a last-minute bailout deal, aimed at preventing it becoming the first country forced out of the euro.
    The deal:
    * spares deposits below €100,000;
    * Cyprus's second-largest bank, Laiki Bank, closes. Its €4.2bn in deposits over €100,000 to be placed in a "bad bank". Those with deposits less than €100,000 to see their accounts transferred to the Bank of Cyprus. All lenders to Laiki see their investments wiped out, in a first for a eurozone bailout;
    * Bank of Cyprus survives, but faces huge restructuring. No bailout money to be used to recapitalise the bank - its shareholders and bondholders to be hit instead. It is thought those with over €100,000 at the bank face losses of around 30%. Getting the bank to healthy EU-mandated capital levels is made harder because Bank of Cyprus inherits a €9bn debt Laiki had with the ECB.

    So what does #VINB’s panel think of it all. A good or a bad deal? Expect some very interesting comments tonight …

    Is Vinnie back???
    When a man sits with a pretty girl for an hour, it seems like a minute. But let him sit on a hot stove for a minute and it's longer than any hour. That's relativity.

    Poor Vinny. They really lashed on the make-up tonight. I know drag queens who wouldn't use as much.
