£510 EU income tax

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

According to the Daily Express, the European Federation has drawn up plans to finance itself with a £510 direct tax á-la income tax.

The plans have been drawn up by eurofederalist MEP’s rom the Committee on Regional Development.

The direct tax will be in addition to reduced national contributions and will supposedly reflect the relative prosperity of each member state.  The report also says that rebates are “manifestly no longer justified” so, as the European Federation’s most prosperous member state and the second highest contributor to the European Federation’s budget despite having a 33% budget, I think we can safely say that this would cost us a serious amount of money.

    And you believe the Daily Express!!! owned by porn pusher Richard Desmond.

    This is the same paper which has been going on about House Price crashes for 5 years or more.

    I don’t blindly trust anything any newspaper says but the article said:

    It adds that, “in the search for such a link due considerationbe given to paying part of an identified direct tax” to the Union’s budget.

    As for the Daily Express in particular, I wouldn’t wipe my arse with the paper let alone read it. 😆
