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.
