EU transaction tax? No thanks!

The Fourth Reich is at it again!

They’ve had this great idea about how to get us to pay loads of money to support a monetary system that we are not even part of. It’s called a ‘financial transaction tax’.

The idea is that in order to support all the failing European banks, we should have a tax on all financial transactions paid into a fund that then used to bail out any future ailing banks. On the face of it, this is not totally unreasonable – although it is probably unworkable. Like most EU plans, really…

Britain opposes this plan because it is a major financial centre and would be hit hard by such a tax. Banks might be bastards, but they are not stupid bastards. They know they can work around this tax by simply wrapping up their transactions in such a way as they appear to be happening in places where the tax doesn’t apply.

Also, I cannot see a reason why our taxes should be used to support the failing Euro. Needless to say the Germans and French think it’s a great idea. After all, it all helps to cripple the old enemy – Britain – and progresses their master plan for the domination of Europe.

One voice of common sense comes from Belgium who quite rightly suggest that this doesn’t really apply to all 27 EU member states, so perhaps it should only apply to the Euro zone. On the face of it, it does seem more sensible, but then again this means that the EU won’t be able to increase our budget contribution by the back door.

So if this does all come to pass, I wonder if “Call me Dave” will let us have a vote on it? You know, like the one he promised to let us have on staying in the EU if he won the election…

I’m not holding my breath…

  1. "Needless to say the Germans and French think it's a great idea. After all, it all helps to cripple the old enemy – Britain – and progresses their master plan for the domination of Europe."If they're clearly the enemy, why do we continue with all this EU nonsense? Maybe we're up to our eyeballs in traitors.

  2. I agree MF – why indeed? And the biggest traitor of the lot was Edward Heath who sold us down this river in the first place.See http://damned-to-hell.blogspot.com/2010/07/we-should-do-real-number-on-him.html

  3. "Banks might be bastards, but they are not stupid bastards" and they are OUR bastards.
