Don’t expect to get your present on time this year!
Mariano Rajoy, spanish Prime Minister and Herman Van Romuy, the president of the european council.
I know Scotland are more likely to stay as part of the UK than to leave, but I have always believed that the devolution of power and state is a good thing.
I spotted this flag on the BBC website today. I love the inclusion of black and yellow. Particularly because you can believe that the black is from the cornish flag (which is by far the best county in England).
This image shows the structure of the european union. Let me ask you this. What happens when the commission creates a new law that the majority don’t like? Well the law doesn’t (or sometimes does) get through the european parliament. So what happens if this keeps happening? Nothing because none of the commissioners can be removed by the general public. They are unaccountable, unanswerable and unmovable.
Sometimes you have to admit there are some pretty funny anti-libertarian memes out there
Whenever I look at this chart, I always realise that 3/4 of these taxes are unnecessary and are a huge burden on taxpayers and the economy. Just imagine how much the economy could take off without the likes of petrol, vehicle and inheritance duties. For one, I could afford to buy a car!
It is true, that the French love tax more than most european states. Their hate tax has caused every single successful entrepreneur to leave the country, and the majority moved to london where the highest tax rate is much lower. This is what happens when you raise taxes.
Merkel is involved in this meme because part of her plan is for europe-wide tax harmonisation. Just think about that for a second. I wonder whether all the successful people who contribute more than their fair share in taxes and who provide employment will leave europe altogether.
