EU Tax – I shall not pay

Jon Worth blogs Why EU taxation is actually a good idea. Sorry, but I just have to disagree, I cannot see any good in it at all.

Jon says:

Think of what the EU does and how it is paid for.

I have to say Jon, I do little else. I can find no benefit to any member state of the overbearing, over paid, over zealous and over dictatorial paper pushers in Brussels, doing nothing that member states could not manage to do at a far lesser cost on their own, if they saw any use or benefit to the vast majority of regulations that stream out of Brussels to begin with.

Jon seems to think, or perhaps would just like you to think, that the European Parliament has powers, to make laws or set taxation.

The issue to make EU taxation would be to ensure that taxation and representation run together – i.e. parties can put forward different taxation plans before European Parliament elections, and then have the power to put those into practice if they can command a majority in the European Parliament.

Oh the chump, you see it doesn’t matter who has a majority in the European Parliament, they cannot initiate legislation, its the Commission who make the rules, Parliament just rubber stamps it, so there is no representation (other than in the minds of the socialist/communist EU Elite which the USSR had previously used so effectively in their own rubber stamp forum Great Hall of the Peoples.)

Well of course Jon is entitled to his own view, but I don’t expect many to agree with him, and my own response below is awaiting moderation at the time of writing.

If and when the 500m people of the 27 member states approve membership of the EU – maybe.
If and when the EU becomes representative – maybe
If and when the EU Commission passes an audit – maybe.

Until then – NO taxation without representation.

Unio Europaea Delenda Est (for its own good)

Oh, and I will refuse to pay it. I am an Englishman, a Freeman on the Land, I never voted for an EU, I don’t want to be in the club, so not going to play with their ball.

  1. If you don’t want to pay the tax you could always hmmm….
    I dunno……
    Start up some sort of group to try and achieve an E.U referendum or something….
    You know….
    Like direct democracy!

    • You mean like begging, please let me have my say, please please, please.

      We know they dont listen, forcing the Irish to vote twice proved that.

      I know that eventually the only way they can keep this EU together will be by force.
      I am willing to defy them, I am willing to let them show their hand, be forceful, let them make me pay their tax….

    Oh come on, are you trying to imply I am censoring your views? I’m not logged into WordPress 24/7 to approve comments! It has now been approved.

    • Jon, it was a matter of fact statement at the time of publishing. I too do not spend 24/7 on the system, but all too often comments fail to surface from moderation on many pro EU sites.

      However it is refreshing to find a left wing pro EU blogger who is willing to publish dissent. You are a rarity.

    Great plan. I didn’t vote for either of the coalition parties so as an Englishman and a Freeman on the land (sounds good!) I’m going to keep paying VAT at 17.5% from January. I’ll let you know how it goes.
