Flat Tax Blues

On the subject of the conflict over taxation between new and old Europe, TFIAFC has a great quotation from a New European who has not yet come to realise what the EU is all about.
Why should we be punished for the flat tax?” said Jozef Uhrlik, CEO of Volkswagen Slovakia, after a panel discussion in Bratislava last week. He then launched into a criticism of the union’s “irrational” labour policy, “unrealistic” environmental policy and massive agricultural budget. “We have implemented something that is rational,” he added.'
Rational yes, Euro-Politically correct No. When the Franco German alliance sees the EU as a protection against the pressures of globalisation, they can hardly be expected to welcome globalisation into the EU.
