Another ploy for ever closer union!

Proposals by the EU to move from unanimity to qualified majority voting in a bid to show it is serious about tackling tax evasion, have been described as a “ploy” towards ever closer union by a West Midlands MEP.

Brexiteer James Carver, who has argued against the march of federalism across Europe for more than 20 years, fears the move will lead to tighter controls of nations’ taxation by Brussels.

He said: “The proposed change in the voting system will mean that objectors lose their say and individual nations will be railroaded into relinquishing their sovereign right to manage their own taxation systems.

“Thank goodness we will be out of it – but I fear for other nations. As more cracks appear in the EU plan for a United States of Europe more countries are likely to break away in search of their own destiny.”

EU commission eyes majority tax rules

The commission plans to address tax avoidance schemes in some EU states by shifting tax decisions away from unanimity to a majority system in what amounts to a long shot.
