Tax it

BBC NEWS | World | Europe | Austrian leader calls for EU tax

"It's absurd that today short-term financial transactions are completely exempted from tax. It's absurd that there are tax gaps - that international aviation is part of a tax gap," he said.

Listen to that outrage that something isn't taxed - the horror!
I think that tells us more about the European mentality than any detailed analysis of his proposal for a EU tax.

Excellent, they can now invent some new taxes & employ a few more bits of pondlife to administer them. Wonderful!

Those crazy square-heads, if they can measure it they want to tax it.

Yeah, and even when they can't measure it they'll give it a go...

They get fat and havn't seen it for a while, so they estimate the tax on it anyhow...
