When Will Politicians Get The Message?

Conservative Home has an article by John Purvis MEP on the proposal from the EU Parliament for a cut in VAT rates in certain areas, by national governments, down to a minimum of 5 per cent.

"The Council of Ministers should now speedily approve these plans so that governments have greater flexibility in applying VAT rates."

Listen JP, like all your fellow EU loving Conservatives why cannot you accept that firstly, 'one size does not fit all' as has been amply demonstrated with those states constrained by their membership of the euro and, secondly and more importantly, we should not be beholden to an unaccountable and unelected body as to what rates, nor types, of taxation we can have in our our damn country - Understand Dumbo?
