Willy Hutton really is a fucking idiot, isn\’t he?

There are many possibilities, ranging from taxing companies on their turnover in the UK to outlawing the use of tax havens, action that is best delivered if the EU can move together, but this is always opposed by the British.

Dear God you miserably stupid twat.

It\’s the European Union\’s Single Market laws that state that Amazon can sell into the UK from Luxembourg, that Google and Facebook can from Ireland. Not just that: the Single Market rules positively encourage them to do so. That\’s the point of the Single Market.

It\’s fine to call for withdrawal so you can tax economic activity in the UK. It\’s fine to call for more integration into Europe. But you don\’t get to whine about the former when you support the latter.

  1. You also, I think, under EU law cannot tax on the basis of sales or turnover, except by way of the EU’s own VAT.

  2. What I want to know is why no politician of any colour has mentioned the effect of the Single Market in these “scandals”? They are surely aware but say nothing, funny that…

  3. Not sure all politicians are so aware as to understand all the results and implications of the Single Market, having only looked where they were told at the positives.

  4. I think it makes sense. It is the same logic as those people who knew the Euro would bring about the present mess but supported it anyway because the crisis would force further federalism.

    Hutton knows that this non-problem is caused by the EU, but simply wants to argue that the way out of it is more EU-related goodness. A more powerful Federal EU state for instance. Which will cause more problems of course. The solution for which, I think we can safely predict, will be more Federalism.
