Yes folks the assault continues - this mans arrogance knows no bounds....

Be sure that after the UK gets out the pressure will increase manifold for us to comply with what is being planned

European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker launched another assault on Irish powers to veto tax matters at European level.

The European Union should scrap some national vetos on tax, he said at his annual State of the Union address to the European Parliament in Strasbourg.
Instead, he suggested that the EU should move to a system of majority voting - comments which would cause concern among the Government here.
Mr Juncker has long been pushing for EU-wide tax reforms to be implemented via qualified majority voting rather than unanimous agreement.

I didn't not like the idea of this proposed Border agency.

I see it as another erosion of national sovereignty would be this proposed agency working with member state border forces, it makes sense for continuity across the entire frontier. However, it can't ever become a replacement for the duty of a state to its own border and the first steps to a federal police force. I believe this is the birth of our version of the FBI with limited powers at first focused on border protection.

It would be too easy for domestic politicians in each scenario to lay blame the EU for domestic failings or actual criminality on that border. The duty of border integrity must first and foremost lie with the member state with the union as support.

Some of the main proposals which are really being led by the French and Germans are ;

Setting some good goals, especially about the donor/recipient relationship with Africa. Africa has huge economic development potential that can only enhance trade and reduce economic imbalances leading to immigration.

The idea for Multinationals paying tax in the countries where profits are earned is fair for levelling the field but for Ireland, it will be a huge loss if this happens.

Border force will degrade national security and replace it with the birth of a Euro FBI.

The euro is increasingly traded globally but the yuan is spreading too. Good point about energy payments.

Tough but fair with UK, I believe a deal has already been done that is mutually beneficial to both.

He also took time out to criticise Social Media group for not tackling extremism. Looks like they are coming down heavy on this hence all the recent changes in online rules being set, looks like they want to end the day of people discussing migrant issues across Europe.

I imagine a lot of what is planned won't happen until after Brexit, they will need to see how that goes before introducing more powers to themselves which would only push people further away from the EU.

It would be interesting though if Ireland was railroaded into accepting a change in tax laws that took our advantage away from attracting and holding onto multinationals. Would our government and political parties support continued membership of the EU?

He is on his way out ? Just the dreams of a soon to be ex-President who by the looks of it can't even afford a different suit and tie. Unless they are his special suit and tie reserved for big days out.

An arrogant buffoon.
Figurehead for an organization of arrogant buffoons.
The EU has overeached itself and can't stop.
It's only going to lead to one thing eventually.

The immediate actors have their snouts deep in the trough.
Won't matter to them.
A very particular type of sociopaths.
