VAT on Fuel vote: More evidence that we have no power

The result of the vote and more to the point the arguements about the idea of dropping the VAT rise on fuel are a classic illustration of what is wrong with this country, and why we must have a vote on our future relations with the EU.

I rarely do this, but I am going to put up the statement by Nigal Farage on the subject because I think he makes the point well,

"The Tories didn't dare do it, the Lib Dems don't care about it and frankly the Labour Party isn't there on the subject at all" said Nigel Farage this afternoon, after the Labour proposal to scrap the VAT increase on Fuel was defeated in the House of Commons due to EU rules that ban more than three rates of VAT duty.

"To do what Balls wanted would break EU law", he went on, "But all that the Government have managed to do by pointing this out is to show their utter weakness in the face of Brussels dictat".

"When will they get it into their thick heads that they, and the Labour Government before them have given away the independence of this country?" He said.

"Think about it for a moment. The Conservative led Government defeats an Labour motion to reduce tax, by boasting that it doesn't have the power to set UK tax rates.

Extraordinary, and disgraceful. And Mr Cameron refuses to offer a referendum because he thinks that we are better off in the EU?"

"Will somebody please tell me what the point is of Mr Cameron? What is the point of his Government? We would be better and more honest closing down Westminster and opening it up to tourists - carefully remembering not to give discounts to UK citizens - because that would breach EU equality legislation", said Farage.

The fact Belgium has been operating without a government for the last 12 months shows how right this concept is! We are an impotent country no matter what the politicians we elected tell us. The Un-elected EU commissioners are running our country and we let it all happen with barely a whimper. None of the citizens of the strongest (economically) country in the world would not accept it, imagine the US handing over their lawmaking to Mexico, that would cause the shit to hit the fan! What do we do? Wring our hands and dutifully hand over more money. Complete madness!


under what law does this astor /bilderburger criminal deny the legitimate right of the English people to decide thier future,and why do the people accept that this scum has that right?
