The mighty elephant has laboured and brought forth (or fifth?) a mouse. So it is that the Taxpayers' Alliance has finally woken up to the fact that we are in the European Union and has come up with a report telling us that it has produced an awful lot of regulations in the last few years.

Which demonstrates why this blog is essential.

From the way you've phrased it, it sounds like the TPA is very critical of the "regulatory machine" of the EU. Why, then, does it not just demand we leave? Is it that desperate to cosy up to the Conservatives?

That's exactly the point. You would think that, having identified this terrible burden on British business, there would be only one conclusion to be drawn. But no! The TPA comes up with this fatuous, irrelevant little propositions which will make absolutely no difference at all, even if they were implemented in full - which they won't be.

I really do wonder what they think they are playing at!

As Sam said - I suspect there are elements of the TPA wishing to cosy up to a future Conservative administration. This has some relevance to Helen's argument on the Bruges Group Blog about The State The Right Is In. Not only is the Conservative party refusing to be conservative and discuss the 'elephant' in the room in a reasonable manner, but neither are the supposedly independent conservative organisations. Incidentally, the TPA along with a few other select think-tanks (Open Europe for example) only exist in their current form and size because the Conservative party has allowed and actively supported them to do so.

I think this blog is very important because it reinforces arguments based on reason and fact - two things which seem to have pretty much disappeared from our political system.

Hey,. why not just tell the Europeans to piss off? Pretty simple.

No Europery!

Apparently "Canada" contains forbidden characters

Can you believe it? Dave shits his emotional pornography into the wide and waiting mouths of the media.

The depravity and degeneracy of today's politicians makes me choke with rage.

These ostensibly sceptical think tanks seem to be scared of logical conclusions.
Your point about pre-emptive legislation, such as introducing random breath tests before being told to do so by EU directive, is like a cancer patient reaching for the gun. The death certificate will say suicide but that does not tell the whole story. Better to cut out the cancer. Or at least try to. These think tanks are offering merely more detailed death certificates rather than surgical advice.

Nice riposte, it would be good to find the TPA standing up for the taxpayers, for once. I am afraid that the time has come where being nasty is the only response to what is currently happening. We have three "political" parties, all the same, not a cigarette paper between them. Someone has to stand up and take the lead. Napolean tried a takeover and we had to fight them, has the time come for another scrap, good for industry! No politician is listening to the people who elected him and Parliament has been sidelined/destroyed.

The plot thickens.
BUT! with Germany being home to one third, repeat! One Third of the Worlds tax laws, we can see who has added the thickening!

With Germany being home to the only economy that can bail out the euro, we'll see how far their commitment to post-nationalism goes. PDT_Armataz_01_36
