Conservative musings and comments.

All hail the EU…

The European Court of Justice (ECJ) has today decided to rule that the government now owes Marks and Spencers £3.5m due to wrongly taxing a teacake! Now, I might well be wrong, but surely the ECJ needs to start doing something worthwhile, because this is pathetic. What an absolute waste of time, I just wish that they would do something worthwhile and give the UK back all the money we’ve put into their pathetic little game of who can have the most bureaucratic system in the world.

  1. Would you think it was a waste of time if you were Marks and Spencers and they’d wrongly took millions from you?
    I think having something to make sure the government doesn’t act above its weight, using unfair taxation rules, is a good thing.

  2. £3.5 million matters very little to a company of Marks and Spencers size, and if we’re talking of unfair taxation, then this government has a lot more to answer for then just a teacake.
