The European Parliament today approved tax measures which would lead to a harmonised corporate tax base (CCCTB) as well as the introduction of tax ID numbers for every European citizen.
UKIP’s Financial Affairs spokesmen Steven Woolfe MEP commented: “This is a shameless attempt to create a centralised EU tax system. By forcing an EU taxpayer ID - effectively a new continental National Insurance number - on every European the EU is laying the foundations for a European tax and making no apologies for it.
“Mr Cameron is peddling lies. This is no reformed EU; a European super-state is the end goal. It already has a Parliament, a currency and a flag; a centralised tax system is currently being implemented followed swiftly by a fully-fledged standing army. There is no such thing as voting for the status quo. Don’t take the risk. Vote Leave.”
