- Faces of the victims: Heroic Sydney cafe manager, 34, shot dead as he grabbed terrorist’s gun to protect hostages – and the brilliant young barrister and mother of three who died after the siege ended
- At least 100 people, most of them children, have been killed in a Taliban assault on an army-run school in the Pakistani city of Peshawar, officials say.
- End of democracy in Turkey, Erdogan acts like Hitler. Arrests of Turkish journalists widely condemned across the world.
These are the words from Mr Juncker, the President of the European Commission.
Jean-Claude Juncker was until last December the prime minister of Luxembourg and the EU’s longest serving leader until he was forced to resign last year in a bizarre scandal involving illegal phone tapping by the Grand Duchy’s secret service.
Luxembourg’s fiscal policy and tax agreements with hundreds of multinational firms transformed his country from an economy based on industry to one based on finance.
Tax deals with Luxembourg save companies billions, companies like Amazon, Ikea, Burberry, Deutsche Bank, Pepsi, Procter & Gamble, Heinz, JP Morgan and FeEx. Such ‘saved’ Taxes are money, which is urgently needed for the social sector.
Imagine, that a handful of working people pay more taxes than those companies, who have their ‘Headquarters’ in Luxembourg. Headquarters which in fact are nothing more than a post address/mailbox!
I really do believe in a United Europe, but not in those leaders. Dismiss them, put them into prison and the world will be a little better.
