Urban myths and taxes

How embarrassing for the BBC. European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso has been voted Britain's most powerful man in a radio 4 poll, ahead of Tony Blair, Gordon Brown and even Rupert Murdoch!

"BBC political editor Nick Robinson says voters may be using the poll to say Europe has too much power.".

If former Europe Minister Dennis McShane dismisses the suggestion that Britain's laws are decided by Europe as 'an urban myth', can Britain avoid Austria's proposal for a European wide tax?

Is it an 'Urban myth' that tax legislation is already decided in Europe?

Customs duty is decided by Brussels. Theiving shits.

I'm always glad that Britain is an EU member when duty free goods only apply to those travelling beyond the EU!
