A GROUP OF MEPs has tabled a motion in the European Parliament demanding that Ireland double its corporation tax rate of 12.5%.

The motion, which has been proposed by members from a number of the parliament’s groupings including the Socialist and Green groupings, argues that the financial burden now being backed by Europe – through its agreement to provide a bailout for Ireland’s banking sector – should be acknowledged by Ireland through an agreement to remove some of its competitive advantage.

Typical insanity from the euro-veggies and their commie fool brothers.

May they take a running jump

Make no mistake the majority of this €85billion bailout is being used to save French and German banks who lended recklessly to irish banks and now do not want to face the consequences.

Picking chunks from our corpse? Can't say the sentiment is noble.

So sunshine, if that proposal fails because the EU has no competence in relation to corporate tax rates, will you then admit that Lisbon does not make any change in this area? ... Thought not.

France and Germany do not actually seem to be onside for this corporation tax rise any more, now that they are committed to lending Ireland money, and therefore looking for a return on their capital. At least, I hope not.

Listen they'll demand 25% then another european talking head will come out in support of Ireland and a deal will be brokered for anything between 15 and 20% corp tax. Then you'll have eijits on here saying we should be grateful it's not the 25% first mentioned.

They are waging a financial war on us we must default on the bank debt before it's too late

Of course it's true. Where do you think Anglo and the other Irish banks were getting the money to loan out to building developers?

German banks were shoveling their money into Irish banks because they could not lend it at home, and making a nice return on it. Now we are being criticised for lack of supervision and allowing our banks to lend recklessly.

We are certainly guilty of this, but who was supervising the German banks when they were lending recklessly to Irish banks to fuel our property boom?

There is plenty of blame to go around, and plenty of pain too. Ireland should not have to take all of it.

Was gonna say we should boycott french and german cars, but the irish elite would never go for it.

But we could send Ollie rehn a message, say no to finish products. Boycott Nokia!!

Great the Irish economy isn't going well and the answer European socialist MP's come up with is double our corporation tax. I think that is why these people are MEPs and not electable to any representative body with real power!

Relax!

The IMF is providing much of the cash and the MEPs are just mouthing

The IMF is supportive of low tax rates.. The Yanks pull the IMF strings and US corporate lobbyists will ensure that the 12.5% remains.

edit - Corporate lobbyists = Republican Party (No, not FF) = low tax

Of course, the main bond holders in Irish banks are the ECB, and German and French Finance houses. Guido Fawkes has a full list on his site. Just google him! Of course Eoghanacht has the link above!
