Papandreou, Sarkozy prepare EU-wide carbon tax

According to various outlets such as People's Daily Online, Greek prime minister George Papandreou has supported the ideas of Nicolas Sarkozy to introduce a European continental climate tax. It could help the European finances, they say.

In recent days, a new wave of hysteria about the PIGS - Portugal, Ireland, and possibly Spain joining the Greek problems - has flourished in the markets. See The Telegraph.

Well, Papandreou is surely the right name to lead the whole continent to a solution of financial problems. His pathetic family has transformed a once great civilization into a preposterous dying socialist charade and a banana republic drowning in debt. Needless to say, the Greek citizens have to be blamed, too. They have systematically voted for these painful populist left-wing clowns.

I have still thought that the European Union is bringing countries such as my own more advantages than disadvantages although it was becoming a close call recently. However, if the EU-wide carbon tax that would exceed one or two percent of the GDP were adopted, I would surpass the threshold and become a clear advocate of our exit from the EU.
