The EU Commission's Struggle For Higher Prices

The EU Commission should perhaps rename itself "The Task Force For Raising European's Cost of Living". First I read in Swedish news paper Dagens Nyheter about how they attack certain countries for having a too low VAT on diapers. Cheap diapers? Well, thank goodness we have the EU Commission to attack that problem.

And then I read in EU Observer about how the EU Commission will attack another great problem: cheap plastic bags. To deal with that problem, a 15% tariff will be slapped on plastic bags from China and Thailand.

So here we see the justification for the existence of the EU Commission: we pay sky-high salaries to a bunch of bozos and their bureaucrats so that we will have to pay a lot more for consumer goods. Does that make sense to you?
