The Task Force for Raising European's Cost of Living Strikes Again

In case you thought "The Task Force for Raising European's Cost of Living" ( aka the EU Commission ) was getting tired after their quests for raising the price of diapers and plastic bags, think again.

It seems now that they have caved in for the demands from protectionist countries like France, Spain, Portugal, Italy and Poland and announced continued tariffs against shoe imports from China and Vietnam.

Free trade oriented countries with no domestic shoe industry like Britain and Sweden have protested, but they seem to count for less than the shoe producing countries.
