Jacob Rees-Mogg’s amendments imply that Leavers voted to prevent the EU from meddling into our taxing system and tax-havens, and this is why everyone must join the People’s Vote March in London on 20 October!
Considering the Tory Brexiters’ plan to protect the wealthy tax-dodgers from EU’s new Anti Tax Avoidance Directive everyone must join the People’s Vote March in London on 20 October!
We often hear Brexiters proclaiming ‘Brexit means Brexit’. Two years have passed since the EU referendum, and everyone is still confused about what exactly Brexit means. However, it seems that Tory Brexiters are the only ones that have a clear comprehension about what they expect out of Brexit.
Prominent Tory Brexiters resigned from May’s cabinet, under the pretext that her Chequers Brexit plan keeps Britain tied to too many EU laws, which according to them, this is not what Leavers voted for! One of the key opponents of the May’s Chequers Brexit plan, Jacob Rees-Mogg accused the the British Prime Minister that she is betraying the British people, because she isn’t delivering a Brexit that they voted for!
Assuming that they will ultimately deliver a Brexit that Leavers expect out of their government, Jacob Rees-Mogg proposed four amendments to May’s customs bill, which astonished many, including Leavers who had no idea that they voted to change the tax arrangements between the EU and the UK.
Throughout their Leave campaign, Tory Brexiters raised several issues such as the NHS, migration, sovereignty and other similar issues, but the tax never mentioned by them.
Jacob Rees-Mogg is the chairman of the European Research Group (ERG), a secret organisation that has no website, and even though its members are deciding our future, their names are unknown to the British public.
According to The Guardian, recently Rees-Mogg spoke at Petersfield Churcher’s College, and the ERG issued a summary of his speech, calling on the British to change its tone on Brexit, by refusing a close alignment with EU and leaving the Customs Union.
Amongst his proposed amendments, which will deliver a Brexit in line with “the will of the people”, ERG’s chairman, Jacob Rees-Mogg demanded to terminate any future cooperation between the British and EU tax authorities.
ERG’s chairman, Jacob Rees-Mogg believes that the 52% voted to leave the EU, did so because they don’t want the EU meddling in the British tax affairs, although this issue wasn’t raised by the Tory Brexiteers during their leave campaign.
According to The Guardian, Jacob Rees-Mogg claimed that his tax amendments are essential because May’s Chequers didn’t reflect “the will of the people”, due to the fact that the UK would continue to remain subject to European laws.
Since Jacob Rees-Mogg’s amendments focused on tax relationship with Brussels, one can safely assume that he objects to the EU Directives and Regulations that govern the tax affairs of its member states.
Although his mother-in-law managed to receive £7.6m of the British taxpayer’s contributions for restoring her Wentworth Woodhouse, according to the British official parliament records, back in 2011, Jacob Rees-Mogg opposed EU’s plans to eliminate austerity measures by imposing a financial transactions tax, and called on his fellow MPs to stop the EU from getting “its grubby little hands on it.”
Sharing vital financial information regarding tax avoiding practices between the EU and the UK tax authorities is vital to the implementation of EU’s new Anti Tax Avoidance Directive.
But then again, Jacob Rees-Mogg’s seems to suggest that the 52% who voted to leave the EU expects a Brexit that will prevent the “European Union getting its grubby little hands” on the assets of our wealthy tax dodgers.
The reason why everyone must join the People’s Vote March in London on 20 October!
Even though this might have been the agenda of the Tory Brexiteers and the British newspapers owned by wealthy tax-dodgers, protection of the ongoing tax avoiding practices in the UK isn’t “the will of the people”.
Especially not now, when all EU member states will have to implement EU’s Anti Tax Avoidance Directive and bring an end to the UK’s ongoing austerity measures.
The UK could have left the EU, but still remain in the single market and the customs union, whereby it would still have to implement the EU Anti Anti Tax Avoidance.
However, the extremely intelligent Jacob Rees-Mogg convinced the British Parliament to adopt his amendments, which have destroyed even the slightest possibility of the UK remaining part of the single market and the costumes union, making sure that our tax-dodgers will exempt from the EU Anti Anti Tax Avoidance.
Jacob Rees Mogg’s seems to believe that it is “the will of the people” to prevent the EU endeavours to force the UK to collect the due taxes from our wealthy tax-dodgers, accomplished by his recent amendments to May’ Brexit Plan managed to accomplish.
