Thread: Paul Murphy MEP Ripped His Irish Property Tax Form Apart In The European Parliament

  1. #1

    Default Paul Murphy MEP Ripped His Irish Property Tax Form Apart In The European Parliament

    Paul Murphy MEP has just ripped apart his Irish property tax form in the European Parliament in a response to the revelations in the US Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigation revealing tax dodging activities by multinational corporations in Ireland. It will be interesting to watch how Phil Hogan responds to this.

    What action do you think can be taken? Is it illegal to tear up forms now?

    Paul Murphy MEP is (unsurprisingly) acting the clown.

    No action need be taken other than pointing out that the man is a clown.

    The Twitpic I'd like to see is of the faces of other socialists in the chamber during Paul's performance.

    We all complain about nothing being done in the European parliament, but could you imagine if every MEP decided to waste the continents time with their own domestic grandstanding? If you want to bitch about domestic policy, become a TD or senator. If you want to bitch about Europe's policys, become an MEP.
