Since June 2011, when the European Commission announced it would propose an FTT, it had been obvious that the plan would not fly...
Apparently heedless that the object was immoveable, José Manuel Barroso, the Commission president, last week made yet another attempt to exert irresistible force in support of the tax. He told members of national parliaments and the European Parliament that the revenue raised by the tax would allow member states a cut of up to 50% in their contributions to funding the EU.
Perhaps Barroso's intransigence is inspired by the unfortunate fact that the FTT proposal was central to the Commission's plans for financing the EU's multiannual financial framework (MFF) for 2014 to 2020.
