The trivia rolls on

One struggles to believe the level of trivia to which the MSM stoops, except that this is par for the course.

There is an interesting story here, about how the chancellor is having to kow tow to Brussels, to regularise the UK tax position, following an ECJ judgement. But none of them can see it – or want to see it. Even though VAT is an EU tax, the EU is invisible to them.

We are dealing with children. And this is what you get from the juveniles in the Failygraph, punctured by The Boiling Frog. Daniel Knowles has it that VAT is not an EU tax. It was introduced by Thatcher "for ideological reasons".

Against that degree of stupidity, there is no known defence.
