BBC NEWS | Business | M&S wins backing in EU tax case

It appears that the EU takeover of the tax system is not assured as France is opposed,
"Eight EU countries, including France and Germany, have backed the UK government in court, fearing they could also lose out if such a precedent were set."
So here is the test is the EU still a mere extension of French politics into other peoples countries or has it out grown them and is a menise to freedom in it's own right. I expect that this is the case and so, despite protests from just about everybody, tax harmonisation is going to happen sooner rather than later. This is a prospect that should particually worry the New Europeans with their Flat Tax and high growth rates.
