I don't think that the EEC/EC/EU protection of their market had much to do with having the welfare of it's people in mind. The lobbying European corporations' profits and extra EU tax income were the main drivers. Too much sugar is bad for Europeans anyway, as is over protectionism. 

It is both.

The EU naturally protects its domestic markets and their workers and taxpayers. A good example was the import stop of Thai fish products because of the slave-like conditions on Thai fishing boats. Or shrimp farming with incredible amounts of pesticides. 

Yes, and due to the high tariffs on unfairly produced dumping products, a lot is subsidized with that money within the EU.

The EU is clearly also luring large companies with tax advantages if it can be proven that they create jobs within the EU.

The tax revenue from many employees (wages and sales tax) brings the state more than a high corporate tax. That is why many companies are moving in the past their production to low-wage countries like China.

 

And we don't want to talk about private tax evaders. The UK is on the front line with its Canal Islands.

The EU wants to drain these swamps.

 

And then came the much-celebrated Brexit. The super-rich UK tax avoiders are still grinning with joy and can hardly believe their luck that the UK voter has given them this license.

I will add it to the list of things Brexiteers promised but never happened. 

 

Your filofax must be getting quite full with nonsense quotes.

As far as Brexiteers are concerned, my filofax of nonsense quotes turned into this. And I’m still collecting, so keep going. 

But you are so selective at chosing the quotes you decide to show, the greatest quote of all time "lets get Brexit done" has never had a look in.

Don't fret, neither of those two things will happen.

Well, because of the disproportionately advanced age of so many Brexit supporters, it certainly will not happen in their lifetime.
