And Then, Scary Stuff...

Two scary things for you to think about. The first is shamelessly copied from Nourishing Obscurity and made me smile a while a while ago:

Dear paranoid people who check behind shower curtains for murderers: If you find one, what’s your plan?

The second scary thing didn’t make me smile in the slightest and I trust the Leave Campaign people get all over it like a rash. Sorry? What’s the Leave Campaign? Good question. I believe it’s just a group of people who’ve been designated as the Leave group and given some money on the understanding they keep very, very quiet.

Here’s a snip:

“Proper identification of taxpayers is essential to effective exchange of information between tax administrations. The creation of European Taxpayer Identification Number (EU TIN) would provide the best means for this identification. It would allow any third party to quickly, easily and correctly identify and record TINs in cross-border relations and serve as a basis for effective automatic exchange of information between member states tax administrations.”

Anyhoo, gird up your thingies, bob over to Euro Guido and wonder what’s just down the tracks. Tell you wot; the lights wot you see ain't tail-lights, okay citizen?

I especially liked the comment by IvorSchwartzporsche, probably not his/her proper name, to whom I apologise for nicking it.

EU's four-stage strategy to reduce Britons to servitude.
Stage One is mock-incredulity:
"No one is proposing any such thing. It just shows what loons these sceptics are that they could even imagine it."
Stage Two is bravado:
"Well all right, it's being proposed, but don't worry: we have a veto and we'll use it."
Stage Three is denial:
"Look, we may have signed this, but it doesn't really mean what the critics are claiming."
Stage Four is resignation:
"No point complaining now, old man: it's all been agreed."

Quote;  David Cameron.

“Because with courage and conviction I believe we can deliver a more flexible, adaptable and open European Union in which the interests and ambitions of all its members can be met.”
