Fainting in Coyles
An occasional letter from the Heart of Euroville

Thursday, April 01, 2004  

The Swedish version of, "A good time to shut up".

Göran Persson, the Swedish PM has just told the low tax economies that they must increase taxes.

Mentioning Poland and Estonia as possible examples of such countries, Mr Persson concluded, "they must also tax their best earners" in an interview with Hufvudstadsbladet.

The Swedish Conservative top-candidate in the European Parliament elections, Gunnar Hökmark, questions whether Mr Persson is in fact arguing in favour of a common European tax regime.

"If that is the case, I will fight it hard and determinedly", Mr Hökmark said according to Swedish Radio.

Good luck Mr Hökmark.
