OK. He is not President of the European Union anymore but he is remembered as the person who never saw Brexit coming. The Sun – a newspaper most Danes regards a one of the most serious and in deep newspapers in the United Kingdom – published on November 1, 1990 its famous “Frog Off” front-page.
As we Danes see it the European Union is only good for the people in suit and ties who want to avoid paying taxes in Denmark. Apples case where they were able to hide illegal in Denmark is only the top of Iceberg. In Denmark we saw Microsoft move their invoicing of the Microsoft Business Solutions programs from Denmark to Ireland overnight. We can only guess how little they were able to pay in taxes in Ireland.
The European Unions are only good for criminals and as more expensive they choose to dress, as easier it is for them to escape taxation and justice. That is the monster this person did more than most people to create – a place where we ordinary people are forced to work longer and longer before we can retire. A place where our children have to give up their dreams and ambitions because they can no longer get student grants but have to live of a college fund their parents never knew they had to create when they paid more than half of their income in taxes to finance their children’s education.
I will always remember this man as a stain in modern European history: A person, who damaged my plans for my retirement. A person, who damaged the future of my children.
