The European Parliament has voted in favour of a Financial Transaction Tax.
HMG and the City of London are both vehemently opposed to this. It emerged today that when it was passed in a parliamentary committee in Brussels, one vote could have stopped it. Godfrey Bloom sits on that committee, but guess what? He didn't turn up to cast his vote.
Perhaps he was nursing a hangover or chatting up some Belgian totty, but his vote could have stopped the tax. Tory MEP Vicky Ford gave Bloomers both barrels - no wonder he turned bright red with embarrassment!
Yet another example of how UKIP MEPs have betrayed the British people!
