A French tax on dividends introduced by the Socialist government in 2012 was struck down by the European Court of Justice on Wednesday.

Companies such as AXA (AXAF.PA), Danone (DANO.PA) and Orange (ORAN.PA) had challenged the tax which was levied as an additional band of corporation tax calculated on dividends paid. The companies argued that it amounted to double taxation. The tax brought in 2 billion euros ($2.22 billion) a year to France’s state coffers.

The AJEF group of French blue-chip companies welcomed the court’s decision, saying in a statement it was a strong signal for France’s attractiveness in terms of the business environment.

We send £350 million a week to the EU – enough to build a new hospital every week

250,000 EU migrants a year come to the UK and five new countries are in the queue to join – including Albania, Serbia, and Turkey – it’s out of control and damages the NHS
It’s safer to take back control and spend our money on our priorities
Imagine if we Vote Leave on 23 June…

BBC: The Great Debate – On 21 June, the BBC will be holding a televised EU debate at the Wembley Arena. The event will feature top names from Vote Leave and the IN campaign. To apply for a place click here.

Vote Leave hits the road

Today marks the launch of the Vote Leave bus tour, with Boris Johnson and Vote leave chair Gisela Stuart kicking things off in Truro. With only 43 days left to go until the referendum, we will be taking our case to the whole country, spreading our positive vision of life outside the EU.

As the bus travels around the country, Cabinet ministers will be joined by people from all walks of life, from doctors and teachers to business people, and of course thousands of volunteers and supporters along the route. People right across the UK want to take back control of the £350 million we give to Brussels every week and instead spend that money on our priorities, like the NHS.

Head of Labour In campaign dismisses £350 million as a ‘drop in the ocean’

At the launch of Labour In for Britain’s battle bus tour, Alan Johnson  claimed that the £350 million  we send to the EU each week would be a ‘drop in the ocean’ for the NHS.  This is a shocking admission. The fact is that the NHS is in crisis and desperately needs more money. Patients struggling to get care on the NHS will rightly think that Mr Johnson is completely out of touch to dismiss a sum of money which could build a fully staffed hospital every week.

The Labour IN chief then went on to say that people who want to Vote Leave are ‘extremists’. However, it is hard to see what is ‘extremist’ about wanting to take back control of the £350 million we send to the EU every week. This is yet another example of the ridiculous claims made by the IN campaign, as they are unable to make a positive argument for staying in the EU.

EU judges make it difficult to extradite dangerous criminals and terrorists

The European Court of Justice yesterday took steps to take control of the UK’s extradition cases. The European Court will use the Charter of Fundamental Rights – which the government originally said would have the same legal effect as The Beano in the UK – in order to decide if we can deport dangerous criminals.

This will make it easier for dangerous criminals and terrorists to remain in the UK. The ruling could have even prevented the extradition of  Abu Hamza had the judgment been made at the time of his extradition case.

These rules should be made by elected lawmakers accountable to the British people – not faceless bureaucrats in Brussels or unaccountable judges in Luxembourg. After we Vote Leave on 23 June, we can take back control of these key decisions and make our country more secure.
