French guy proposes tax on emails 2006-05-31

I’m laughing my ass off.

Alain Lamassoure, a French guy in the European parliament makes a fool of himself and obviously wastes French and European tax money on rediciulous ideas:

He proposes to put taxes on e-mails and text messages. What a joke, eh?
He thinks about 0.00001 €-Cents per e-mail and 1.5 €-Cents per text message.

Ok, I could see that it would be possible (not that it makes sense) to get the money from the local mobile phone providers. But does he have the slightest clue about how communication happens via the internet?

How backwards is he that he’s still thinking in terms of national borders and taxes?

My proposal: Put taxes on your stupid ideas. The more stupid they are, the more you have to pay.
