Re: The Vindictive Nastiness if the EU
The EU has developed an internal single market through a standardised system of laws that apply in all member states. EU policies aim to ensure the free movement of people, goods, services and capital within the internal market, enact legislation in justice and home affairs, and maintain common policies on trade and regional development
For the corrupt this type of geo-political arrangement, still in its infancy, operating across the borders of so many nation states on a single continent is a godsend. It provides an opportunity to harmonize and standardize practices in order to reduce risk and ensure even greater success of criminality paying off.
It wasnít until February 2014 that the EU published its very first report on corruption and calculated that corruption was affecting all 28 nations within the bloc amounting to Ä120bn euros.
Probably higher now since this was published.
