European Petition.

I have previously written about the European Citizens Initiative a method of petitioning the European Commission. The Socialists in the European Parliament are to be congratulated in their bid to use the ECI petition to change the law to tax 'financial speculation', or as we know it, a Tobin tax or Robin Hood tax. To succeed this petition must get a million signatures from nine EU countries. I very much hope that Plaid Cymru and their EFA group colleagues in Europe will join with the Socialists in supporting this very worthwhile campaign to tax speculation.
