Controversial Rich Tax Passes French Constitutional CouncilThe controversial French tax to be levied on companies that pay salaries of more than 1 million euros/$AU1.55 million a year has been approved.

France’s constitutional council gave the green light to the temporary but controversial “millionaire tax”, a signature policy of president Francois Hollande designed as a 75 per cent tax to be paid by high earners.

Australia Quietly Shift Settlement PolicyAustralia’s Federal Government has very quietly backflipped it’s position on the construction of Jewish settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories.

The current tight-lipped approach to implementation has seen NO information released on the governments change in Middle East policy.

In a statement released today, the Department of Foreign Affairs confirmed the policy shift, saying it reflects the Government’s concern that Middle East resolutions should be balanced. The statement says the Government considers each resolution on a case-by-case basis and will not support those which are one-sided or pre-judge the outcome of negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian territories.

However, diplomats warn the fragile relationship is on rocky ground after Australia signalled it would abstain from voting at the United Nations on motions that condemn the expansion of Israeli settlements :: Read the full article »»»»
