  • Unite's Tony Burke reports on union pressure for a Robin Hood Tax in Germany: highlighting a joint press conference by DGB President Michael Sommer and German Chancellor Angela Merkel. David Cameron maintains that a European FTT would uniquely disadvantage the UK, but Germany has the second-biggest financial transactions market in the EU, so Germany would – if Cameron was right – also be a net loser. If only Cameron was less in hock to the financiers of the City! (And if he was less anti-trade union, maybe he could do joint press conferences with the TUC!)
