Penalties for late payment. The breeding grounds of patriotism. Recently, in the tax office over. "Your application for tax refund? Can take a few weeks ..." At the next counter a taxpayer is being chastened, "your payment was due on 10th and which is today?" The 11th. Therefore late payment penalties for unacceptable dereliction of duty in respect of public interest. That's right. Just imagine that because of this delay, a NATO bombing in Afghanistan / Syria / Libya / Iraq / in ... detonated an hour later than planned by military, possibly in the vicinity of children at play! Because then you'd be guilty, taxpayer! The tax cents in the first place must arrive punctually at the tax fund for saving bankrupt banks and insolvent sister states in Southern Europe timely, preferably before the parliamentary vote actually necessary takes place - as this vote reliably can be expected since parliament empirically says yes to all of government's wishes. Not to mention the peace and sympathy backing EU contributions, the contributions to global climate saving and many other infinitely important things. It is all quite correct. (2004).
