"Juncker made sure companies such as Pepsi, Ikea, Procter & Gamble, Heinz, JP Morgan and FedEx could enjoy the fantasy life of the Grand Duchy of tax avoidance. Meanwhile, the rest of the unelected Brussels have loaded austerity onto working people and small and medium businesses across the EU.
"It is no surprise these are some of the multinationals which insist Britain must stay in the EU. They see the protection of their gilded tax breaks in Luxembourg as one of the benefits of supporting their friends at the top of the EU.
"What is also no surprise is that Jean-Claude Juncker was prime minister when all this tax manipulation was going on. When Juncker was head of the eurogroup he admitted that when economic issues become serious 'you have to lie.' Now he presides over a European Commission whose own auditors have yet again refused to sign off on the annual accounts.
"Perhaps now some supporters of the EU will come to the same way of thinking as UKIP, which is that the EU encourages tax tourism. The structures of the EU encourage multinationals to engage in the kind of creative accounting that is denied to ordinary hard working people across the EU.
"UKIP supports the principle of low taxation for all, and we oppose the kind of privileges that Juncker and the other cronies of corporate tax manipulation support."
