Gender Pay Gap

Courtesy of The Albion Alliance Presents we find this from the EU Commission.

Now there may be grounds for believing that a 'male dominated' company board may have an 'in-built' aversion to female colleagues - but if a woman shows ability and aptitude (eg, Karen Brady), then surely on commercial and business grounds she would be appointed? 'Market forces'?

But, in the EU's mantra of equality, we learn:
"After a year, the EU will assess progress. If it is unsatisfactory, the Commission will look at steps - including a law - to force change at the top."
So besides our inability to govern ourselves as we wish, we no longer will have the ability to manage our own companies as we wish.

And the EU is not "totalitarian"? 

So people, if our politicians don't have the "cojones" to get us out of this madhouse - shall we show them how it is done?

They already have the Norwegian experience to study - no need for a new law unless they just like new laws.

From my understanding of the definition of Fascist, I believe the EU is a Fascist organisation.
