It is reported that the EU is drawing up plans to subsidise holidays around the EU for poorer citizens, pensioners and students.
The EU claims that “tourism is a human right” and that it would help promote cultural diversity. Financial incentives would be given for travel off-season to help boost the tourism industry. The plans could cost hundreds of millions of euros.
I have just published an article in French dealing with this odd issue. Read it on Contrepoints.
