A new political party of young people & the entrepreneur

Am I missing a part of this story?

The Austrian-Canadian entrepreneur and founder of Magna International,Frank Stronach, has again been talking about ‘investing several million Euros’ in support of a new political party. See the report here in the Austrian Times.

He’s reported as being willing to ‘provide a new political party of young people with “a lot of money”’ if he gets “…..the feeling that there are the right people with the right political programme.”

So what would that programme look like? Well it should include “……simple and fair taxation system. I suggest a flat rate…”. Austria should slash “bloated bureaucracy” and stop building up wealth on debts.

This new political movement should be headed by students and engaged young people.

Hmmm… take a look around the JuLis website. Here we have a party of students who support a flat tax and are critical of government debt reduction  plans.

So have I missed something?
