,,,,,,, Britain told them to stick their dreams of a new wold order?
The EU has issued a 'ruling' demanding Apple hand over $19 billion dollars to the Irish gummint.
But get this.
There has been no tax evasion or any other illegal activity on the part of Apple.
Ireland set about attracting big business (along with all it's benefits such as employment, expenditure, payment of 23% VAT on all goods and services, etc) by adopting a relatively low rate of corporate income tax, namely 12.5%.
Apple set up business there and prospered as a result, as did Ireland.
However the socialists who run the EU are having none of that and are calling it 'tax evasion' because apparently Ireland has broken EU rules by offering an attractive rate of tax.
Of course this ridiculous 'ruling' by a dying organisation is being appealed by Apple and by Ireland.
Adolf has an answer for them though.
Apple should mount a counter claim for all the wages, VAT and other transactions made in Ireland during the time it has been in business there. By the time the whole thing is settled the EU will be part of the Islamic State so it won't matter anymore.
