Agreed.I don't know why it's taken so long for the EU to act on this. Ireland's preferential tax rate for Apple is a clear breach of EU rules. I sure hope somebody is going to get a large multi-billion dollar tax bill for this. Apple can afford it.
Frankly, the EU is a joke. The whole union should be disbanded, as companies have effectively evaded paying tens of billions of dollars of tax using Ireland as a loophole. One of the worst things about the world today is how much power large corporations have. It's not just Apple; all large companies pay far too little tax. The way in which money can be freely moved to low tax havens is a huge scam which needs to be ended forever.
What the world needs is at least one great politician who can transform business and make the world a fairer place. It's a damning indictment of our times that there is no-one in a position of power who is remotely great. Perhaps we have been spoilt by the greatness of Steve Jobs.
