Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
And part of the problem for the Billionaire class is that the EU is so complex you can't just lift the phone to your bought politician to get stuff done.  Apple tried that with the Irish Government but it is unclear how far that will get them.  In the meantime the publicity isn't good and any potential interest bill is piling up although they have now, apparently, put the €13 Billion in escrow...to limit further damage. Of course Apple is just the tip of the iceberg and no one seems to know just how much dough is lying under that piece of shit - the non resident Company conduit for exiting profits tax free out of the EU.
