They're all at it now. Paschal Donohoe was told our tax system was a 'joke' in Davos

THere is absolutely no such thing as European Solidarity when it's contrary to the interests of The Franco-Germanic axis!

Indeed taxes are for the little people in The Leprauchain Economy and Holland also!

A Neder MEP, Paul Tang, has accussed Ireland of tax piracy given our abilities to lure FDI!
In fairness he did say The Neders were dabbling a bit as well!

Others may be indulging in similar dubious practices as the Irish, notably Luxembourg, but that does not make it right. Our cute hoor tax policies will be closed down soon. We should have an economic strategy that recognises that and prepare for the inevitable. We should have been doing it for years past.

Juncker ran Luxembourg as a veritable tax haven.

Just laugh in their face - our economy was built on a low corp tax ethos to attract jobs.

I agree, we should be looking at developing indigenous industries and aiming to create Irish world leading organizations! @ the moment there is plan A and Plan A!

Its going to be very difficult to resist pressure on tax harmonisation and CCCTB after Britain leaves. We may have a veto but the ECJ and Commission are instead using state aid rules to get around it.

Go on, enlighten us with what that strategy needs to be?

Jaysus, this Irish trait of being sensitive to criticism and being delighted with praise and attention, from abroad, is cringe-worthy and embarrassing. Fawning servile BS is so last century surely.

It's not necessarily criticism these people are sensitive of. It's the truth that bothers them.

Aargh.... shiver me timbers.

Ireland is a tax pirate. Our economic model is built on piracy folks. And we (as taxpayers) spend an annual princely sum sailing those choppy waters too.
