Ireland’s 12.5% Corporation Tax rate and David Cameron’s call for a ‘fairer tax system’ in the world, and Ireland’s relationship with the EU are the topics for tonight’s #vinb. Plenty there to digest. The first link has both David Cameron’s speech and Enda Kenny’s reaction to our Corporation Tax regime.

A good show should be on the cards for tonight. Could even turn out to be a popcorn night. Who knows? Worth watching, I think …

Enda does Davos and shows how big our bank debt is?

I suppose the Bonox and the Malteser were unavailable for comment.

Just wondering....how much of a carbon footprint is Davos causing ?

Well, good. Do we still want it to be 12.5% in 2043? Something like the low tax should be a temporary thing to get some initial growth, rather than a permanent crutch (cf. subsidies to horse industry and farmers). I'm sure the Cayman Islanders want to keep their low tax rate as well, but it doesn't make money laundering and tax fiddles any more moral.

Look forward to Ireland being stripped of its bubble economy.

I hope Joey the Lip doesn`t mention the magic money tree again and how all his fellow workers will attain employment if the big FDI Companys pull out of Ireland because taxes are too high.

He will have his pension to fall back on.

I have a very vivid memory. In 1999 June, I was watching a coworker stub out a fag upon a butterfly on the wall of a factory I was working in.

I thought at that moment, this place is only a few multinationals away from being just another backwater or at least an average european economy.

Never in my dreams did I realise the multinational bubble would get this far.

Whats its done for us. By all stats I consider important we are in a worse place compared to the 1996-99 period.

Yes but at least when he doesnt fill out his property tax form he will be deemed to have opted for the tax to be deducted from his pay - along with the household charge.

But the poor gobsh1tes he led up the garden path may not have the 200 to pay it.
