Nothing about what apple did or didn't pay is relevant: they had a contract with a sovereign nation and that nation should be held to honor it.

As for EU infrastructure? Proper taxes? Not even the least bit relevant. At least not until they give Apple and Microsoft seats in the Brussels gathering of idiots.

This comes down to a very simple and basic concept: do you trust in a legal agreement signed in the EU or not. Apparently, and repeatedly, we know the answer is "NOT".
