So - who's idea in the Irish Government was it to make this deal?
Why did they make it? Ireland clearly wasn't thinking about the rest of the EU so I'd suspect there was something in it for them.

Perhaps, instead of adding up how much various places didn't get - add up how much they did get. Perhaps the answer lies there.

Did Apple break any laws or was it Ireland - or perhaps greedy folk on the other side of the channel.
