Actually, it was Ireland broke EU law by offering a one-off deal to Apple, that counts as State aid

If you truly believe Apple had no part in this negotiation, you're naive to put it mildly. Why else do you think they channel all EU income through Ireland? Add to that the fact that Apple also keep their money out of the US to avoid US taxes, and a global picture starts to emerge.

We really do need to tighten the screws on large multinationals undertaking enormous tax evasion (in this case) and avoidance. Because it's us consumers who have to cover for them in increased personal taxation.
