Snow White was scuppered by a poisoned apple, but yesterday told the Government to take the forbidden fruit from the €13bn Apple tax ruling.

  • Go To

An open letter, signed by 10,000 people, was delivered at 10am to Leinster House before the Cabinet met to decide on whether to appeal the ruling.

The letter was delivered by a member of the Uplift campaign group dressed as Snow White.

The letter read: "Dear Minister Noonan... You claim you do not have enough money in the public exchequer to ensure quality healthcare for everyone; to properly resource our schools and universities; to ensure every worker has a living wage, to end homelessness. Apple's tax bill would go a long way to solving these problems."
