The EU is coming after our corporate tax rate by stealth
The 'Apple tax case' is a strange beast indeed. Having promised to leave our corporate tax rate untouched, as a carrot to sign up to the Lisbon Treaty, it looks as if the EU is now coming after it by stealth.
If it makes foreign investors nervous, the Germans and French might get a bigger slice of the action instead.
Perhaps it's more about that at the end of the day than the €13bn.
