Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

You know that Ireland is the one back-tracking on clawing back Apple's back taxes, don't you? The EU is seeing it as a due payment to Ireland to cover its costs such as health and welfare but Ireland just wants to keep Apple happy, and located in Ireland.

You have not read the treaty have you

Take a look at "Communication from the Commission on the application, from 1 August 2013, of State aid rules to support measures in favour of banks in the context of the financial crisis (‘Banking Communication’)"

State Aid cases can carry financial penalty, and it isn't there for the hell of it. Its intention is to prevent EU countries from competing with each other, by limiting their range of actions. Not that I am a fan of government intervention in business, but just another example of how Brexit unties the UK's hands. Sovereignty, its called.
