A bunch of crats in Brussels have decreed Apple will pay twenty billion euro as penalty and restitution for years of tax evasion.
Not 19.000000001 billion, a nice juicy twenty
No calculation of Apple's costs in its part in the massive turnaround of an economy once in the ballpark with the perenniel life supported Greeks, just a punitive figure made up to fit the "bastards are rich" meme that has media party 'stating as fact' The Irish are surprised at the extent of Apple's evasion.
A bunch of enlightened Irish politicians got off their ample arses and changed their nations economic direction, now mainly in a concerted reach for lost power and embarrassment that the bog dwellers could achieve infinitly beyond what the moribund crats deliver for Greece et al, Apple is a targetted victim.
Meanwhile in another unforseen outcome of the UK act "of madness" Spain, once competing with the feta and olive masters for bottom rung status, are enjoying an extrordinary surge in tourism.
Gee they will be next for the hand brake treatment from the "coke bottle adorned" crats.
