Sunday Independent Stupid Statement of the Week September 4, 2016Posted by Garibaldy in Sunday Independent Stupid Statement of the Week.

You have to admire the audacity of this by Dan O’Brien when writing about Apple.
This column will focus on just two issues: the economic consequences for Ireland; and whether last week’s decision is part of a trend in which EU institutions are becoming less even-handed in their treatment of small countries compared with more powerful countries.

At one stage in its history, Fianna Fail would have jumped at the chance to challenge the government to ‘take the money’, an option some seem to think is open to us.
