    Low taxation are not subsidies and the EU has no power as yet to enforce a minimum tax rate at a pan-European schedule.
    Low taxation can be a subsidy if enforced in a way which gives peculiar benefits to certain individuals and/or corporations.

    Only in the EU (you still have places like the Caymans) and also you'd be crippling city states like Monaco.
    Great, Monaco should be crippled. I'd sooner ban Monaco residents from the UK (and owning, or being on the board of companies which trade in the UK) than continue with the currently unsustainable state of affairs. We really do need a single international tax union though.

    The £12bn that Apple owe Ireland would be enough to plug our NHS gap and is more than the health bill for Ireland. Crazy that the Irish government is appealing that.

    "Forget all the conflicting and unreliable monthly data and surveys, and focus on the two clear impacts that the Brexit vote has already had. The first is a large depreciation in sterling, which makes almost everyone poorer. [1] The second is a cut in interest rates plus a reactivation of unconventional monetary expansion. To imply that these events strengthen the Leave case is just completely and utterly bizarre. It is just another version of the ‘they predicted Armageddon’ trick which I complained about here. Any objective referee would judge the score so far to be

    ...

    Michael Gove was widely derided for saying the UK has had enough of experts. But using the label ‘Project Fear’ is exactly the same."

    I think that those who voted Leave should pay as they have made people such as myself worse off. My visits abroad will cost more.

    Anyone involved in education in the early part of this decade had enough of Michael Gove.*

    At this point it's more about Brexit vs Remain and seeing the catastrophic apocalyptic visions unravel allows us to take the high ground even if the situation is not the best.

    In theory, yes. In practice, there's a finite amount of space at each uni for practical reasons from accommodation availability to the size of lecture halls and other facilities, and if more international students are given places at over-subscribed unis that means fewer places for British students.

    The worst thing is, it's so easy to form his point into a much more coherent policy.

    "Despite equality under the law, women still face barriers to advancement at work, especially where they are the primary carers of young children. Social events after work hours areach a part of this problem: they present an ideal opportunity for networking and demonstrating personal qualities, but are often held at times and places which make it impossible to attend with children. Therefore, I will be investigating whether we can encourage venues for these events to relax rules on the presence of children where they are adequately supervised by a responsible adult - as well as investing as already announced in subsided childcare services to ensure parents have the room to enjoy their own lives while they work so hard to further the future of their children".

    But no. What do we get? Ban after work drinks. Ffs.
