Some would have it the we are all to blame for the demise of many shops in our high streets, but when we look at the price differential obtained online who can resist?
But how can these big corporations such as Amazon do it ?
Here's how

Not entirely sure what 'the EU' has to do with this as opposed to, as the article says, certain individual states whom benefit from the current arrangement.
Your title would thus seem little more than clickbait, and incorrect at that.

You can't blame the EU for the members states choosing greed. The EU cannot and should not force through laws that members vote against.

Did you bother to read your own article? Were you able to understand it?
The proposal was brought by the EU and vetoes by Ireland and Sweden for different reasons i.e it was the EU that wanted the transparency.
In any event we are to blame because we shop online and give them our custom, which leads to the direct reduction in the high street profitability.

Because they don't have to pay for thousands of brick and mortar buildings from which to sell.

It's not rocket science.

You're looking for a conspiracy theory because the answer is too simple.

The title to this thread is dumb and inaccurate.
