We will be slowly strangled here as:

The Government is under increasing pressure to agree to European Commission proposals for an EU-wide 3 per cent digital sales tax ahead of a meeting of European finance ministers in Brussels next week.

Government sources says it will resist the proposal in its current form, but there has been heavy lobbying from the commission, the French government and the Austrian presidency of the European Union to have the draft directive approved by the end of the year
.

Of course the strategic aim is to see US Corporations shift their base of Operations to the Continent and leave us high and dry

With the Irish Government pathetically getting the EU to work out how we are to get through Brexit it is only to be expected that countries like France will want a few pounds [kilograms?] in return...

Thank you very much Mr Barnier...

If the tax is EU-wide, why would it mean companies relocating from Ireland to the continent?
