Sticks two fingers up to Biden.
Minister for Finance Paschal Donohoe has said that Ireland cannot be part of an international agreement on a minimum global tax rate of 15 per cent.
“What is on the table is an agreement that we cannot be part of,” he told RTÉ radio’s Morning Ireland […]
“We are committed to the negotiation to see if we can enter the agreement at some point, but I’m making the case for our 12.5 per cent. It has been a key feature of our economic policy for decades, and I’m so committed to it that I decided we couldn’t enter into the agreement.”
I have no problem with the Republic of Ireland choosing to remain a controversial offshore corporate tax haven. Brexiteers would cheers the statement of sovereignty and genuine liberals are always in favour of lower taxes, wherever they may be. I am a little amused that a gobernment so vehement in its opposition to others choosing what’s best for themselves now choosing what’s best for themselves.
