    One of US president Donald’s Trump’s top economic advisers has said he expects Ireland will continue to be a “voice of reason” alongside the United States against more left-wing European governments in the coming years.

    The voice of reason huh?

    So, the EU want to prevent a disaster that the US currently has, which is that large multinationals, like Google, Amazon etc, try and play governments off each other (within a political structure like the US and EU) so that they can get away without paying tax.

    The EU has forbidden countries from offering these fucker companies from being given lower rates of tax than all the other companies and Ireland got a little angry.

    Well not Ireland, the government of Ireland that would be fucking their own people over. When you have to be protected from your own government by Germans, you know there's a problem at home.
