    Ireland’s 12.5% Corporation Tax rate and David Cameron’s call for a ‘fairer tax system’ in the world, and Ireland’s relationship with the EU are the topics for tonight’s #vinb. Plenty there to digest. The first link has both David Cameron’s speech and Enda Kenny’s reaction to our Corporation Tax regime.

    A good show should be on the cards for tonight. Could even turn out to be a popcorn night. Who knows? Worth watching, I think …

    Enda does Davos and shows how big our bank debt is?

    I suppose the Bonox and the Malteser were unavailable for comment.

    Just wondering....how much of a carbon footprint is Davos causing ?
    Coveney's ambition is the be Ireland's next EU Commissar and Ireland will pay a price as he builds his CV to position himself sufficiently loyal to the nEU empire.

    Well, good. Do we still want it to be 12.5% in 2043? Something like the low tax should be a temporary thing to get some initial growth, rather than a permanent crutch (cf. subsidies to horse industry and farmers). I'm sure the Cayman Islanders want to keep their low tax rate as well, but it doesn't make money laundering and tax fiddles any more moral.

    Look forward to Ireland being stripped of its bubble economy.
