Google UK coughs up £130m back taxes. Is it enough?

That's pocket change compared to the €17Bn the Irish government is actively fighting to NOT get paid from apple!

To put that in context, 1 company has possibly avoided paying 20% of the bailout, 25% of the 2016 budget, and equal to the annual tax take to year end May 2015!

They have promised that if apple is ordered to pay this money, they will take the matter to the European courts to argue that they shouldnt' get it!
