Re: What I don't get...

The free market is fundamentally broken. It was the primary cause of the Brexit vote; freedom of movement is a nice idea but in practice it doesn't get used how it was intended and despite what the Brexiteers think, the big losers are those countries, towns and villages who suffered the exodus of skills.

The same goes for this. The rules should have been more tightly set up for this kind of thing to not happen in the first place. The sale of products of services within a country should be taxed in that country. All it's served to do is make rich people richer, at the expense of everyone else. Naturally, everyone else is mightily pissed off. Unfortunately there wasn't an option for "fix this bloody mess" on the ballot paper.
