Tim Cook: EU lied about Apple taxes. Watch out Ireland, this is a coup!

Can someone just fill in the blanks for me?

I think I have it right, but just for clarification;

Apple channels all it's profits through its Irish "business" and pays naff all for doing so.

The 400 million he claims is legit 12.5% corp tax in Ireland, but the 13 billion is profits made across Europe that IF tax laws were a little more strict, would be paid to the countries where they were made but because of legal loopholes, need to be paid to Ireland instead.

So assuming that's right, what have they been paying British tax payers in terms of corp tax? If Facebook paid less than I did in 2014, wtf did Apple pay?
