hold the door open while the multinationals leave

Where? There are only 2 countries with slightly lower tax rates in the Eu than Ireland - Bulgaria and Romania (10% vs Irish 12.5%).

Sure, Apple and Google may stop routing his Australian sales via Ireland + Singapore (as they do now), but there is no place they can run as far as their Eu income is concerned and the commission is 100% within their rights to enforce that it is taxed.
