European nations told to sort out 'digital tax' on tech giants by end of year

Hmmm

So the commission plans to drop a tax plan to tax users data. I like this. The EU eventually take a hit 'em in the pocket attitude to American frontier technology companies taking the piss. Sometimes its all they understand.

Can't help but think the lobbyists on this one are missing a trick though. Surely if it is taxed then any GDPR regulation becomes subject to the needs of the exchequer. Short term upheaval, long term influence for the Company. Look at banking in Britain, particuarly the city of London. I thought they would have learned that by now.

Maybe IT IS all just a show for the cameras. (it's 2am)
