If Britain lowered tax to attract Apple it would have to apply the same tax rates to Rolls-Royce, HSBC, ICI, Shell, etc etc

All of whom already engage in some level of tax planning. Don't assume that because the rate payable is reduced that the amount garnered would also fall. All economic evidence points to the contrary.
