The problem, however, is that it may run afoul of European law by discriminating between national and European registered companies. It will depend heavily on the exact wording and application of the law whether the EU will allow it.
The loophole should be closed on EU level, but /that/ is a hard thing to do with all the lobbying going on. Maybe it is time that the tax-systems get better harmonised between EU countries and sanity can be implemented (I know, utopian thoughts, but still).

But the start of a very productive work-day is upon us. The shutdown of facebook may recoup some of the lost economics from the government impasse.

Also, it reminds me of the final scene in Surrogates, where all people suddenly go outside to see the world again. It is a nice idea, though. One is allowed to dream of a better future.

You at the other side of the pond have generated a farce beyond fantasy. Create secret court, abuse powers, secret court says "non", ignore, expand and repeat.
