I am half joking, OK, but we do put up with all those huge American companies that earn 100s of millions of pounds and then arrange to pay 99% of their tax in Ireland by having "Intellectual Property" charges to an Irish parent.

Anyway back to the topic - what chance do you think that this Y-plane will ever see service? About a 1% chance??

How did those US companies end up in Ireland? Shall we discuss the numbers of Irish workers employed at said establishments?

If they invaded Ireland, it was done with a willing population.
