As we have seen from Luxembourg, Italy, Holland, and Ireland, preferential tax arrangements can be and are often defined by the Competition Commissioner as illegal-state-aid. Subsidies by another name.

That is their definition and their problem The "competition" they worry about is not the competition that benefits the consumer, they just don't want others to give tax breaks, but this is a different discussion for another time. With regards to Ireland, they are not getting any moneys from the state hence they are not on "our tab".
