So where do you stand on state aid as a matter of principle?
Should the state be able to aid selected private businesses nor not? Would you have a different view if Lux here (or Ireland on the Apple case) if they had given a straight out subsidy, if, say, jobs were threatened?
I would have thought an a pro-state person like yourself would be on the side of more state aid rather than less.

I am wholly in favour of state aid
But it has to be accountable, transparent and openly won
This case involved none of those things
There must be level playing fields
I get to give aid to my favourites but others don’t to their.
