Actually he is completely right in his statement! (see link below) the European Parliament and European Commission should already introduce a bill to ensure all member states, start taxing such #software, routines and protocols intended to reduce human presence at the work place! All members at once to avoid #taxhavens, as with the #Amazon #Apple case within EU.

Recent financial scandals and whistleblowers have revealed the extent of the fraud led by multinational companies and wealthy individuals in order to avoid contributing to our societies. We argue in favour of much more wealth redistribution, legal sanctions to be put in place internationally against companies using these practices, and we encourage the European commission to keep chasing the big corporations which use loopholes in European legislation to avoid taxation. We call for the immediate implementation of the Financial Transaction Tax and for the establishment of common standards regarding taxes on corporate benefits.
European countries should cooperate so as to avoid tax competition and establish high taxation standards. Tax havens for big companies should no longer exist in the EU and no cooperation shall be entertained between the EU and tax heavens. An increase in transparency and taxation of profits in the countries where they are made will contribute to a more just Europe. Finally, a minor EU tax for companies acting within the single market, could be established, and create the basis for a European fiscal revenue.
