This is a normal post I suppose they've got to find a replacement for all the people they wanted to tax 70% of their incomes leaving the country

Have an amusing video of an Amazon exec floundering in front of a Government committee.

This is a normal post Yeah saw that yesterday, unbelievably rubbish.
Basically didn't take the committee seriously and sent an ill prepared underling.

This is a normal post Radio2 yesterday
(admittedly on their weaker than weak drivetime show)

had some tax bod from some tax specialist co (was it kpmg?) arguing that poor Starbucks' had consistently made a loss in the UK and therefore paying no tax was fair. The interviewer just wasn't equipped at all to argue how the flow of money might be engineered in such a way to make this look plausable, and completely missed the point that if they make 1% profit (as he admitted "some" of the shops do), 20% of whatever the real number/amount for that should still be payable.
