Just thought I’d get this in ahead of everyone else:
Starbucks, which came under intense fire in 2012 for the low amount of tax it pays in the UK, said it shelled out £6.7 million in total taxes last year versus £8.4 million in 2015.
Turnover also fell, from £405.6 million to £379.9 million.
Will you look at that the bastards! 1.8% tax rate. Outrage!
Our task, if we should care to take it up, is to find the idiots actually making that argument…..
