In the news today, (a big country club hat tip to Ms Predator), Tesco under fire for 'dodging' tax by basing it's online CD/DVD business in, shock horror, Guernsey.
The Graudian leads the patriotic attack on Tesco whilst pretty much ignoring the scores of other online retailers who do business in the same way. Some of the comments are straight out of 'The Big Ladybird Book of Socialism'. However, in the interest of balance, my favourite comment is,
God forbid that greedy, wasteful troll in Downing Street doesn't get to dip his beak in absolutely every transaction in the fucking world.
How much more does he need to piss up the wall? We should pay more on DVD so he can sign another PFI contract or pay more benefits to immigrants?
Anyway, thanks very much for another lesson in doing our duty to the state. Now please fuck off and die.
update - In other news, Downing Street announce 'Ash Tax'...
