  1. William Hague was …
    William Hague was on the News today talking about how much of the UK populace are seriously concerned about our dealings with the EU.
    Seems UKIP have got the message across to the people and they’re finally seeing what a sham it all is. Nigel has captured their attention, on no small part, by his use of language when engaging the EU Muppets and shown it on videos uploaded here on YouTube.
    Vote UKIP. End the EU strangle-hold.

    160 Million EUROS… NOT Pounds.
    Americans can’t read for shit.

  3. Big companies do …
    Big companies do own land that there business is on. Teaming and laying technique.

  4. 1. Nigel Farage is …
    1. Nigel Farage is not in parliament in the UK. He’s (ironically) a Member of the European Parliament (MEP). 2. Starbucks’ tax avoidance strategy in the UK is achieved by making it look as though they are “not making a profit”. If that’s not disingenuous, I don’t know what is. 3. Starbucks coffee SUCKS!

  5. I’m getting fed up …
    I’m getting fed up with these companies taking the piss, and the government are still not doing anything about it. Yet another company for me to boycot.

    i hate that news reporter. He is very annoying to listen too

  8. Starbuck’s tax …
    Starbuck’s tax figures will obviously include VAT which is collected here, at point of sale. Their use of the figures they supply is trickery.

  9. It has nothing to …
    It has nothing to do with that. The NYSE, for stupid reasons I won’t get into here, is the only major stock exchange in the world which is still based on how loudly you shout.

  10. I think you mean …
    I think you mean they would get that from their net revenue, before taxes are extracted to leave their profit.

  11. if those are the …
    if those are the prices customers are paying now with the tax-dodging, just imagine what the prices will be if you get rid of the tax-dodging. not gonna be pretty, but it will be beautiful to see the liberals destroy their favorite coffee company. 

  12. Why do Americans …
    Why do Americans have to shout every time they’re on the telly?

  13. And here we have …
    And here we have another reason why being in the EU is not beneficial for the UK. Starbucks certainly don’t pass on these tax dodging measures to the customer because their prices are a joke.

    brussels ? belgium is a dump. for example; they haven’t made any road repairs since the end of ww2

    companies run lean, but in order ot pay tax they have to charge more , which means the customers of starbucks will be charged more. the whole corporations not paying tax is a joke to fool the dumbocratic voters. corporations are merely tax collectors

  16. Quote from Monty …
    Quote from Monty Python, The Meaning of Life – Live Organ Transplants; “Don’t you think it’s all for the good of the country?” A lot of people believe a lot of things all for the good of unity, peace, and prosperity in our time. Nigel’s trying to wake people up to the very real danger of giving up national parliamentary democracies for an EC bureaucratocracy. The Russian revolution morphed into Marxist-Leninist bolshevism which morphed into Stalinism. The EC keeps morphing, not in a good way.

  17. if starbucks has ot …
    if starbucks has ot pay more tax then where do they get the money for that?? so the customers of starbucks must pay more for coffee, this disadvantages smaller coffee chains who are unable to avoid those taxes

  18. Right people of …
    Right people of Britain please vote Ukip at all times. Labour, Lib dems and Conservatives are all liars simple as wake up and smell the coffee (not starbucks coffee) and vote for a decent party for once or else we are all quite royally fucked!!!!!!!!
