Starbucks has contributed only £8.6 million of corporation tax over 14 years whilst earning a profit of £14 billion. The wonderful staff at Starbucks manage to pay their tax, why can’t the company they work for do the same?
I will herein replace my 2 daily coffees from Starbucks for either a Costa or Nero.
I don’t believe a tax change will cause any effective change in a companies tax avoidance, if Dispatches review of MP’s tax avoidance is anything to go by that reports MP’s have merely adapted their means of benefiting from their status.
Instead I will not visit Starbucks until they have improved their tax status. This is one instance where the people have more power then the government, a bottom-up boycott of companies that are morally reprehensible is the most effective means of creating real change.

This has led to an increase of babies with 'flat head syndrome' or an abnormally shaped head. So, during supervised play time, it will be helpful for your baby's development if they spend time on their tummy.
