Facebook, Google, Apple, Amazon, and Starbucks flout tax on revenues generated in Britain. I guess it's logical that the former 'Russia Today' draws attention to these evil American companies and the UK's "disingenuous and hypocritical" PM.

" Tax avoidance generates poor publicity for their firms" - yes, maybe, but while a few more enlightened people may well boycott these sick, greedy mega-corporations there are millions more who don't care (or, incredibly, are simply unaware of what is going on). For me, this is the tragedy.
