My Starbucks boycott (& yours?) worked - they lost £14 million last year - thank you.

I started to boycott Starbucks Coffee a long time ago because of their failure to pay any income tax into the UK economy having made multi million ££ here.

I believe it is a social justice issue.
I firstly blame the UK government for not having policies in place which allow these international companies to redirect 'profit' to Switzerland etc - and avoid paying their dues.

They lost £14m in profits as a result of many people seeing through their mega modern image, and lousy coffee, and refused to stop there - even if inconvenient
because of their ever present coffee shops here and around the world.

People power still works and I thank anyone who uses their individual vote by acting justly with the faith that others will also.
