Pot. Kettle. Black.
Margaret Hodge's family company Stemcor pays just 0.01pc tax on £2.1bn of business generated in the UK.
Her hypocrisy is astonishing.

Where do we begin???
How does a ground-based laser pointer shine into the cockpit of a moving plane?
The angle and accuracy required to carry out such a task would be incredible... and unlikely.
I'm starting to think that this is in place because it fecks up expensive night vision cameras on Police helicopters rather being an actual danger.
Maybe I'm missing something, can someone enlighten me on this one?
I'm still happy with my iPhone 6S Plus which works just fine.
Apple stopped being viable when they removed the headphone jack.
Yeah, yeah, I know that all mobile phones are going that way... but I'm not upgrading my pretty awesome cans and car stereo because Apple think they know what we want. They don't. Recent iOS upgrades tell me that they have absolutely NO idea what we want.
I've been with Apple since the 3GS, but I'll be moving over to Samsung or Huawei on my next upgrade. iPhone's have had their day, but in the grand scheme of things, they're overpriced and 2 years behind everyone else.
Apart from the notch on the iPhone X.
That was cutting edge.
I'll get me coat.
Irrespective of what people "think" BitCoin either is, or isn't. Exactly how are they going to levy a tax against a cryptocurrency? Sure, you can apply the tax if you've purchased it from an Israel-based exchange. Considering you can buy it anonymously pretty much anywhere in the world, they would actually have to prove you have it first. I wasn't aware that Mossad could track a BitCoin purchase back to a citizens wallet, but you learn something new every day.
Sounds like a nice little earner for someone.
Although applying such a verification system to the world wide web of pr0n is questionable.
Are our spymasters going to block every single pr0n site who don't sign up?
Even though the laws and legislation of our tiny island probably won't apply in the sites country of origin?
Am I going to have to get a VPN to access my favorite Brazilian Midget Nun Frenzy grumble vids?
They're no bother at all to replace. Seriously. Upgraded the piss poor performing battery in my iPhone 6S Plus to a 4880mAh Japanese manufactured replacement and it now lasts all day on a single charge with heavy use.
The only difficulty was the three industrial strength adhesive strips all snapping off in mid-pull which required a heat bag and plastic card to eventually almost bend itself in half causing heart palpitations and fear of involuntary fire and potential explosion.
Downside is I can't get through the car barrier at work because I used my employee building entry card to prise it out and snapped it in two.
On the plus side, I can look at more cat pictures than I ever could before.
Because they're widely considered as an accurate news source.
Is it the Johnny Foreigner sounding name of the news outlet that you object to? I understand that a lot of people have issues with anything that sounds remotely Middle Eastern and involves brown people. Let me assure that such fears are completely unfounded.
You must be thinking of the Daily Mail or Sun.
You didn't back up your device before applying a major update?
Oh, boo hoo hoo.
You must be so lost without all the data you acquired since you last found the motivation to get up off your arse and sync it with your box with lights.
Probably because it takes up a whole three minutes of your valuable time and could really have been done while you were watching cat videos instead of just leaping in there.
What a personal disaster.
Ray. The permanently sarcastic man.

Good! I have an iPhone want list. Y'know, the REALLY simple stuff that most Smartphones can do by default without the need for Jailbreaking.
1 - Ability to change the voicemail number.
2 - Carrier customization or at least update to include GiffGaff and other services that operate on the back of another network.
3 - Saving animated GIFs to the photo roll - With the animation intact!!!
4 - Change the default browser from Safari to ANYTHING!
5 - Flash. Get over yourselves and bloody include it.
Now GET BACK TO WORK!!!
Dunno why so many peeps dismiss Disney. They've done a stirling job on the Marvel franchise since they took over and the news that characters from the new animated series Star Wars: Rebels will be tying in with Episode VII just made me nerdgasm as much as Season 6 of Clone Wars.
Yeah, it's for kids and I'm a big old 45 year old one.
Apples latest product: THE iSOMETHING
A flat square (or square-like) device with rounded corners and no definable purpose.
The iSomething may or may not contain something and will almost definitely get you sued if you try to create a similar box with something in it that infringes on our 'intellectual' property.
There are already people queuing up outside Apple stored to get one.
