Politicians to blame on tax

Published 24/05/2013

I AM getting bored watching posturing politicians trying to divert attention from their own failures.

Companies such as Google, Amazon and Starbucks are behaving within the tax laws. If politicians don't like this, then it is their responsibility to make changes.

Dragging senior company figures before parliament is convincing nobody. Failure to collect decent amounts of tax is the fault of politicians who define the laws.
