Tax Dodging Olympics

Theres a sport you probably wont have heard of. Its not exactly a sport but it sure is a form if competition, whi an pay the least tax and make the most dosh. And we are the saps that pay the price.

Below is the campaign from 38 degrees.

"The UK's winning Olympic bid included huge tax breaks for sponsors. As a result, massive multi-nationals like Coca-Cola, McDonald's and Adidas stand to make a tax-free fortune. Experts think the UK could be losing tens of millions.

As sponsors, these companies will be banking on loads of positive media exposure. Let’s use that to our advantage, turn the tables, and roll out a massive petition demanding they pay their fair share. If the petition is big enough, and attracts enough media attention, it could be the first step in scaring these image-conscious companies into refusing their gold-plated tax break.

Can you add your name to the petition to the heads of these big companies demanding they turn down their Olympic tax dodge?

Just for the record I hardly ever drink Coke, never want to pay for the Adidas badging and wouldn't eat MuckDonalds if they paid me!
