In praise of tax

Posted on

An editorial in London's only evening newspaper, the London Evening Standard, says today:

In praise of tax

Paying tax is a good way for individuals and companies to contribute to the society in which they operate. So why is Google choosing to base itself in low tax Ireland rather than in the UK, where it has far more workers? We should be told.

Hard to argue with that.

And a very welcome sign of the times that such comment is now becoming commonplace.
