Amazon and the Tax Man

It’s great to see that the latest Amazon ad for the new Kindle Paperwhite is LGBT inclusive. Now all Amazon has to do is pay fair taxes in the countries in which it trades (oh, and not keep me waiting until I reach a threshold of sales from before sending me a cheque in dollars that I have to pay a fat fee to cash). After all, someone has to pay for the roads used by their delivery vans and the health and education of their employees. I could go on but you get my drift.
