    Middle-Class Matter to feel Indignant About in 2012

    There was MUCH to feel indignant about in 2012. Dinner parties rattled with outrage over the revelations of BBC bosses’ salaries and golden handshakes, deep concernabout car drivers’ cavalier attitude to cyclists, and angry panic at the levels of sugar that have been revealed to be in our foods these days. But there is one matter that has enflamed our indignation muscles more than any other, and that’s the utterly appalling UK tax affairs of some of the biggest brands in the world. So enraged are we all about Starbucks, Amazon, Apple and co., that many of us are heading into 2013 with a resolution never to buy from these brands ever again. *Slams hand on dinner table*

    Though obviously being MC, that boycott started after Christmas: Amazon (so cheap and easy to buy from); Apple (the kids wanted an iPad) and Starbucks (Red cups are a part of Christmas for many).
