Another reason to not watch sky…

UK Indymedia – SPREAD THE WEALTH OF WALL STREET, BIG OIL AND TAX-EVADING FOX!

From Wikipedia:

“In 1999, The Economist reported that Newscorp Investments had made
£1.4 billion ($2.1 billion) in profits over the previous 11 years but
had paid no net corporation tax. It further reported, after an
examination of what was available of the accounts, that Newscorp would
normally have expected to pay a corporate tax of approximately $350
million. The article explained that the corporation’s complex
structure, international scope and use of offshore havens allowed News
Corporation to avoid taxation.”

If you have ever watched Fox news, you can imagine what they are saying about the American Tax Reform ideas that are part of the current election: Get ready fro the same thing from Sky, The Sun and The Times.
