& how much is the family worth??

The Jobs family gave each of the members of the shipbuilding staff an elegant thank-you note, along with a token gift of their appreciation — an iPod Shuffle with the name of the ship inscribed on the back.

Analysis by the Guardian found that Google, Amazon, Starbucks and Facebook have paid just £30m in tax over the past four years despite generating more than £3.1bn in sales.

To summarise, then, all you Champagne socialists who have bought your sweat-shop made Apple iphones or Apple ipads from Amazon and are at this very moment sitting in Starbucks with Mocha Light Frappuccino® Blended Beverage and Light Blueberry Muffin, perusing the Guardian when you should be preparing your OU Sociology assignment ( that you have left in your Toyota Prius by mistake - oh there it is under your copy of Lord Stansgate's autobiography ) , doing your Gmails whilst on Facebook are really just tax dodgers!!! :P :) :D :lol:

You're definitely not talking to me then;

I prefer a pint of real ale to champagne, have never owned an 'i' anything, buy my books from a local bookshop, have only ever used Starbucks when there is absolutely no alternative and anyway never drink coffee (foul stuff), I drink Earl Grey tea old boy. GMail, what's that? Ah, Facebook, guilty as charged m'lord. :rolleyes:

yup. I didn't think that through!

Just found this though....this is you, isn't it!! :lol: :lol:

Guardian readers are affluent, young urban consumers with a keen sense of adventure when it comes to trying new products and experiences. They have varied interests and their high disposable incomes give them the means to keep up with their sports, hobbies and travel. Being difficult to reach..Guardian readers are generally wealthy...hey are six times more likely than the average adult to play rugby on a regular basis..

Interesting, though, to see what how the Guardian sells itself to advertisers. I'll try and find the same stuff from The Telegraph. etc/ Will that describe me? ( :o )

Mail readers are terrified, enraged suburban consumers with a marked lack of adventure when it comes to meeting people with dark skin or foreign accents. They have varied interests (house prices and immigration) and their income gives them the means to keep up their stream of outraged letters to the newpaper about the Trostskyist paedophiles who run the BBC.

Express readers are the masters of contradiction.
  • They feel that world would be a better place if the socialists hadn't given the Empire away, but want as little to do with foreigners as possible.
  • Staunchly royalist, they hate the royal family for murdering Princess Diana, a woman they seem to feel is their own private property.
  • Bristling at real or perceived slights from overseas, they recommend giving Johnny Foreigner a damn good hiding, but bewail the cost to the taxpayer of military action overseas.
The also experience tumescence when bringing back hanging or even the birch is mentioned.
