Gazette column: Giving has to mean understanding, even if you disagree with Starbucks

It’s “Thursday Thoughts” where I post my weekly Gazette newspaper column to my blog so you can have a read…

This week my column for the Gloucestershire Gazette is about a village shop in Almondsbury who have to pay capital tax and are not happy about it becuase Starbucks don’t pay. I say how if you’re going to give, you need to understand first.

 To read it, simply click to my Column page.

What do you think? Should social enterprises pay tax? Or should tax be  left to the big corporations like Starbucks? Let me know.
