See my previous post. The issue is not that Amazon are avoiding tax, it is that they are avoiding a lot more tax than other comparable companies.

Exploiting loop-holes to avoid tax is not illegal as it observes the letter of the law. But it ignores the spirit of the law, and in this case, on a 2 billion dollar scale. Surely that is wrong.
