A ComRes survey about public perceptions around tax avoidance, commissioned by Christian Aid, found a third (34 per cent) of Britons say that they are currently boycotting the products or services of a company because it does not pay its fair share of tax in the UK. Almost half (45 per cent) say they are considering a boycott.
Sure, people say they're currently boycotting the products or services of a company because of tax avoidance. But are they actually boycotting them? And, if so, is it because of tax avoidance or does it happen to be a company they don't much care for anyway?
This poll is next to useless unless we can see what people are actually doing, rather than what they tell some twat with a clipboard.
