More Tax-Avoidance - Now I Can't Eat Cadburys Chocolate ...

If you buy a Cadburys chocolate bar in the UK, the tax on the profits will go to the Swiss Government.

Kraft, the new American owners of Cadbury's chocolate are working on a plan to shift major parts of the 186-year-old British business to Switzerland in a move likely to deprive the UK exchequer of millions of pounds of tax.

So chocolate-loving Brits are paying money to the US and Switzerland, and the British Exchequer gets to see very little of it.

They too, are added to the steadily growing Boycott List.
