Working class to begin Ritz boycott

As the Ritz was revealed to have paid no corporation tax for fifteen years, working class people across the country have said they won’t be using the hotel in future.

The news has left many basic tax rate payers angry that another corporate giant is avoiding paying its fair share of tax in a time of austerity, and they have reacted in the only way they know how.

Basic tax rate payer Simon Williams told us, “We’ve seen how powerful the Starbucks boycott was, and we expect this to have the same effect.”

“I imagine that any day now the Ritz will be announcing that they’re voluntarily paying some corporation tax over the next two years.”
