Facebook's UK wing paid just £4k in corporation tax last year

Re: Companies don't pay tax

Actually, yes, maybe in some cases. As a partner in a small business we factor salary + employers NI into how much we *actually* pay staff. If NI went down, we'd pay our staff the equivalent difference. We're nice that way.

Don't touch me up there! Photoshop creator appeals for 'ethical' use

DarrenJ

Re: that's one way of looking at it, here's another

Its pretty much a default entry level requirement - don't really understand why this is down voted. Sorry but the graphic design and photography world doesn't really rate Gimp or Paint.Net I'm afraid. Want to work in a digital creative industry? Well, get good at using Photoshop. I've yet to see a viable alternative.

Well now its its happened once so I'd imagine airlines are already reviewing their security procedures. Wonder how long it will be before all smartphones have to be placed into a fireproof plastic bag and checked through airport security separately, along with all those bottles of non-exploding shampoo and toothpaste?

Next week: all people banned from passenger flights due to spontaneous-combustion concerns.
