Google UK coughs up £130m back taxes. Is it enough?

Graham Triggs

"To put this in context, the company paid paid £20.4m in taxes in 2013 on sales of £3.8bn"

And what context is this?

Remember, corporation tax is paid on *PROFIT*, not *SALES*.

Why is it every time tax is discussed, two numbers that are completely irrelevant to each other are entered as some kind of evidence?
