Posturing politicians desperate to disguise their own failures

Sirs,

I am getting very bored seeing committee rooms full of posturing politicians trying to divert attention from their own failures.

Companies like Google, Amazon and Starbucks are behaving within the tax laws. If politicians don’t like this then it is their responsibility to make changes.

The frequent dragging of senior company figures before Parliament is achieving nothing and convincing nobody – the failure to collect decent amounts of tax is totally the fault of the politicians who define the laws.
