U.K. Has Its Own Elizabeth Warren, But She Yells At Google Instead Of Ben Bernanke (Video)

News

We here at Wonkette have a big melty spot (OUR HEART, PERVS) for ladies what yell at people. We are absolutely sure this has nothing to do with our upbringing, which as we recall was filled with gentle murmurings, hair ribbons, and warm pots of choc-o-late by the fire.


There is Elizabeth Warren, first and always. There was Glenda Jackson thundering in the voice of God over the mouldering corpse of Margaret Thatcher. There was Aussie "sheila" prime minister Tilda Swinton LITERALLY KILLING SEXISTS DEAD WITH HER HARANGUE that was so fucking beautiful and great and like four hours long and captivating from start to finish, and you should probably give yourself some Nice Time and go watch it again. Oh, and now there is another lady, a British-Lande "MP," and like Warren she pitches her voice low and ladylike so the icepick can go cleaner right into the ear. Let us watch as she murders Google for being "evil."

First questions first: what is Dan Savage doing as Google’s vice president for sales and operations in northern and central Europe?

Second questions second: huh?

The company reported nearly $4.1 billion in sales in the U.K. in 2011, according to Google’s annual report. Its U.K. subsidiary reported paying taxes of 6 million pounds.

As reported by Bloomberg in December, Google avoided about $2 billion in worldwide income taxes in 2011 by shifting $9.8 billion in revenues into a Bermuda shell company, almost double the total from three years before, filings show.

Oh, and according to Hodge, a "steady stream" of whistleblowers has maintained that Google is avoiding paying tax by saying sales shit was taking place in Ireland (which apparently is not part of the UK? What the hell, UK?) instead of the UK, EVEN THOUGH IT WAS NOT.

The DOJ will find the whistleblowers any second. You're welcome, Google.

Poor People Are Mad As Hell, And They're Not Going to Take It Anymore.

The Poor People's Campaign marched on Washington, and we were there!

Culture Wars
by Dominic Gwinn

Yesterday the new Poor People's Campaign, led by Rev. William Barber and Rev. Dr. Liz Theoharis, concluded 40 days of protest and civil disobedience with a rally on the National Mall. Building off of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr's original Poor People's Campaign 50 years ago, the new campaign is aimed at uniting labor leaders with activists to build a coalition of all marginalized people

The police have clearly failed to stop the scourge of black kids selling water to thirsty people, so your average law-abiding, permit-respecting white lady has no choice but to take matters into her own (did we mention they were white?) hands. You might call her a busybody gone power mad or a simple tool of racist micoaggression, but we just call her "Permit Patty."
