But I don't like to force my taste in coffee upon everyone else in the world, so why would I stop anyone else from going there? Let market forces decide. This is coffee we are talking about, not hospitals. While I don't like the fact that Starbucks avoided taxes, I also don't like people who try to force their way of life onto others.
And that freedom extends to being able to tell a tax evading business to clear off too. Who has stopped anyone going to Starbucks? Who is forcing their taste in coffee on anyone? No one is standing outside the door blocking people going in and forcing them to go somewhere else.

The redevelopment of St Peter's Square is nearing completion.

Even on a miserable Winter's Mancunian Day, it look's good.

Roll on the Summer when when it's warm, clear, sunny, dry, all the plants and trees are in full bloom, and the square has been finished.
