The hypocrisy of Cameron…

McDonald’s to create 2,500 UK jobs, says the Guardian, before going on to quote David Cameron as saying:-

“I am delighted to welcome McDonald’s announcement of new jobs.

“McDonald’s has a great record in investing in the UK and providing excellent training, apprenticeships and opportunities for its staff.”

Ironically, and, I would like to hope, not entirely accidentally, below that article is a link to a July 13 2009 page, which says:-

McDonald’s to move European head office to Switzerland. US fast-food chain is latest company to quit the UK for a more favourable tax regime overseas.

How’s that for investment, Cameron, you hypocritical prick?
