(Not satire – it’s Carnival Cruises!)

Carnival Cruises – Death But No Taxes!

.

Boy – if any company deserves a boycott it’s surely this one.

This company avoids taxes despite making billions in profits, regularly covers up the sexual abuse and even the deaths of its customers, pollutes the environment, exploits its workforce and deliberately leaves people to die an agonising death.

I’m talking about Carnival Cruises.

Take a look at these headlines which tell you more or less everything you need to know about one of the worst companies in the world – Carnival. Click on the links and read the full articles too if you can be bothered:

Do you think it’s anything to do with the fact that the Life President of P&O Cruises (owners guess who?) is Tory Peer Jeffrey Sterling, Baron Sterling of Plaistow, who was once known as Margaret Thatcher’s favourite businessman?
