Who buys stuff through amazon? There have been many stories about the working conditions and pressures their workers are under as well as their tax dodging activities. Here's another story from the inside: The Amazon worker: paid £18,000 to shift 250 items an hour

There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

I have as well. I don't buy books from them - I try to use hive.co.uk whenever possible, but have occasionally used other sellers using amazon.

I use Amazon and many local stores and I doubt if there is a single business from the local corner shop to my friendly gardener or my barber up the road including the Co-op store or our neighbourly newsagent who lives a perfect life anymore than I do.
