“Wake up and smell the … !”

I see that Starbucks have come in for some stick recently for not paying UK taxes, and although they have offered to pay a ‘token amount’( “Too little, too latte”, as one protester’s poster read), they are now losing business to the competition.
I’ve never been a fan of those purveyors of over-priced beverages, where a cup of coffee can cost more that a pint of beer, so I’m pleased to see that some of the ‘great British public’ have decided to get their caffeine fix elsewhere.
Mind you they may get some of their more adventurous customers back if they add a new flavour to their lattes, cappuccinos, macchiatos, mochas and Frappuccinos.
I hate to think of what …
… a ‘Jumbo’ size would cost !
