Force them also to pay taxes in the countries where they actually make the cash! And forbid them to spread their bias meddling in politics. Service companies should not be allowed to meddle in politics at all!

I so agree. They should have to register their business in every country they operate and be taxed accordingly, and not register in some tax haven elsewhere to avoid it. Better still, I should like to see the complete collapse of ‘social’ media – it is anything but social – people sitting in front of a screen all day instead of getting out and about, being creative, listening to different views, etc.

Not only `social’ media but also ALL multinational corporations. Remember the fuss Britons made during and after the London Olympics when it was found that the multinationals were raking in hundreds of millions and not paying taxes in the UK?

I can’t speak for Australia, but Canadian media content is uniformly grade A propaganda and garbage – they should pay you to read it ….

Remember how that awful rag “Metro” plastered the country with free “news”? The sales of local newspapers, some of which were not bad and even had investigative reporters, declined when people grabbed their freebie. As if propaganda is every free! I often wondered whether Metro was set up with the intention of causing the decline. It certainly disappeared as rapidly as it had appeared.
