I'm not a fan of the guy, but he built it, he should keep it. What exactly did she do?

To those asking how she earned 25%... She stood by her husband and supported him through the start of Amazon, in their garage! As a happily married man whose wife lovingly supports him, there is a lot I can do at work when I know that my wife has my back.

It is about time that Amazon UK were forced to pay their fair share of tax. How can this one man accumulate so much money? It is pure unadulterated greed.
