Ever seen this? Got reminded of it by Milan's mention a couple of posts back.
I have no great love of large international corporations from many years of reading books like No Logo, The Beauty Myth, Fast Food Nation and Fatland. Got distracted by this a while back, it's McDonalds UK website on which they have a section devoted to answering your questions.
In all fairness, someone in their PR(evil alien blood-sucking lizard) department said "lads, we're going to get murdered if we do a gloss over job on this. Why don't we answer the questions, all of the questions totally honestly? Mad, eh? Let's go for lunch to a wine bar and on later to Grouchos to celebrate!!!"
Have a trawl through where they give answers to questions such as:

I have heard that McDonald's UK felt that it could utilize vast areas of the fertile cressent to grow grains to make sandwitch buns. Is this true and what is McDonald's UK's position on the ongoing conflict in the middle east?
They're all here:
