Who the F*** is Mr Starbucks?

Lord Mandelson turned the air blue at a diplomatic residence with a four-letter attack on one of the world's most successful businessmen.

The Business Secretary reacted when Howard Schultz, the American tycoon behind Starbucks coffee, criticised the British economy. He said "Why should I have that guy running down the country? Who the f*** is he?".

The answer is a businessman who has set up a very successful franchise and is worth a billion or so.

Who the f*** are you, Peter Mandelson?

I actually asked out of not knowing - my google search of him didn't really provide the answer.

Cheers ;)
