Bono attacks pious MPs who don’t pay their taxes
Global campaigner Bono has slammed British M.P.s for avoiding paying tax on their expenses. ‘It’s the piousness I can’t stand,’ said the U2 star yesterday, posing for pictures outside the Houses of Parliament. ‘What’s really nauseating is they act like they’re saving the world, when all they’re doing is saving their receipts.’
Bono was particularly angry that while ordinary people have no loop holes to avoid income tax, MPs are able to avoid capital gains, and income tax, through their expense fiddles.
‘What a bunch of hypocrites.’ said the jet-setting green campaigner. ‘It makes me glad my business is registered in Holland.’
