A Tax for Thee, But Not For Me
Well Bono is now a full-fledged out-and-out hypocrite. After speaking out on world poverty and how more needs to be done, it turns out that Bono and his fellow bandmates are quite good at moving their money around to avoid paying taxes on it.
As of last year, U2 had amassed a net worth of 629 million euros — around $908 million — according to the annual “Rich List” of top earners in The Sunday Times of Britain.
You know, I can’t help but think that Bono and his fellow band members could feed quite a few starving children with just a fraction of that money. But, noooooo, that money will stay safely hidden in the Netherlands. Just in case, you know, Bono needs to buy a new pair of sunglasses or something.
