Currently in Ireland, "recognized artists" are exempt from paying income tax. Bono is an Irish "artist." In January of next year, changes to the taxation act will include the provision that only 50% of an artist's income will be tax exempt if that income exceeds half a million dollars. So how does the man who demands wealthier nations redistribute even more of the stolen loot from the vassals to "those in need" react to the changes? He pulls his bank account from Ireland and relocates it to a country where he can keep more of his own money.
. . . U2, the famous Irish band, has moved some of its assets from Ireland to the Netherlands. The Netherlands has a very favourable tax rate, even better than Ireland, which for artists is already a tax haven of unimaginable indulgence. U2 is of course Bono's band, Bono, the Stephen Forbes business partner and the greatest scold of "rich" governments on the face of the earth. Bono was the man who nagged Paul Martin in public for Canada's not giving enough for African debt relief, but then Bono, friend of Bill Clinton, consort of the princes of the world, World Economic Forum attendee, gazillionaire, nags everyone about Africa.HT: Darcey
With the usual hypocrisy we have come to expect from Bono, he practices heteronormative, capitalistic behaviour while preaching from the pages of The Communist Manifesto. Two tiers. There's Bono and his rich, enlightened, entitled and discriminatory pals, and then there is the rest of us taxpaying proletariats to pay the bill for the approved agenda.
