Check it out ...A Nobel Peace Prize nominee who campaigns against global poverty is moving his vast fortune around to avoid paying taxes that go towards support of the poor.
That's the story being written about Bono, the Irish superstar who harangues the world to re-distribute wealth from rich to poor. Except it doesn't work that way for HIM.
And conservatives are supposed to be the greedy hypocrites?
"...He is the rock legend dubbed 'Saint Bono' for his long-running campaign against global poverty.
But when Bono's band U2 perform at Glastonbury later this month, protesters are planning to accuse them of avoiding taxes which could have helped exactly the sort of people the singer cares about so dearly.
Members of activist group Art Uncut will hoist a massive inflatable sign with the message 'Bono Pay Up' spelt out in lights during the Irish band's headline performance.
They will also parade bundles of oversized fake cash in front of the singer.
