Grey Thoughts
Bono and Poverty
Those social justice guys who bag everyone else for not giving enough money to the poor, and not forcing their governments to donate more often turn out to be a bit hypocritical. It seems Bono may be different.
Bono, the rock star and campaigner against Third World debt, is asking the Irish government to contribute more to Africa. At the same time, he's reducing tax payments that could help fund that aid.
Bono and U2, unhappy with the good tax haven status of Ireland, are moving their biz to the Netherlands.

Great stuff...Of course, it could be the case that Bono donates a bigger proportion of his income to the needy than the government would, in which case, it wouldn't be hypocritical.
