I'll be seeing the Arctic Monkeys in 22 days. If I get a chance, I'll ask them about it.

Doubt if they'll hear me, tho.

People use complex and poorly written tax laws to pay less taxes. Somehow this is shocking? Hell I do that and I only recently moved above minimum wage.

I was in Ireland in March. As anyone who's been there can tell you, you can sit in pretty much any pub and you'll hear what Bono's been up to that day. Apparently, there's a big stink right now because he's been doing something to avoid paying Irish taxes. You'll even see graffiti like, "Stop being a sh*t and pay your taxes, Bono!"

Unemployed socialists don't like it when rich people don't pay taxes, apparently.

This.

Paying the least amount of tax you can under the law makes you a patriot.  Paying more makes you a moron.

Aggressively avoiding taxes is illegal now?  Somebody better tell Mitt Rmoney to expect a call from the IRS.

Funny how rich socialists only think YOU should have to pay your taxes.  This story must be fake anyways.  Fark assured me that higher taxes do not deter people from paying them.

Saw them a while back when they were in Boston. Amazing show, though Brianstorm wasn't nearly as fast as it was suppose to be

Even though you're a horrible ass, I came here to post near verbatim your first statement.

Pay your farking taxes. You make bank being a musician? You can only do that because of the societal construct we all benefit from. It aint free.

And your douchey last comment? Only selfish pricks, political leanings aside, avoid taxes.

Pay your farking taxes and if you have a problem with the system change it another way.

Pay your farking taxes, losers.

Not exactly - they are a senior rank of barristers, who can represent anyone, not just the Crown:

The UK could easily fix this issue by taxing worldwide income.

Oh, I do.  Unfortunately all my money is in a bank on some island.  So I cant really pay taxes on most of it.  But I'm really thankful that people like you work so hard to keep up the place.

If Michael Caine is involved then it can't possibly be illegal.

Should've done like U2 and move all that to Ireland if they wanted to avoid paying those kinda taxes.

No one likes when multimillionaires don't pay taxes.

Jesus, you can tell the author was really going for maximum words to stretch out that story. The words "aggressive", "tax scheme" and "avoidance" were used multiple times in the first 3 paragraphs, without actually telling a single farking thing about who did what, for how much, or what the scheme actually was.
