What a surprise

Irish super-group U2 faces protest -- for moving business to a more tax friendly country.

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.

The protest has been provoked by U2's decision to move their multi-million-pound music and publishing business away from Ireland thus allegedly avoiding taxes on record sales.

Just yet another example of "progressive" hypocrisy. It never ends.
