It is fair to say that tax avoidance happens in Mysterious Ways, in European cities Where the Streets Have No Name. But it looks like those participating in such activity are now Stuck in a Moment That You Can’t Get Out Of.

At Fair Tax Town we think the Sweetest Thing would be for everyone to pay their fair share, be it rock stars, national heroes, aid pioneers, Live Aid legends, charity figureheads, big egos, musicians, singer-songwriters, venture capitalists, businessmen, philanthropists, front men of Dublin-based rock bands, those of a strong moral and ethical belief, or all of the above!
