IRE Uncut Playing Cards

“…striking a note which is certain to resonate with people all over Ireland, the singer supports the call for a referendum on the bank bailout.  “That is an affront; that is an injustice to the Irish people,” he says of the socialisation of private debt. “It would be a very sophisticated thing indeed should the Irish people demand a chance to debate and argue, and finally decide themselves, on what will in the end be a decision that will affect their children and grandchildren.”” [Bono in interview with Olaf Tyaransen, Hot Press, May 2011]

“U2 SINGER Bono says he was “stung” and “hurt” by criticism of the band moving part of its business to the Netherlands to lessen its tax burden.” [Bono, The Irish Times, Feb 2009]
