I’m not sure how it happened, one minute I was drinking wine at my desk, the next minute I was stood in the middle of crowd of U2 fans with Nat and Lucio holding protest banners…

The utterly dull U2 were playing a gig for Radio 1 on top of Broadcasting House, it’s only round the corner from our office so Nat decided that this was his opportunity to sort out Bono’s tax problems. I don’t know much about it, but apparently U2 are squirreling their earnings away in Holland, and so avoiding UK tax. Something like 0.5% of our taxes go to aid in Africa, so by not paying taxes in the UK Bono is pretty much destroying Africa. Or just setting a bad example really.
