Billy Bragg withholding tax in protest

So how many of you are in support of this and more importantly, how many of you have signed up to his petition.?

In support of what?

Who's Billy Bragg?

and what petition. A link would be handy.

Did he present the south bank show?

  Proclaimer 22:04 18 Jan 2010

but I can say I would not sympathise with anyone that does not pay their tax, no matter what reason they give.

I thought he was a protest singer, perhaps he should sing a protest song...

If he has a valid gripe and a better way of addressing it, then I might listen to him.

you cant fight city hall.

Well, you can actually, just not like this. All he is going to achieve is a whole load of grief for himself further down the line.

Even if he is right.

'Who is Billy Bragg' is amazing that in this era of communications and world-wide dissemination of knowledge that they are so many who are unable to take advantage of easily accessible knowledge or too lazy to use their idolant brains to Google.
I despair.

Publicity stunt for a no hoper.

He has been described as a 'National treasure'.....something that you will never attain.....dream here
