    Default I wonder who pays their taxes

    During the U.S. election, much was made of Mitt Romneys tax return. It would be interesting to see if our leaders are paying their fair share. Or is it a case of do as we say, not as we do. Top civil servants could be looked at as well. Its just a thought

    Wasn't/Isn't Bertie non-tax compliant at one stage?

    I couldnt speak for those within the Labour party however.

    In other words Sure we wouldn't be up that that but those other hoors, well

    Why not have a national register of tax payers as per Scandinavian countries. We can all see who pays what.

    I thought that all TD's had to demonstrate that they were tax-compliant. Is it not a prerequisite to sitting in the Dail?

    I imagine sitting politicians pay PAYE tax. The OP's example was Romney - who wasn't yet elected.

    Would that be the friend of Kenny, Denis O'Brien, controlled media or some other media?
