The guy has some neck but that's hardly news as he was always the same.

It’s a good idea to help homeless people especially at this time of year. I wouldn’t wish it on anyone.

Well done bono.

He needs a hot poker stuck right into his eye, possibly more than once.

Why pay more taxes than you legally have to ?

It's not like the taxes the government already take in are used to solve homelessness.

He allegedly has personal wealth of €600 million.

He could dig deep, give away half his wealth and buy 100 houses.

He doesn’t have to of course, it’s easier to do this ****e.

Which charity gets most of the money to the poor and the least to the bosses of the charities?

Work with a support group that provides counceling and run a drop in centre, all volunteer ran and supported by fundraising.
Perhaps if the super rich paid a fair share of taxes more funding could be circulated where it’s needed.

I'd imagine, between taxes and private contributions, many of us pay more as a percentage of our income to relieve the plight of the homeless than Bono.
