Several Irish politicians have criticised U2 frontman Bono for moving his band's business overseas to slash its tax bill.

The singer and anti-poverty campaigner claims the decision to move U2's business to the Netherlands is in line with Irish government policy on tax competitiveness, dismissing the band's critics as "the cranky left".

But some Irish Members of Parliament (Mps) are adamant the Beautiful Day hitmakers should be paying more tax in their native country to help its economic recovery.

Irish Mp Roisin Shortall tells Britain's Daily Mail newspaper, "Everybody needs to put their shoulder to the wheel in terms of bringing Ireland back to recovery and it would be great to see U2 and Bono play their full part in that."
