Billy Bragg in Facebook protest as he refuses to pay income tax unless RBS bonuses are curbed

Billy Bragg is refusing to pay his taxes unless the Government curbs the 'excessive' bonuses at the Royal Bank of Scotland.

The singer-songwriter and political activist is urging the public to withhold tax payments to 'convince the Treasury to act'.

RBS, which is 84 per cent owned by the taxpayer following a string of bailouts, is expected to pay up to £1.5billion in bonuses to its investment bankers.

Bragg, 52, has launched a Facebook campaign in protest and is urging people to write to Alistair Darling about the huge payouts at the part-nationalised bank.
