Christine Lagarde pays no taxes

Christine Lagarde
Is anyone else as flabbergasted, even as angry as I am about this? It seems that Christine Lagarde, the IMF boss who last week railed against those Greeks who don't pay their taxes, doesn't pay what? You've guessed it, taxes. As the following report in the Guardian tells us:

"As an official of an international institution, her salary of $467,940 (£298,675) a year plus $83,760 additional allowance a year is not subject to any taxes."  

This is wrong, wrong, wrong. Things must be changed.
