This past Saturday, members of the activist group UK Uncut staged protests at several Topshop locations to voice their anger at Sir Phillip Green.

The Topshop boss has been accused of tax evasion after he directly paid his wife and owner of the UK retailer's parent company Arcadia Group, over $1 billion. Since Green's wife lives in Monaco, he never had to pay UK taxes on the large sum of money.

One protester vented:

"Philip Green is a multi-billionaire tax avoider, and yet is regarded by David Cameron as an appropriate man to advise the government on austerity. His missing millions need to be reclaimed and invested into public services, not into his wife's bank account."

Phillip has maintained he pays his taxes in the UK and is doing nothing wrong.
