Poll: Should EU civil servants pay their "fair share" of tax?

EU civil servants pay as little as 8% income tax on their salaries, rising to 45% for the highest earners who can be on a salary of £190k or more. Big companies like Google and Starbucks (but not the left wing Guardian or Huffington Post of course, they're beyond reproach) have taken a battering over their perfectly legal exploitation of stupid tax laws to avoid paying tax.

Should tax avoiding UK citizens working for the EU be forced to pay their "fair share" of tax like the rest of us?
