The outspoken singer said avoiding paying tax was “greedy and wrong”, pointing out the money should be used to fund public services such as the NHS and transport systems.
Oh I agree. But I suppose she probably feels a little differently now that she apparently has to sell her $5.5 million dollar house, to pay back taxes. You know, the ones she never filed in the first place.
Pop Star Lily Allen has been forced to put her £4.2 million country pile (country pile? -Ed.) on the market after being hit by a huge tax demandOh but don't worry, she's apparently moved into a two bedroom apartment in London and was totally going to downsize anyway. Gee that's really all too bad. What a shame. Imagine at one point having enough money to buy a $5 million dollar house, and now you owe so much in taxes you have to sell it. Maybe she's never heard that story about the frog that gives a scorpion a ride on his back across a rain swollen river because the frog wants to be nice to the poor scorpion. Except her story is a little different. She's the frog, and the government is the scorpion except it's a gigantic 18 wheeler that's going to run her down and leave her with permanent injuries that will make her homeless. Hey buck up Lily at least you'll have a nice smooth sidewalk or a fancy "transport system" to sleep on. And it's all because you did your duty as a citizen and paid your taxes. Ta daa! See? The system works.
