Multi-millionaire pop singer Adele has burnished her woman-of-the-people credentials by complaining about her tax bill. Speaking in an interview to Q Magazine, she blasted:
“I went to state school, I’m mortified to have to pay 50%. Trains are always late, most state schools are shit and I’ve gotta give you, like, four million quid? Are you having a laugh? When I got my tax bill in from [her album] 19 I was ready to go and buy a gun and randomly open fire.”
“The BRIT School is Britain’s only FREE Performing Arts and Technology School. It is an independent, state funded City College for the Technology of the Arts”
Along with other graduates, such as The Kooks, The Feeling, Amy Winehouse and Katie Melua, Adele owes a not inconsiderable amount to her state education, having herself described the school as “amazing”.
She has climbed the ladder of opportunity and, whilst it hangs by a thread, would rather cut it off completely.
