My Heart Bleeds…

I see that Adele is complaining that she has to pay 50% Income Tax on her earnings of, apparently, £8 million for last year.

I pay more tax (52%) on my earnings that, last year, amounted to less than 1% of her income. Somehow, if I were in her shoes, I think that I would be able to struggle by on an after-tax income of four million quid.

Feet of clay, feet of clay…

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
