And I thought I felt strongly about taxes...

Though she has a point... Adele on the taxes she pays in the UK (DigitalSpy via AdamSmith):

I'm mortified to have to pay 50%. Trains are always late, most state schools are s*** and I've gotta give you, like, four million quid? Are you having a laugh? When I got my tax bill in from [my album] 19 I was ready to go and buy a gun and randomly open fire.
Kudos to her for not being a bloviating hypocrite bemoaning the excesses of the rich while running off to some tax haven to blatently avoid taxes (Slate).
