Hawkins Hates Blair Tax
THE DARKNESS frontman JUSTIN HAWKINS resents his band's success - because he has to pay thousands of pounds (dollars) in tax to British Prime Minister TONY BLAIR.
The I BELIEVE IN A THING CALLED LOVE hitmaker is disillusioned by the politician's stance on the Iraq war and resented paying GBP500,000 ($900,000) income tax last year (04).
He says, "Exactly, That's what I paid in taxes last year. Half a million quid.
"Can you imagine what it feels like to send half a million quid to Tony Blair?
"I hate Tony Blair."
