Take That frontman Gary Barlow has given HMRC a ‘take it or leave it’ ultimatum concerning his sordid tax affairs.
Barlow insists he either gets to keep the money he has embezilled...or he releases another solo album of cloying self-penned power balads to cover the cost.
The singer offered HMRC a ‘sweetheart’ deal in which he gets to avoid paying any of the disputed taxes and we (the public) get to avoid hearing a new album of his colour-by-numbers songwriting tosh.
Although HMRC says it wouldn’t normally cave in to such transparent ransom demands they warned that in view of Barlow’s previous history of album making the threat of new material had to be taken seriously.
HMRC said the public had some tough decisions to make regarding Barlow’s tax affairs.....either they get a new NHS hospital containing a specialist head trauma unit or a new album containing 12 previously unheard tracks of sickly, saccharine pant wetting dross.
‘Most people would agree preventing a head trauma is better than trying to cure one’ said Dr.Ambrose from the NHS Head Trauma Unit ‘at least someone involved in a head-on collision with a runaway truck in a motorway pile up has some chance of one day coming out of a coma. Sadly the same can’t be said for anybody caught up in the next Gary Barlow car crash.
Only Barlow could make a motorway pile with dozens either dead or injured seem like the better of two evils.
A neuronal head injury or a subdural hygromas really isn't all that bad once you get used to it.
Which you can't honestly say about a Gary Barlow album.
I really don’t see HMRC have much choice on this one’.
