BRITAIN has suggested that if the Queen wants to avoid tax she could at least do up her own house with her own money.
As it emerged the monarch is giving Vladimir Putin lessons in ‘tax efficiency’, her subjects said she could perhaps fund the £370m refurbishment of Buckingham Palace instead of them.
Stephen Malley, from Stevenage, said: “I’m a teacher so I don’t have 48 accountants based in the Cayman Islands.
“This means I’m doing up my kitchen with a six grand loan from Barclays, rather than asking the Queen to pay for it.
“And applying for the loan was no picnic. Barclays may as well have given me an anal probe.”
He added: “I was brought up to believe that if you want nice things you should work hard and pay for them yourself, rather than creating a series of elaborate scams involving offshore funds and the British public’s belief in ‘tradition’ and ‘continuity’.
“But what would I know? I’m just a history teacher who pays tax at 20 percent like a fucking idiot.”
