bye then, love

Don't let the door hit you on the arse on the way out

UnquietDad Sun 04-Oct-09 11:33:57

I wonder if she speaks French?

TAFKAtheUrbanDryad Sun 04-Oct-09 11:35:27

Good. Fuck off then.

UnquietDad Sun 04-Oct-09 11:37:12

I can't believe she is complaining about having to pay tax when she sells her ridiculous "art" at such exorbitant prices.

TAFKAtheUrbanDryad Sun 04-Oct-09 11:39:05

Yes, it's only for incomes over £150k that the higher tax rate she's talking about applies. Oh, boo fucking hoo, you won't be able to buy food? Or pay your bills? Oh, you will? Well, excuse me if I just wring out my handkerchief Tracey!

No TAFKA - keep your snot on your handkerchief and put it in the Tate...

Had half an ear listening to the Andrew Marr programme and Polly Toynbee said that it will cost her a lot more (can't remember the name of the tax)when it comes to sell her art in France.

see ya then ,

janeite Sun 04-Oct-09 11:49:26

Bye then Trace. God, I can't stand her.

mumblechum Sun 04-Oct-09 12:20:19

The 50p thing only applies to income over and above the £150k threshold.

I can't stand TE simply because she has such a weird smug face.

Oh god, she's not coming here, is she?

donnie Sun 04-Oct-09 14:18:40

good riddance. Silly bint - like she's such an integral part of the UK's artistic canon anyway.

Maybe she can shack up with Lewis Hamilton or Sean Connery - or Bono, isn't he a tax grasping git as well? like he really needs the cash.

God don't let her move to Belgium - 55% tax is normal here for even relatively low paid jobs!

MirandaBailey Sun 04-Oct-09 14:25:34

From the Sunday Times:

"She joins a threatened exodus by celebrities, footballers and hedge fund bosses in search of less onerous tax regimes."

Anyone care to join me in a mexican wave?

donnie Sun 04-Oct-09 14:51:23

oh excellent news about footballers - I do wish they'd all bugger orf.

HerBeatitude Sun 04-Oct-09 14:57:25

LOL, the French are welcome to her.

They really understand art there. She's wasted here. grin

pofacedandproud Sun 04-Oct-09 14:58:23

I thought the French had high taxes? God she sounds up herself.

pofacedandproud Sun 04-Oct-09 14:59:23

I agree with this bit though

"We should never have got involved in either Iraq or Afghanistan. Nor should we have bid for the Olympics, which we've now got and cannot afford,"

donnie Sun 04-Oct-09 14:59:24

she'd certainly keep the wine merchants in business.

Meglet Sun 04-Oct-09 15:00:08

I like Tracey Emin. I'm very disappointed in her shock.

The footballers can all go though.

said Sun 04-Oct-09 15:02:54

She just says "may" leave. Unfortunately. Higher VAT in France.

funtimewincies Sun 04-Oct-09 20:12:18

She will be sorely missed hmm.

PoisonToadstool Sun 04-Oct-09 20:14:06

'I can't bear to pay 50% tax'

well fucking bully for you then love.

CybilLiberty Sun 04-Oct-09 20:14:17

I really cannot abide Tracey Emin. She is a classic case of 'The Emperors New Clothes'
