British pop music singer and songwriter Lily Allen opened up a political forum of sorts on Twitter this morning when she questioned the moral difference between tax avoiders and benefit cheats. Needless to say, she got quite the response from her followers.

Her comment that tax avoiders are “several hundred times worse” than benefit cheats really opened the floodgates and brought on an unusual outpouring of support for … the tax avoiders.

Luckily, the government over in London can take solace in knowing that Lily is on its side when it comes to tax fraud, and she is a much better spokesperson on the topic than someone like actor Wesley Snipes.
