Oh dear Ray. I bet you didn't think this would pop up.

“But I was a young fella. I did not understand the tax law. I did not pay taxes for 20 years. I got away with it.”

Winstone’s financial past began to emerge after he moaned about the UK tax system in a radio interview last week .

It then came out that he put nearly £350,000 of his £1.4million earnings for the year to April 2012 beyond the taxman’s reach, saying it was “administrative expenses”.

If he was eligible for tax from the time he was 16 and didn't pay it for 20 years, he wasn't a 'young fella' when he reached the age of 36. Using legal loopholes only available to the very rich too - just as bad as Sir Philip Green really.
