Robbie Williams: I'm a communist

London - Robbie Williams is a secret communist.

The Take That singer believes the political movement - which aims for a classless society based upon common ownership - is preferable to capitalism, although he admits he struggles with his political beliefs because he wants to buy a Rolls Royce.

Writing on his blog, he revealed: "Capitalistic conspiracy? I'm with you. The system is destined to explode and I think it's sooner rather than later... If we could get communism to work without corruption... I'm in... The Rolls Royce Phantom is the ultimate symbol (for me anyway) of our desire for 'stuff' and it's all 'stuff'. Bulls**t when you break it down... consume, consume, consume... we're at the tipping point my friends.

"Fasten your seatbelt we're in for a bumpy ride... I'm a socialist capitalist which leads to guilt. (sic)"

Robbie, 37, is having such a dilemma over his lavish tastes, he has asked his fans for their advice on whether he should splash out on the extravagant £300 000 vehicle or not.

He said: "I'm having a bit a Rolls Royce Phantom issue at the minute... have been for a couple of years now... truth be told... I'd luuuuuurrrrrvvvvee one... but I think about you lot and what you would think of me... I know it's a vulgar display of wealth... I guess I'm asking your permission... let's have a vote... If you lot by majority think it's ok then I'll treat myself, if not I won't, serious. (sic)"
