The Purple shall rule! Adele wrote to say, "Just something to say. Why can’t East London get the cheapest flights? It is so unfair that other places can get cheaper flights. I earn (a) very small salary and I cant even get on the flights as the prices are so expensive and swallow all my pay. Please do think about East London for a change and you will see the big difference."
