Wally of the Week – Sir Michael Caine

Section:

Actor Michael Caine claims to be “a socialist” in spite of having been involved in a tax avoidance scheme and previously leaving Britain to avoid the top rate of tax in the 1970s

Sir Michael Caine, CBE is a man who flip-flops like no other and whose political views are best described as “chaotic”. Though a man known for fleeing Britain for America to avoid high taxes in the 1970s and a man named as an investor in a tax avoidance scheme named Liberty in 2014, the pro-Brexit actor has this week called himself a “socialist” and went as far to say: “I wouldn’t live in a country that didn’t pay income tax”.

 

In an interview with the Catholic newspaper The Universe, Sir Michael remarked:

“I’m a socialist, basically. I want as much money as possible for poor people, to help whoever’s in trouble. I wouldn’t live in a country that didn’t pay income tax”.

 

“What you have to do is keep emotion out of it. You can’t say: ‘We hate these rich people, we’re going to tax them to smithereens’. You’ve got to have them stay in your country and pay the tax”.

 

A public supporter of Margaret Thatcher, David Cameron and even Tony Blair, Sir Michael was forced to pay a significant sum to Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs after being exposed as part of the Liberty scheme and also made a fool of himself in another regard. The actor also told The Universe:

 

“In order to do something good, I don’t just do work which is no good. I don’t do commercials’.

 

In 2013, he was paid a six-figure sum to film a commercial for Sky television. How conveniently the man forgets.

  1. He is only doing what is in the best interests of his family!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Don’t you dare criticize this great, great man!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Shameful!!!!!!!!!!!!! Shameful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Another editorial comment from Matthew Steeples – the editor who tells it like he fantasises it to be.

    I am staggered that in a country that now seems to be almost overrun with “Wallies” the editor should pick on Sir Michael Caine who, if my own experience is anything to go by, has given enormous pleasure to literally tens of millions of film viewers. Frankly until now I did not know the “great man” was a BREXIT supporter and if It were possible for him to have gone up in my estimation he would have done so

  3. I’m sorry, but I can’t have anything said against my hero, Michael.
    Ok, so he did leave the country to minimise his tax, but who wouldn’t. Also it was very early in his career, and he was probably advised that was the best thing to do.
    As Carter said, You’re a big man, but you’re in bad shape. With me it’s a full time job. Now behave yourself.
