The "we couldn’t have said it better ourselves" award goes to Sir Michael Caine who, at the prospect of the top tax rate in Great Britain rising to 50 percent, said this:
"The Government has taken tax up to 50 per cent, and if it goes to 51 I will be back in America. We’ve got 3.5 million layabouts on benefits, and I’m 76, getting up at 6am to go to work to keep them. Let’s get everybody back to work so we can save a couple of billion and cut tax, not keep sticking it up."
Caine joins Andrew Lloyd Webber as a member of the first round of British celebrities who’ve had enough of the tax and spend attitude that has defined liberalism for far too long.
It would appear that the British Atlas may be shrugging. Cheers to them.
