Michael Caine: He’s terrific in the movies but should keep his mouth shut about current affairs.

“I’d rather be a poor master of my own fate than a rich servant of somebody else’s,” said Michael Caine – who isn’t poor by anybody’s standards.

Watch him say it here:

The flaw in his argument is obvious: Brexit will deprive those who are genuinely poor of their rights. The Tories have eliminated them from their Bill to transfer EU legislation to the UK.

This means that the vast majority of the UK population will be left at the mercy of the cruel Tories, who are champing at the bit to reintroduce all the class-ridden prejudices that the UK ditched when we were progressing as a country, rather than going backwards.

Tories can’t wait for the day they’ll be able to force us to refer to them as our “betters”, or our “masters”. They’ll be demanding we tug our forelocks to them at every opportunity – on pain of losing whatever pittance they deign to pay us.

Because our rights as workers – and as human beings – were protected by the EU. They may have been introduced by progressive UK governments, but the current administration isn’t progressive at all and can’t wait to exploit you into the grave.

So, Michael Caine is completely wrong.

Brexit won’t make us the poor masters of our own destiny; it will make us the destitute slaves of the Tories.
