Bill Nighy and Richard Curtis collaborated on a little film explaining why taking a few pennies from millionaires — who wouldn’t even notice! — in order to help the planet would be a good thing. Because it just sounds like such a horrible idea!
Pretty brilliant move, calling it the Robin Hood Tax. Who doesn’t love Robin Hood? I’ll tell you who: the evil Sheriff of Nottingham, who probably fucked sheep, or at least helpless serving wenches in Nottingham Castle, and evil King John, whose arm had to be twisted to sign the Magna Carta, the basis of all modern democracy. And that’s it. Who wants to be on their side?
