The End is Nighy

“We all owe any success we have had in our acting careers, to varying degrees, to films supported by the UK Film Council” screamed Bill Nighy in his last doomed toe-dip into the political arena. Since then he’s become the frontman for the cute, if incorrectly named, “Robin Hood Tax” campaign that would surrender the City of London to the sinking European ship. Old Bill clearly hasn’t taken the time to think these two campaigns through though…

The Film Council lobbied the government for tax breaks and special favours, yet this seems to be fine as long as Bill can “owe any success” to it. He even appeared in films shot in the Isle of Man for tax reasons – such as Wild Target. If Nighy wants a unilateral financial tax, Guido wants a unilateral Film Transaction Tax from the man himself. Perhaps “a tiny tax” on every single box-office and DVD sale?
