Bill Nighy and the Robin Hood Tax

I love this campaign video for the Robin Hood Tax, starring Bill Nighy. The Robin Hood Tax is a proposal for a tiny, tiny tax on speculative financial transactions. This would generate billions of dollars, which could be used to fight poverty and climate change, and improve public services.

I just love the way the video cuts through the nonsense, and uses dialogue to put across a powerful message, while powrfully undercutting the opposition’s objections.

  1. Thanks so much for that video! It’s new to me and I shall go straight over to youtube and grab it for posting – perhaps the next time politicians in my country start defending the poor banks.
