Ben Kingsley stars in new Robin Hood tax video

Last month I featured a video promoting the idea of a Robin Hood Tax — a tiny tax on bankers that would give billions to tackle poverty and climate change across the world.

The campaign has just launched a new video, this time starring Ben Kingsley and some cast members from a couple of British TV series — the Inbetweeners, and Skins.

At the end of the video, there’s the opportunity for viewers to vote on whether they think the tax is a good idea or not.

Also have a look at the campaign website, to see other ways they are enabling supporters to get involved — it includes an option to put a Robin Hood mask on your Twitter profile.
