Web trolls target Michael Caine after he hails Brexit, saying ‘I’d rather be a poor master than a rich servant’

Sir Michael Caine hailed Brexit as a vote for freedom from rule by ‘faceless civil servants’ yesterday.

But while some praised the 84-year-old film star for his ‘sane’ views that ‘hit the nail on the head’, he faced a torrent of abuse from Remain-supporting internet trolls who branded him an ‘old and senile bigot’.

Sir Michael said he was confident leaving the EU would be ‘all right’, adding: ‘I voted for Brexit. What it is with me, I’d rather be a poor master than a rich servant.
