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.

    When you’re 84 year old Michael Caine you can say whatever the god damned fuck you want.

    I love Sir Michael. I’ve been thinking a lot about him lately, particularly in this movie which I feel is so a propos for our time:

      I also like him in “Zulu”.

        One of my top ten war movies. Thank God it was directed by a Brit and not a Hollywood jackwad.

    “May tells EU: Gibraltar is not up for debate”

    Translation from Orwellian Newspeak into plain English:
    Gibraltar is to be used as a sledge to force the UK into submission, with May’s blessing.
