Michael Caine on why he voted Brexit:

"I'd rather be a poor master than a rich servant"

Michael currently has quite a lot of money.

I don't know much about Mr.Caine other than to say I quite admire many of his film roles.
His role as 'Peachy Carnahan' from 'The man who would be King' definitely stands out as one of my top ten films of all time.

Actually, I think I could come up with many more deserving candidates for "prat of the week" without trying too hard.

Maybe, but you should bear in mind that some of us see Brexit as a profound calamity, so to hear a multi-millionaire mouthing a platitude that is inappropriate to his situation and (more to the point) to hear lots of poor people mouthing it when its even more inappropriate to their situation because they're going to be poorer, really grates.*

*People on the other side of the debate will tell you that ultimately the poor won't become poorer. However, so far as can be judged at this stage by the vast majority of economists, they will.
