Sir Michael Caine hails Brexit FREEDOM: 'I'd rather be a poor master than a rich servant'

 Sir Michael Caine believes Brexit has given Britain 'freedom'

BRITISH film icon Sir Michael Caine has praised the UK’s decision to leave the EU and said the people have voted for “freedom”. As negotiations between the UK Government and EU officials are set to get underway, the 84-year-old star was optimistic about Britain’s future outside of the Brussels bloc. He told Sky News: "I think it will be all right."I voted for Brexit... what it is with me, I'd rather be a poor master than a rich servant. "It wasn't about the racism, immigrants or anything, it was about freedom."He urged critics not to fear Britain’s future outside the EU, and said politics was about treading new paths. Sir Michael added: "Politics is always chaotic."In politics you're always going into areas you've never been before, so you're going to get lost and then you're going to find your way, and then it'll be alright." Ahead of the EU referendum last year, the Italian Job star was praised by former Ukip leader Nigel Farage when he hit out at Brussels' "faceless civil servants". He added: "To me, you've now got in Europe a sort of government by-proxy of everybody, who has now got carried away."Unless there is some extremely significant changes, we should get out. You cannot be dictated to by thousands of faceless civil servants."Sir Michael is set to join Morgan Freeman, Jack Whitehall and Take That on The Graham Norton Show this week to promote his new film, Going in Style.
