Robin Hood in the 21st Century

I don't know much (yet) about the Robin Hood tax proposal in the UK, which my old stomping grounds of Adbusters is promoting for general use, with a global march on Oct. 29.  But Bill Nighy is an actor I admire greatly, and this ironic "commercial" for this idea is worth watching for him alone.  (He's in some of the Johnny Depp Pirates movies, but among his best screen roles is another and much less known pirate movie, called Pirate Radio.  A great movie about 1960s rock in the UK. )  Still, the idea has obvious appeal, and may well become a 99% Movement proposal.
