Winstone: UK 'raped' by high taxes

Ray Winstone says he wouldn't trust any politician

Britain is being "raped" by high taxes, according to actor Ray Winstone.

"I don't see what we're being given back," he told Talk Sport radio.

The tough guy actor, star of Sweeney Todd and Sexy Beast, said of the taxman: "What does he give you back? I drive down the road, there's more holes in the road than there are in a tennis racket, and we've got no hospitals, we've got fire stations closing down."

Asked if he would continue to live in the south east, or saw himself moving about, he said: "I can see myself leaving here quite soon, actually. I love this country, but I've had enough of it, I don't see what we're being given back. I just see the country being raped."

As for politicians, the 56-year-old Londoner said: "I wouldn't trust any of them. Maybe we should all stop voting and then something would be done about it."
