I'm not a financial expert. The Robin Hood tax seems to

I’m not a financial expert. The Robin Hood tax seems to me a very simple and beautiful idea. I don’t see the problem.
Bill Nighy
Maid Marion, who said to Robin Hood, I will not live in a house with a Little John. Never got a dinner!
Red Buttons
My message to David Cameron, as the head of our government, is to seriously think again about this Robin Hood tax, the tax to help the poor by taking a little bit from the rich.
Keith O’Brien
This is Robin Hood in reverse. These tax cap proposals favor those with the most expensive properties. We are spreading the taxes to those with some of the least expensive property.
Clementa C. Pinckney
The image of the bank robber I had in mind was more in the European tradition where you’d rob banks and give to the poor, like Robin Hood. It was that mythology. But very early on, my whole preoccupation was with art-studying it, examining every piece of work.
Tony Shafrazi
One of my earliest inspirations was the ‘Allan-a-Dale’ character played by Elton Hayes in the 1954 movie ‘The Story Of Robin Hood And His Merrie Men.’ He was a wandering minstrel with his guitar.
Denny Laine
Richard Armitage is very good at the old horse riding because of course he did it in ‘Robin Hood,’ so he’s very good at that.
James Nesbitt
I’m no savior, and I’m no Robin Hood.
J Balvin
The idea of a stag hunt evokes chivalry – knights in jerkins and hose, ladies on sidesaddles with wimples and billowing dresses, a white stag symbolizing something-or-other, and Robin Hood getting in the way. An actual stag hunt is more like a horseback meeting of a county planning commission.
P. J. O’Rourke
Growing up as a Brit, Arthur and Merlin and Camelot, and just the idea of it, is embedded in the culture and in your soul, growing up. King Arthur is alongside Robin Hood, as those great British folk tales, myths and icons.
Chris Chibnall
I’m no robin hood, I enjoy making the money.
Carl Icahn
I thought I’d write a massive postmodern novel about Richard the Lionheart and Robin Hood, but it turns out they couldn’t have met because the first mention of Robin Hood appears 60 years after Richard died.
Justin Cartwright
In true-life dramas, you have to do so much research. It’s a big responsibility to make sure things are as correct as possible. In ‘Robin Hood’, you have more artistic license – it’s all action, adventure and reaction. This gives everyone a chance to make their characters their own and to make them believable.
Joanne Froggatt
Trying to please everyone can be very hard, but, like Shrek or The Simpsons, Robin Hood manages to entertain adults and children at the same time, but in different ways.
Richard Armitage
I would rather portray the hero, if it’s a really great film. All my favorite fictional film characters are heroes, such as in “The Last of the Mohicans” and “Robin Hood.”
Jonathan Jackson
I always wanted to be Robin Hood or John the Baptist when I was growing up.
Bear Grylls
Absence makes the heart grow fonder
Eleanor Roosevelt
Robin Hood had it right.Humanity’s deepest wish is to spread the wealth.
Frans de Waal
For Halloween, I’ve gone trick-or-treating as Mary Poppins, Peter Pan, and Robin Hood.
Jonathan Groff
Essentially, Robin Hood put a smackdown on the medieval equivalent of the IRS.
Steven Crowder
We’re going to rebuild Puerto Rico with money that we saved from the IRS in a Robin Hood fashion.
Brock Pierce
Sadly, this is the same old Republican story of Robin Hood in reverse – tax cuts for the rich while programs for average and low income Americans suffer.
Jose Serrano
I was a real tomboy as a little girl. I wore boys’ clothes and played at being Robin Hood.
Davina McCall
My agent asked if I fancied Robin Hood and I thought: ‘Yeah, why not?’ I hadn’t watched it, to be honest, but I’d seen bits and knew it was really popular Saturday family viewing with heaps of action. I thought it would be great fun. I was up for a good old play-fighting and the scripts were terrifically exciting.
Joanne Froggatt
I’m like Robin Hood. I rob the rich to make these projects come alive… not really rob. It’s done with a smile.
Imelda Marcos
Robin Hood is often seen as the hands-on-hips, archetypal, tally-ho hero. But, realistically, the one calling the shots wouldn’t be at the front shouting about it. He’d be the one you don’t expect.
Jonas Armstrong
The idea of a financial transaction tax on Wall Street trades is gaining momentum. I have a bill called – nicknamed the Robin Hood tax also. It’s a bill that taxes stock trades, derivatives and bonds, and would generate in the neighborhood of $300 billion a year.
Keith Ellison
I would rather portray the hero if it’s a really great film. All my favorite fictional film characters are heroes, such as in ‘The Last of the Mohicans’ and ‘Robin Hood.’
Jonathan Jackson
I have tons of rescuing fantasies based on the movies I saw when I was growing up. I wanted to be Robin Hood and the Three Musketeers and the Scarlet Pimpernel.
Harold Ramis
After high school, I worked as a messenger boy at a local bank. I was miserable. I felt like Robin Hood chained in the Sheriff of Nottingham’s dungeon. As a would-be writer, I thought it was a catastrophe. As a bank employee, I could barely add or subtract and had to count on my fingers.
Lloyd Alexander
That’s it then. Cancel the kitchen scraps for lepers and orphans, no more merciful beheadings, and call off Christmas.
Alan Rickman
John Kerry had a very vivid imagination as a young person. I mean, he actually did go and take his bicycle from Norway to go camp in Sherwood Forest to be around the ghost of Robin Hood.
Douglas Brinkley
I remember my first scene with Alan Rickman, and I was anxious because he is a slight ‘method’ actor; as soon as he is in his cloak, he walks and talks like Snape – it is quite terrifying. But I really wanted to talk to him because ‘Robin Hood’ was one of my favourite films.
Tom Felton
There’s an interesting mix to ‘Robin Hood’ because it’s kind of modern but medieval. There is a blend of adventure with a very modern feel.
Joanne Froggatt
I’m always polite in auditions, but I wasn’t like, ‘Oh, please give me the job,’ for ‘Robin Hood’ because I didn’t think I’d get it. I got told about the audition just a few days before I went to India to film something else. I must have been a bit cocky with it.
Jonas Armstrong
I did quite a lot of fencing when I was a kid, I was a swimmer, and I played a lot of basketball. I was a fencer for Great Britain, but I only did that because I watched Robin Hood, Star Wars, Highlander and The Three Musketeers, and I wanted to emulate Richard Harris and the great British actors that I grew up watching.
Kieran Bew
The kind of fan following that Salman has at the mass level is unparalleled. No one even comes close. So when he plays the Robin Hood or Chulbul Pandey sort of roles, people go crazy.
Boney Kapoor
Plain white T-shirts do it for me every time. You can spend anything from ВЈ3 to ВЈ50 on a T-shirt, but I’ve bought some great ones from H&M, as well as shelling out on Duffer Of St George and a Polish label I discovered while filming ‘Robin Hood’ in Hungary called Scotch And Soda.
Jonas Armstrong
Jesse [James] was known as a kind of Robin Hood character and also it was known that his exploits were somewhat dubious – however, he perpetuated this myth. Our film [The Assassination of Jesse James] really takes place at the end of all that, the last year of his life, at the end of all that celebrity.
Brad Pitt
Like Robin Hood….Not real, but true.
Janette Rallison
When I played Robin Hood, I knew the great role was Alan Rickman’s and it didn’t bother me. I always think that leading actors should be called the best supporting actors.
Kevin Costner
Underneath this little stone
Lies Robert Earl of Huntington;
No other archer was so good –
And people called him Robin Hood.
Such outlaws as he and his men
Will England never see again.
Roger Lancelyn Green
The Border Ballads, for instance, and the Robin Hood Ballads, clearly suppose a state of society which is nothing but a very circumscribed and not very important heroic age.
Lascelles Abercrombie
I was mischievous. I wasn’t bad. I stole food so we could eat. My mother didn’t know. I used to tell her some man gave me $10 to sweep out the yard. I was like Robin Hood. I took from the rich and gave to the poor. Me.
Mr. T
I was very struck by the fact that Robin Hood became increasingly taken over by the middle and upper classes. He starts out a bandit but becomes a fully fledged aristocrat.
David Farr
Bonnie and Clyde were almost like a modern-day Robin Hood, stealing ‘the government’s money.’ I think that’s a bit of why they were glorified.
Lane Garrison
I once heard a wise man say there are no perfect men. Only perfect intentions.
Morgan Freeman
If you outlaw half a million people you make martyrs of them. For example, if you outlaw Robin Hood, it is all very well, but if you outlaw a whole group of people around Robin Hood, then Robin Hood and his merry men become legends.
Baldur von Schirach
I wrote my first play when I was nine, it was about Robin Hood, from Maid Marian’s point of view. I was a feminist from day one.
Carol Drinkwater
Most Robin Hood stories are not very exciting. There are not a lot of surprises.
David Farr
