Acting should stick to acting

Is anybody else sick of being dictated to about immigration by “celebrities” or is it just me?

Benedict Cumberbatch, Emma Thompson, Jude Law ... the list goes on and on.

Why do we give these people any credence whatsoever?

Just because they’ve been in a few, what I consider to be, terrible films, their words shouldn’t hold any more weight than mine or anyone else’s.

Cumberbatch fans paid hundreds to see him in Hamlet, only to be harangued for 20 minutes at the end of the performance to give donations for refugees.

The arrogance!

If he was performing in my back garden I’d draw the curtains.

One thing’s for sure though, any so-called refugees who arrive in Britain won’t end up living anywhere near these people in their very comfortable homes.

Do your job, take your wages, keep your gobs shut, and leave the politics to people who live in the real world.
