    Sir Paul McCartney believes the Occupy Wall Street anti-capitalism protests are justified. Maca is pissed about the bank crisis, where taxpayers bailed out the banks while execs took home fat bonuses. He thinks that British banks should return some of the £500 billion UK government rescue package from 2007.

    McCartney told The Times: "When the banks go bust and we bail them out – OK, I can see that. But here's the bit I feel is missing – they didn't pay us back. I think everyone is like, 'Wait a minute – did I miss something?' I am with all those people in that respect. Pay it back."

    What is your take on the Occupy movement? With it? Against it? Could care less?
