Frontman also attacks UK immigration policy
The singer weighed in on recent accusations that the switch was made so they could enjoy tax breaks.
“I find it very interesting that people who spout socialism don’t want to pay for a socialist state,” he told The Daily Star.
Daltrey also attacked the coalition government’s immigration policy and previous Labour governments over the issue.
He claims immigrants who fail to pay taxes in Britain have “undercut” the country’s working class.
“They don’t realise how hard the average man has to work to pay those taxes,” he said. “I don’t see anybody in the Government with a pair of balls. They’re so spineless. Nobody is in charge and nobody wants to accept responsibility.”
