Shakespeare was a tax-evading food hoarder

leave it to the Brit's, this is propaganda at it's finest!
would Francis Bacon really do such dastardly things?
or is the message to pay your taxes and not stock up on food?
was he a hero or villain?

"As well as writing many of the world’s greatest plays, he was a successful businessman and major landowner in his native Warwickshire who retired an extremely wealthy man.

However, a new study has found that he was repeatedly prosecuted and fined for illegally hoarding food, and threatened with jail for failing to pay his taxes, The Sunday Times reported.'
