World famous pop star, Elton John, has made some very public comments over his opinion on Brexit.
On Wednesday, while performing in Verona, he said: “I’m ashamed of my country for what it has done. It’s torn people apart … I am sick to death of politicians, especially British politicians. I am sick to death of Brexit. I am a European. I am not a stupid, colonial, imperialist English idiot.”
A film about his life is currently in cinemas and
he is also in the middle of a world tour.
This is not the first time he has said what he thinks about Brexit, back in July 2018, he said: “I don’t think people in Britain were told the truth to start with … They were promised something that was completely ridiculous and wasn’t economically viable.” He said the Brexit process was confusing, like “walking through Hampton Court maze blindfolded, being turned around 16 times and trying to find your way out”.
Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
