Beatles Drummer Ringo Starr Says He Would Have Voted for Brexit

In a BBC Newsnight interview, Ringo Starr said he would have voted for Britain to leave the European Union—if he had voted at all. The Beatles drummer said the British government needed to “get on with it” in the wake of the June 2016 vote and accept that “this is what won.” He jokingly added, “Yes, I would have voted for Brexit, I would have voted to get out—but don’t tell Bob Geldof!” The rock singer and humanitarian was fervently in favor of remaining in the EU. Starr claims that to be in control of your own country is a “good move.”
