"The people voted and, you know, they have to get on with it," Ringo says
Ringo Starr has explained why he is in favour of Brexit.
The former Beatles drummer previously said he made the decision to vote leave in last yearâs EU referendum because the EU was a âshamblesâ. Now, speaking on BBCâsÂ Newsnight, Starr urged the British government to âget on withâ Brexit negotiations.
âThe people voted and, you know, they have to get on with it,â Ringo said. âSuddenly, itâs like, âOh, well, we donât like that vote. What do you mean you donât like that vote? You had the vote, this is what won, letâs get on with it.â
Reiterating again how he agreed with Brexit, Starr added: âBut donât tell Bob Geldof.â He also said: âI think itâs a great move. I think, you know, to be in control of your country is a good move.â

Paul McCartney, meanwhile, previously admitted that he didnât vote in the EU referendum because he was touring at the time. However, he said he would have leaned towards voting remain, telling theÂ Washington Post: âI think I would have come down on the remain side because people like the Governor of the Bank of England, a lot of financial experts, were saying that.â
