Ringo Starr Backs Brexit

"Get on with it!" urges the Beatles drummer...

The Beatles drummer Ringo Starr has revealed he would have voted for Brexit if he had the opportunity.

The songwriter spoke to Newsnight about new album 'Give More Love', but the conversation naturally returned to the political situation in his native land.

Revealing that he couldn't vote in the recent referendum, the drummer spoke favourably about Brexit and told politicians to "get on with it".

"I would have voted for Brexit. Yeah, I would have voted to get out", he confirmed, before adding: "But don't tell Bob Geldof!"

"I think, you know, to be in control of your own country is a good move".
