Former Beatles drummer Ringo Starr has praised Britain's decision to leave the European Union, saying Brexit will allow the UK to get back on its "own feet." The 75-year-old musician said he was a "huge fan" of the EU when it started but claimed it had failed to turn into a "love fest," reported Daily Mirror.
Reacting to the referendum result, Mr Starr said, "I think it's good. Get back on our own feet. I was a huge fan when the EU started. I've lived all over Europe so I thought 'how great'. But it never really got together, I didn't think."
"Maybe in a business way it got together but everyone kept their own flags. It didn't really turn into a love fest," he said.
Mr Starr, who lives in Los Angeles, is just one of a host of celebrities to come out in support of Britain ditching Brussels.
