British singer Elton John says that he is ashamed of the UK over its voting for and handling of Brexit.
While performing on Wednesday in Verona on his last ever world tour, Farewell Yellow Brick Road, 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.”
Sir Elton Hercules John CBE the English singer, songwriter, pianist, and composer has previously expressed his dismay over Brexit.
It was earlier in July 2018, while talking about Brexit 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 also added that the Brexit process was confusing, like “walking through Hampton Court maze blindfolded, being turned around 16 times and trying to find your way out”.
The high profile British singer who is busy with the world tour is also preparing to publish his first autobiography, which is expected to come out sometime later this year.
A biopic about Elton’s rise to fame and struggles with substance misuse named Rocketman is currently screening in international cinemas.
An epic musical fantasy about the uncensored human story of Sir Elton John’s breakthrough years has faced some censor issues in Russia which has annoyed the filmmakers and Elton John.
