Brexit backing Beatle Ringo Starr tells Remoaners ‘the people voted – GET ON WITH IT’

The world famous Beatle drummer hit out at MPs who could not accept the result of the EU referendum vote, telling them to “get on with it”.

It comes as Theresa May battles in the Commons to pass key legislation to allow the nation to smoothly evacuate the 27 nation superstate.

Speaking on Newsnight, Ringo Starr said: “The people voted and, you know, they have to get on with it.

“Suddenly, it’s like, ‘oh well, we don’t like that vote’.

“And I’m like, ‘What do you mean you don’t like that vote?’

“You had the vote, this is what won, let’s get on with it.”

The Liverpudlian megastar currently lives in the US and did not cast a ballot in the EU referendum – but has admitted he would have voted to leave if he was given the chance.

When questioned, he said: “Well because I think it’s a great move.

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

Other Beatles were less keen to back the Leave vote – with bassist Paul McCartney admitting last year he was “so confused” he could not post his ballot.

He said: “I think like a lot of people, I was very confused.

“I was actually doing concerts and I physically couldn’t get to it.

“But even if I had have been able to, I was so confused.

“You were hearing what seemed to be good arguments on both sides.”

His comments come after Theresa May shut down a Lib Dem MP railing against Brexit in a heated exchange during Wednesday’s Prime Minister’s Questions.

The Prime Minister told Layla Moran to “think again” after she claimed industries in her constituency were “set to shrink” as a result of the EU divorce – and called for a second referendum.

Here is a summary of the UK’s main proposals for Brexit

Ms Moran said: “Mr Speaker, Oxford West and Abingdon has a vibrant local economy but is reliant on the university, science and car industries.

“It is set to shrink if we leave the single market and the customs union, risking thousands of local jobs.”

The chamber erupted with jeers as she continued: “Isn’t it time the Prime Minister was frank with people about the dangers of leaving and allowed them a say when we finally know the full facts?”

Mrs May then scolded the politician and suggested she did not have the “right view” of what would happen in the UK after Brexit.

She replied: “I have to say to the honourable lady that her view of what is going to happen when we leave the European Union is not the right one.

“And if she is telling her constituents that then she needs to think again.

“She needs to work with the Government to ensure we get the deal as we leave the European Union that gives us access to the single market, that enables us not just to have that access but to do trade deals around the world and bring prosperity and jobs to the UK.”
