In an all-around bizarre situation, Ringo Starr used his 77th birthday event as a platform to speak out on the shit show that is Brexit. The event, which took place in Hollywood, was surrounded by an eclectic group of celebrities including David Lynch, the director of Twin Peaks and Guitarist Joe Walsh.
In a speech during the festivities, he said when being asked about his preference between Corbyn and May in regards to Brexit negotiations “I’m not political, but it’s right now Theresa May in charge so let’s hope it’s going to be her,” he said.
“She’s going with the wishes of the British people, which is Brexit, and they had a vote and they said, ‘Okay let’s leave’, and that’s what she’s trying to carry on.”
Ringo then went on to talk about how he was a fan of Water Aid because ‘it’s not all bombs and guns’. After imparting his political gems upon the world, he went back to what I’d argue was the whole point of this whole farce, plugging his new album Give More Love available in-store September 15th.
