While Elton John is overseeing the global rollout of his bio-pic Rocketman, he isn't too busy to talk politics.
During Wednesday's show in Verona, Italy, Sir Elton told the crowd he's "ashamed of my country for what it has done. It’s torn people apart." Touching on Britain's painful pending exit from the European Union, he added, "I’m 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.”
Elton has discussed the crisis over Brexit before. Last year, The Guardian quoted him saying, “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." (NME)
