Pop lad chips in on po­lit­i­cal de­bate

Daily Star - - NEWS - By JACK HARD­WICK [email protected]

ROB­BIE Wil­liams has waded into the seem­ingly never-end­ing row over Brexit.

The singer had pre­vi­ously kept out of the po­lit­i­cal dis­pute en­gulf­ing the UK in fear he would get “told off” by his show­biz team.

How­ever, Rob­bie said he does not sup­port a so-called Peo­ple’s Vote on stay­ing in the EU de­spite think­ing the UK leav­ing the bloc is “s**t”.

Rob­bie, 44, said: “We had a vote and they said we wanted to leave, so if there is an­other vote and they go: ‘Well ac­tu­ally, let’s have an­other go’ – that’s not democ­racy is it?”

Wary of the pub­lic re­ac­tion to a pop star talk­ing pol­i­tics, the Take That singer added in an In­sta­gram Live chat with fans: “I’m not say­ing which way I would have voted, if I voted.”

But it didn’t take long for his true feel­ings to come through.

Read­ing out a mes­sage from a fan on a now-deleted In­sta­gram live ses­sion, Rob­bie con­tin­ued: “I don’t want Eng­land to be out of Europe that’s s**t’. Nei­ther do I but don’t tell any­one, I’ll get in trou­ble for that.

“But I know very lit­tle about lots of things... I know very lit­tle about most things and it is so con­fus­ing.”

Rob­bie re­cently landed him­self in hot wa­ter af­ter the Daily Star un­cov­ered video of him en­cour­ag­ing fans to take co­caine.

In the clip, he could be seen talk­ing to two men from Not­ting­ham about the drug.

Stroking his nose, the multi BRIT award-win­ner con­tin­ued: “Oh I see... not for a long, long time. It has been a... look, I am 44 and when you get to 44 the heart can’t keep up with that s**t. I have got kids.”

He later added: “Do you drink Dram­buie? I mean not that you would ever take ec­stasy, but it goes very well with ec­stasy... not that you ever would.”

ROB­BIE Wil­liams has waded into the never-end­ing Brexit row.

Come on Rob­bie – we thought your job was to en­ter­tain!
