James Blunt, 45, expressed his disdain for the “limbo” Brexit has left the country in as he admitted he will continue to tour the EU despite what happens. Some users have taken to the micro-blogging site to slam the singer after they claimed that, as a multimillionaire, he would never understand the impact Brexit would have on the population. During an interview with The Independent, James spoke candidly about his views on Brexit. The Your Beautiful singer, who reportedly is worth an estimated £13 million, told the publication: “I think it’s pretty much bulls**t. It’s all a political thing. I’m going to carry on touring through Europe whatever happens.
“Rather than having a title on it, my call to arms would be ‘get the f*** on with it’, because our lives aren’t going to change.”
The Goodbye My Lover hitmaker continued: “My tour manager is going to be p***ed off he has to fill in a few more forms, but whatever you do, get on with it, because the limbo is killing us.”
James wouldn’t divulge which way he had voted in the 2016 referendum, saying he “didn’t want to be given that label”.
One person tweeted: “Lucky old James whose life won’t change. S*d the rest of us, eh?”
Another person commented: “James Blunt wants the UK to ‘get the f**k on with Brexit because our lives aren’t going to change. A reminder, James is married to Sofia Wellesley… So yeah, they’ll probably be alright, come what may.”
A third wrote: “Oh look. Another rich guy who won’t be affected in the slightest calling for something that will f**k up the lives of the poor and the vulnerable to be pushed through because he’ll be just fine. Gross.’”
While a fourth person added: “Well James Blunt, my life IS going to change. My husband will lose his contract, our home and life in the city we love. My kids will lose their school and friends, but that’s ok, because it won’t affect you.”
Other fans came to James’ defence, as one person tweeted: “Hating on James blunt because he accepts democracy. Leave won. End of debate. #jamesblunt #brexit.”
Another person commented: “The abuse that #jamesblunt is getting from remainers for voicing his opinion on #Brexit sums up the whole problem regarding the EU vote – He’s entitled to an opinion – unfortunately if it doesn’t match the ‘48’ opinion you’re torn to shreds. Politics is a hostile landscape now.”
While a third person added: “Well said James Blunt, speaking for the nation.”
His comments comes as Boris Johnson faces a countdown to get his final deal through the House of Commons and deliver Brexit by October 31.
