'I am sick to death of Brexit., I'm ashamed of my country' - Elton John

 'I am sick to death of Brexit... I'm ashamed of my country' -  Elton John

The 72-year-old Crocodile Rock performer made the outburst while performing in Verona on the Italian leg of his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour.


In between songs the flamboyant multi-millionaire singer  and pianist told the audience: 'I'm ashamed of my country for what it has done. It's torn people apart.' His outburst came as the country continued to be riven by division on Brexit. A survey of how Britons might vote in a general election was set to show the main political parties in joint third place - behind the pro-Remain Lib Dems and Nigel Farage's  Brexit Party.

In highly critical comments on the Brexit process, he described progress on leaving the EU as 'walking through Hampton Court maze blind-folded, being turned around 16 times and trying to find your way out'.

In an interview with Channel 4 News, he said: 'I don't think people in Britain were told the truth to start with.

'I don't think they knew exactly what they were voting for.

'They were promised something that was completely ridiculous and wasn't economically viable.

'And then it's got so complicated now I just don't know what's going on.'

He continued: 'There's a new cereal called Brexit. You eat it and you throw up afterwards.'
