Paul McCartney says Brexit referendum a ‘mistake’ and he just wants ‘mess’ over

Sir Paul McCartney has said the Brexit referendum was "probably a mistake" and he just wants the whole issue to be over.

The former Beatle did not vote either way in 2016 because both sides made "crazy promises" and he "didn't see anybody saying anything sensible enough".

Even now, he's given little hint as to which side of the divide he's on.

But either way he's joined the millions of Brits who, whatever their view, are fed up.

He told BBC Newsnight "I don't think anyone quite knows what to do with it".

Sir Paul, 77, added: "I think it's a mess and I will be glad when it's over".

Despite his comments, Sir Paul also said "I think we'll come through it, we always do", saying he remembered rubbish piled in the streets and graves undug in the 1970s.

He said: "What put me off was that I was meeting a lot of older people, kind of pretty much my generation.

"And they were going, 'All right Paul – it's going to be like it was in the old days, we're going to go back'. And it was like, 'Yeah? Oh, I'm not sure about that'.

"And that attitude was very prevalent.
