In an interview with The Scotsman about Brexit

Then after the Brexit vote I think for sure I’ve changed my tune about it. I think Scotland has been voting for a government that they haven’t been given for years. We’re a very left voting country Scotland and we’ve been under conservative rule for years. I thought that’s it you know. The Scottish people want to stay in the European Union and the English don’t. So I just think, I think probably it’s time. I think probably it’s time.

In an interview with LBC

Now that [the conservatives] kicked out their moderate, decent, responsible element we’re facing something very dark and very scary. [...] Like everyone else I knew nothing about it, no one had any interest with our relationship with the EU 3 years ago. [...] This was a awful awful idea and that the slogans were lies and the EU, imperfect that it is, has been scapegoated for the reason people have pretty crap lives. [...] hat he and his henchmen, the Dominic Cummings of this world, are getting up to, they pirogue parliament illegally, lie to the queen, seem ready to effectively break up the United Kingdom.

Seeing the refugee situation at the moment makes me quite upset, especially everything to do with Brexit, because I feel like young kids from all over the world won’t have the same opportunities that I did.

In an interview with CBC News

It sounds as if I’m not caring about the misery, and absurdity, vulgarity, the gangster criminality and corruption of the Trump regime and all of that is unquestionable, we all know it’s true and people who don’t are being blind and foolish. [...] They used to say of Hitler that he was the most photographed man in history, and I would say Trump is the most talked about man in history. [...] If I count myself as vaguely leftist which I do. [...] I don’t see the rise of Trump or the rise of Brexit in Britain, I don’t see them as a triumph of the right, I see them as a failure of the left. [...] One of the remarkable things about the British royal family is it’s adaptability, it’s ability to survive, and although it’s preposterous it works terribly well.

In an interview with Q Magazine, talking about Brexit

See, that’s the thing. I don’t get involved in politics. But I will say one thing: I was born a European and I f*****g love being a European. You can probably guess my answer from that.

In an interview with The Times

Honestly, I’m probably going to vote for whoever is against Brexit.[…] I’m not educated enough on the subject to really go toe-to-toe with someone about it, but disregarding the economic stuff and all of that, I think what it symbolizes is the opposite of the world I would like to be in. I think the world should be more about being together and being better together and joining together, and I think it’s the opposite of that.
