Sir Ringo Starr said he was “sure Boris Johnson will get another job” after the Prime Minister resigned on Tuesday.
culminating in an event in Los Angeles to mark his 82nd birthday, the former Beatles drummer said he would not give a detailed opinion on Mr Johnson or the tumultuous political situation in England, but wish him all the best.
It happened when the Tory leader stepped down from the top job, but not before the “eccentric” decision by colleagues and Cabinet MPs to force him out of leadership.
Mr Johnson has said he intends to remain in office until his successor is elected, a process that could take months, prompting a backlash from party members and political opponents over the effort. his efforts to “stick” at number 10 until the fall.
Asked about a controversial politician’s decision to resign, he told the PA news agency: “I don’t say anything about Boris Johnson.
“God bless him and I’m sure he’ll get another job.”
The world-renowned musician also admitted that gun violence and hatred “in any country” around the world had “taken him down”.
“We are here to (spread peace and love)… and I can only do this,” he said, giving his signature peace sign.
“I can’t force anyone to go ‘peace and love’ but it is beginning.”
Back in 2017, Sir Ringo weighed in on the Brexit debate, saying “people voted and they have to get on with it”.
