"Our lives aren’t going to change..."

James Blunt has given some controversial views on Brexit in a new interview.

The issue continues to polarise British politics, with Boris Johnson's latest efforts at securing a deal being waylaid by parliament.

Tempers are fraught on both sides, and it's become a major talking point in just about every cultural conversation.

Chatting to the Independent, James Blunt was asked his opinion, and he had a few choice words for the political classes, saying: “Get the fuck on with Brexit, because our lives aren’t going to change.”

“I think it’s pretty much bullshit. It’s all a political thing,” he said. “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 fuck on with it’, because our lives aren’t going to change.”

The songwriter added: “My tour manager is going to be pissed 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 Blunt will release his new album 'Once Upon A Mind' on October 25th.
