‘I don’t think Brexit was a mistake, myself. I’m rather delighted that all these forecasts of doom and destruction have turned out, at this point, not to have been real. I don’t want to be ruled by Brussels bureaucrats who want to create a super state. I was pro-Brexit for that reason. If I had three words to sum up why we had to get out of Europe, they would be: Jean-Claude Juncker. He’s a little jumped up Luxemb****r who’s never really had a proper job.’
SIR MICHAEL CAINE
I voted for Brexit. What it is with me, I’d rather be a poor master than a rich servant. It wasn’t about the racism, immigrants or anything, it was about freedom. Politics is always chaotic. In politics, you’re always going into areas you’ve never been before, so you’re going to get lost and then you’re going to find your way, and then it’ll be all right. Until I was 20 years of age, I thought Luxembourg was a radio station.

‘I think we want our sovereignty and we want to make our own laws. There are too many people coming in and we’re going to sink into the sea with so many people. We give them (EU) £350m a week….think how many schools and hospitals we could fund with that money.’
‘We are getting out, and when the dust settles I think that it’ll be seen that it’s the right thing for this country to have done, that’s for sure. It’s got nothing to do with any of the immigration issues or any of that for me. It was to do with much more. The majority of this country felt that their voices weren’t being heard. It would have been nice to do a deal with Europe but they didn’t want to do a deal, and they sent Cameron back with a bag.’
