Mick Jagger: There's No Satisfaction for Britain Long-Term by Remaining in the EU
Good for Mick.
Acknowledging that the British referendum on leaving the EU scheduled for June 23 won’t make a “huge difference” to him personally, Mick Jagger said in an interview with Sky News television that while he sees short-term risks to a so-called Brexit, it could pay off after a couple of decades, reports Bloomberg.
“I think to the country in the short term it will be detrimental if we stay out,” Jagger said. “In the longer term, in a 20-year term, it might turn out to be beneficial.”
With British Prime Minister David Cameron campaigning for in, and several of his own ministers backing an exit, speculation is increasing that a no vote could force the prime minister to step down, notes Bloomberg.
“I wonder if David Cameron, if he was asked today, whether he would actually
want to put this out for a referendum now,” Jagger mused.
Jagger holds a degree in economics from the London School of Economics.
