Victoria Beckham backs Remain in EU


Victoria Beckham has put the boot into the Leave campaign by publicly coming out for Remain ahead of the EU referendum.

Leave.EU has repeatedly tried to adopt Victoria as one of its own by quoting her now 20-year-old comments to The Spectator about the European Union.

“It’s been a terrible trick on the British people,” Victoria said at the time.

“The impertinence of the bureaucrats in Brussels. The Euro bureaucrats are destroying every bit of national identity and individuality.

When her fellow Spice Girls Mel B and Emma Bunton tried to stick up for the union, Victoria snapped back: “Do you not care if some bloke in Germany is making decisions for us?”

But that was then.

Just hours after her ex-footballer husband David publicly expressed his support for the Remain camp, Victoria did the same with a tweet linking to the Stronger In website and Instagram post outlining her views.

“In response to the @leave.eu campaign who have today tried to put a spin on quotes made 20 years ago about keeping or losing the pound, I have to say strongly my comments were not about this referendum and should not be misused in this way!” Victoria said.

“I believe in my country, I believe in a future for my children where we are stronger together and I support the #remain campaign. @strongerineurope.”

David had previously said: “We live in a vibrant and connected world where together as a people we are strong.

“For our children and their children we should be facing the problems of the world together and not alone.”
