Posh slammed suggestions she's a Brexit supporter, pointing out that the quotation obtained by the Leave campaign was 20 years old, and declared her support for Remain.
Victoria Beckham has stamped out claims that she’s a supporter of the campaign for Britain to leave the E.U. ahead of this week’s referendum, coming out as a Remain voter and slamming the idea that she had lent her support for Brexit.
Two months ago, the Leave campaign shared a quote from the former Spice Girl-turned-fashion designer, suggesting that she was a supporter of their movement to make Britain independent from the European Union.
Victoria Beckham is NOT a Leave voter!
“The Euro Bureaucrats are destroying every bit of national identity and individuality. We must keep our national individuality,” the campaign’s official Twitter account posted back on April 9th.
While it’s true she said this, it was a quote lifted from an interview conducted way back in 1996 as the Spice Girls were starting their career. However, after two decades and four children, people understandably change their minds about things they believed when they were callow youths, and Victoria took to Instagram on Tuesday (June 21st) to post the logo of the Remain campaign.
She captioned the picture with the following clarification: “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!”
“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.”
Posh Spice’s objection comes on the same day as her husband David came out in favour of the Remain campaign, with researchers scouring the internet and coming up with the two-month-old tweet as evidence that the Beckham household was at loggerheads over the referendum.
