Mick Jagger takes aim at Brexit Britain on two new tracks

By Alastair Reid

Sir Mick Jagger has taken aim at Brexit Britain in new music released this week, declaring 'England Lost' and singing that the country has 'Gotta Get A Grip'.

The two new tracks give a sneering take on many current hot topics, including corruption, immigration, "fake news", anti-intellectualism and the refugee crisis.

"I went to find England, it wasn't there", he sings on England Lost, adding: "I think I'm losing my imagination, tired of talking about immigration."

Sir Mick, now 74, also hints at fears that Brexit will make the UK a tax haven for the rich, singing: "Lock the shutters, bolt the doors, London's gonna be like Singapore".
