Rupert Everett vows to leave Britain if Cameron becomes prime minister
Gay actor Rupert Everett has said he will leave the UK if the Tories win the next general election.
Everett, 50, told the Guardian: “I’m not going to stay if David Cameron gets in.”
When asked why he disliked the Conservative Party, he said: “Because they’re posh. I don’t believe them. And I don’t want the country run from yachts.”
The actor, who had a privileged upbringing himself, added that the party has “no perspective on reality”.
On civil partnerships, he commented: “If you want to have a marriage with some bad-tempered cow from Camden Council officiating, then you must have that, and I think it’s nice that you can have it.
“But I liked being a poof when it was illegal, frankly; it gave me a sense of being outside.”
