Emma Thompson says Brexit would be ‘madness’

BERLIN: Actress Emma Thompson said Monday that it would be “madness” for Britain to leave the EU, adding that she felt more European than English.

Thompson, 56, was asked about how she would vote in a referendum on a so-called “Brexit”, after she presented her new Nazi-era thriller “Alone in Berlin”.

“I feel European even though I live in Great Britain, and in Scotland,” she told reporters at the Berlin film festival.
