MACCA SPEAKS OUT OVER WAR IN IRAQ

The star describes the current situation as "very difficult"...

Paul McCartney has spoken out about the war in Iraq.

The Beatles star is reported to have said that the UK government went in “too fast” when Iraq was invaded last year.

According to BBC news, he said: “Maybe our government went in too fast with the Americans. It would have been better if the UN had been together. Now it’s become very bloody with Iraq, it’s very difficult.”

The singer is to headline this year’s Glastonbury Festival on a tour that also visits the Rock In Rio: Lisbon festival this weekend.
