Sir Michael Caine calls on UK youth to restore the 'GOOD old days' of 1960s after Brexit

The 84-year-old actor said he has faith the UK will thrive outside the European Union and pointed to the country’s success across the globe to prove his point.

He said: “This is why I am a Brexiteer.

“I remember the entrepreneurial spirit we had in the 1960s before we joined the EU.

“That entrepreneurial spirit is still there, we see it with the young generation and the internet, which is global.

“British culture is still selling internationally.

“It is incredible what we do on this island.

“We always denigrate ourselves, yet we produce some of the most brilliant people in the world.”

From cultural icons such as Sir Paul McCartney to the inventor of the world wide web, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, Sir Michael believes the UK still dominates on the international stage.

He argues bureaucrats in the EU have been stifling British talent over the past 40 years and that Brexit will give a fresh boom to the UK.

In a furious attack on unelected officials in Brussels, the actor accused Eurocrats of undermining UK democracy.

He said: “Jean-Claude Juncker, the President of the EU, used to be Prime Minister of Luxembourg.

“Until I was 20 I thought Luxembourg was a radio station.

“Now its ex-PM is running my country.

“So I want Brexit.”

In a rallying call for young people to use their talents after Brexit, the Italian Job star added: “The thing about the younger generation now is they have the internet.

“They are much more knowledgeable than we are.”
