The Spice Girls encourage UK 'to come together' to sort Brexit out

Friday, November 16, 2018

The Spice Girls want to bring “lightness and joy” and think Britain should come together to sort out Brexit together. 

Mel B, Emma Bunton, Melanie C and Geri Horner will reunite next year for the Spice World 2019 UK Tour, although Victoria Beckham will not join due to other commitments. 

The Spice Girls today voiced their support for Theresa May, who Mel B called a “great dancer.”

Speaking to talkRADIO’s Dan Wootton, Geri Halliwell said: “She’s not in an easy position, can you imagine doing that?

“We just support a woman doing the best she can and that’s it.” 

Geri said the Spice Girls often disagreed but that the 'Spice World philosophy' was to find a solution together. 

She added: “The most important thing is: let's stop the divisiveness, lets come together. 

“We have different views, we do argue, but we respect each other’s differences and that’s what’s important. 

“Just managing to work through those differences is the most important thing.” 


#meToo movement 

The group also acknowledged that their message of equality for everyone was more relevant now in the wake of the #MeToo movement than it had ever been.

Geri said: “We want to move that conversation on, move it forward and actually the last year was very dark but it had to happen.

“Honesty is paramount to healing but then we move into the light.”

They said they hoped their new tour would bring “lightness and joy” and bring people together. 

Geri added: “It’s the philosophy of spice up your life, every boy, every girl, it doesn’t matter what you look like or where you are, everybody’s welcome.”

The group revealed Victoria Beckham gave the tour her blessing, and that they were proud of what she’s achieved. 

“She’s worked very hard and she will always be a Spice Girl,” they said. 

The Spice Girls also revealed their new “Power Up” campaign, which will raise money for women’s charities and give women a voice and confidence to deal with difficult issues.
