Paul told The Washington Post that, in the end, he couldn’t decide whether the United Kingdom should stay or go. Sounding more torn about his decision than outspoken, Paul said he couldn’t get to the polls to vote on whether to remain or leave the European Union because of his ongoing tour.
But he said that even if he had been in town, he likely wouldn’t have voted anyway.
“I think like a lot of people, I was very confused,” Paul said monday from a tour stop in Denmark.
“I was actually doing concerts and I physically couldn’t get to it,” he said from his current European tour, which moves to the states next month. (Paul plays a pair of shows at Washington, D.C.’s Verizon Center in August.) “But even if I had have been able to, I was so confused. You were hearing what seemed to be good arguments on both sides.”

The turmoil in England and elsewhere has been well-documented since Britain voted to leave the E.U. by 52-to-48 percent last week. There appears to be a similar split among celebrities: Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger and actor Michael Caine spoke in favor of leaving the E.U.; “Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling and former Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr have criticized the vote and Prime Minister David Cameron. John Oliver also strongly urged his fellow Brits to remain on “Last Week Tonight” as he called England the “birthplace of the Beatles and yet very much the world’s Ringo.”

Despite saying he wouldn’t have voted, “I think I would have come down on the remain side because people like the Governor of the Bank of England, a lot of financial experts, were saying that,” Paul said. “I think the strongest argument that I heard, a friend of mine who was a political journalist said, [is that people] shouldn’t forget this is the longest sustained peace in Europe.”

Julia Baird, John Lennon’s sister, is this week leading a delegation of key partners from Liverpool’s culture and tourism sector as they embark on a trip to Tokyo in a bid to help strengthen the city’s links with Asia.

Julia and delegates from The Beatles Story, The Cavern and Marketing Liverpool flew out on a Turkish Airlines flight from Manchester Airport to Tokyo. Once they arrive, the group will take part in a week-long campaign to promote Liverpool to Japanese tourists.
The trip coincides with the 50th anniversary since The Beatles’ famous tour of Japan.
Travelling on Japan Airlines, The Beatles arrived at Haneda Airport, Tokyo, Japan, at 3.40am on 30th June 1966 to perform five shows at the Nippon Budokan Hall. Judging by fan reactions it's fair to say that by the time The Beatles landed, Beatlemania had truly hit Japan and 50 years on it shows no signs of slowing down.
The visit was not without controversy and protest since Budokan was considered a national shrine to Japan's war casualties and many found the idea of a rock group performing as sacrilege. The band from Liverpool would make history by being the first western rock group to perform there.
Upon landing, The Beatles were met and escorted to the Tokyo Hilton hotel where they would spend the following three nights in the Presidential Suite almost under ‘house arrest’ – leaving only to perform their five shows. They held a press conference from the Hilton hotel and security was on constant high alert.
The first performance took place on 30th June 1966 to an audience of 10,000. The following day The Beatles performed two shows, which were both filmed by Nippon Television. The two shows were edited together and broadcast on NTV Channel 4 on 1st July from 9pm.
During their three nights’ stay at the Tokyo Hilton, The Beatles produced a painting, which became known as ‘Images of A Woman’. Each of the four band members painted their interpretation and collectively they signed the artwork. It is the only known art collaboration by all four Beatles. Consequently it last sold at auction in 2012 for $155,250.
The Beatles left Tokyo on 3rd July 1966. Nobody at the time could have predicted the lasting effect these four lads from Liverpool would have on Japan and in turn the effect Japanese culture would have on The Beatles as well. Not only did John Lennon marry a Japanese woman and spend a lot of time in Japan with his family during the 1970s, but The Beatles careers are full of references to Japanese culture.
Japan was home to an official John Lennon museum which exhibited artefacts from Yoko Ono’s personal collection until its close in 2010. It was also home to a recreation of the world-famous Cavern Club and welcomed dozens of Beatle tribute bands. 

The Japanese love for the Beatles seems never-ending and this is proven time and time again by the sheer number of fans who make the pilgrimage every year from Japan to Liverpool. In the words of John Lennon, from his song “You Are Here” featured on Mind Games, “From Liverpool to Tokyo, what a way to go”.

Julia said: “John often spoke fondly about his time in Japan, it always had a special place in heart. He had a great affinity with the people and places, it almost became a second home. Nowhere is that more evident than in his music.”
Chris Brown, director at Marketing Liverpool, commented: “This is an incredible platform to promote Liverpool as a tourist destination to the Japanese market and strengthen our already existing links with Asia”
Martin King, director at the Beatles Story, said: “The Beatles embraced Asian culture to its full capacity. Their visit to Tokyo almost half a century ago had a lasting impact, both on Japan and the boys alike.
“It is fantastic to get this opportunity, 50 years on, to bring a slice of Liverpool to a place where Beatlemania has never really ended.” 
Tomoko Hisaki from Visit Britain in Tokyo added: “This significant anniversary of The Beatles visiting Japan provides a great opportunity to promote Liverpool as a tourist destination.
“Being able to trace the band’s journey from four young lads to becoming the most influential band in the world will have real appeal to the Japanese market.”
