THE SPICE Girls caused a huge divide among their own fanbase yesterday after they urged Brits to back the hugely unpopular Prime Minister, Theresa May.
They went full PC and revealed that it’s no longer “Girl Power” but “People Power” but then angered their legion of Gay fans – by backing the PM who is seen as ‘Anti-Gay’ among some LGBT activists.
In a series of interviews, the iconic 90s band revealed to The Sun that “It’s people power.” now and said “We’re about equality and bringing everyone together,”
The pro-Tory message should come as no surprise though, as in 1996 they declared Margaret Thatcher to have been the original Spice Girl and, according to reports, in that same year, Victoria ‘Posh’ Beckham, now 44, said the EU had been a “terrible trick on the British people”, with Euro bureaucrats “destroying every bit of national identity and individuality”.
When it comes to Brexit today, the group simply call on the country to unite, with Geri saying “the outcome is the outcome”
She told The Sun: “The most important thing is let’s stop the divisiveness, come together.
“I can honestly say, what I’m so proud about us lot, we have different views, we do argue.”
Emma, 42, said: “But we respect our differences and I think that’s what’s important.”
“Yeah,” Geri said. “And we’re just managing to work through those differences and that is the important thing.
Ginger Spice then revealed that she backed Prime Minister Theresa May adding that she did not have an “easy position”.
She told The Sun: “Britain, come together whatever it is, come together and sort our solutions out together, that’s the most important thing.
“We don’t have to agree on politics, it’s bigger than that. You can just support a woman doing the best she can and that’s it.”
They saw an immediate backlash on Twitter with users hitting out at the band, one fan said:
Apparently theSpice Girls feel we should ‘back Theresa May’ & that she’s doing ‘the best she can’. That’s great, but why would i give a nats piss what the fucking Spice Girls think about Theresa May?

And they even caused a furore among their legions of Gay fans – as Anti-Gay May has repeatedly voted against the pro-LGBT legislation.

The Spice Girls saying we should support Theresa May for “doing the best that she can” is such an awful take
“The best that she can” is ripping country to shreds. It’s not to be celebrated.

The news came after Posh hit back at Mel B’s claim that she will be joining the Spice Girls on stage at Wembley stadium.
Victoria denied that she will have any role in the Spice Girls reunion – despite what her former bandmate said yesterday.
Reps for Victoria said that the fashion designer stands by the statement that she released earlier this week, adding that she won’t be taking part in the tour on any date.
They told The Sun: “Victoria made a statement three days ago clearly confirming she would not be joining the girls on tour.
“That fact remains the same, she is not taking part in the tour. Not on any date.”
What do you think?
