Former Oasis musician Noel Gallagher has a reputation for being difficult (that’s being kind). And I can’t say I have paid much attention to his opinions…until now.
In an interview with the Manchester Evening News, he expressed some truths, in his own, indomitable style.
“We’re living in strange times, aren’t we, where people’s beliefs are so opposing… It used to be people who were right-wing who were violent, protesting violently.
“Now you see people who are left-wing violently protesting and lobbing milkshakes – where did the milkshakes come from? It’s f***ing funny as f*** – over each other.”
“I hate the Labour party. I have f***ing got no time for them anymore,” he says, citing the allegations of antisemitism that have blighted the party.
He’s previously said he’d rather reform Oasis than see ‘lunatic’ Jeremy Corbyn elected. Today his words are a little more colourful.
“F***ng student debater, f***ing captain fishy craggy old f***ing donkey, f*** off,” he says of the Labour leader, describing shadow home secretary Diane Abbott as ‘the face of f***ing buffoonery’ in the same breath.
Tell us how you really feel, Noel!
