Never one to shy away from giving his opinion in the bluntest of manners, Noel Gallagher recently sat down with Paste to discuss the current political climate. Long story short: he doesn’t care for it. Shocker.
When asked about current Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn, Noel Gallagher was rather succinct in his reponse: “F**k Jeremy Corbyn. He’s a Communist.” Now while we’ve come to expect direct and unfiltered answers from Noel, this answer does come as a bit of a surprise. Decades previously, Gallagher had been a supporter of Tony Blair when he was heading the Labour Party. However, Noel feels that now the Labour Party is a shell of its former self.
The famous rocker also spoke his mind about the one politician that everyone seems to have an opinion on: Donald Trump. “And Trump’s a…a…I’m not even going to name him. But they don’t affect my life. Well, Donald Trump, maybe, because his views on the environment are pretty f**king scary, and that will affect my children.” This sentiment seems to be echoed by his estranged brother and former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher, who has summarised Trump in a few short words: “He’s a d**k. They’re all d**ks.” Cheers for keeping it real, lads.
When speaking of politics as a whole, Noel makes it very clear that there’s not really one in the lot that he cares for: “But politicians? They’re f**king idiots. They’re economists—that’s all they are. They’re f**king full of s**t, and I should know because I’ve known quite a few of them.” So safe to say if you’re running up on Noel for an autograph, don’t ask him about Brexit or anything – he really doesn’t care for it.
