Noel Gallagher: Jeremy Corbyn is a 'communist'
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn is a “communist”, according to Noel Gallagher.
Mr Corbyn should not feel singled out, however, because the former Oasis star has expressed distaste for politicians in general, describing them as “f***ing idiots”, and “full of s**t”.
Speaking to Paste magazine, the musician, who recently released a new album with his band, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, also said he does not watch the news because it is “f***ing boring”.
Gallagher, who went to Number 10 for Tony Blair’s Cool Britannia reception in 1997, was asked if he had an opinion on Mr Blair’s successor-but-one, and on Donald Trump.
His pithy reply began: “F*** Jeremy Corbyn. He’s a Communist.
“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***ing scary, and that will affect my children.”
On politicians in general, he said: “They’re economists – that’s all they are.
“They’re f***ing full of shit, and I should know, because I’ve known quite a few of them.”
Explaining why he does not watch the news, he said: “So if the world is going to end, I don’t want to know about it. I don’t want to watch the run-up to it.
“If the sky is going to catch fire because some little, fat North Korean idiot flies a rocket into it, let it f***ing end.
“I don’t want to know about it. I’d rather be doing something else.”
Noel’s brother Liam recently suggested he missed being in a band with him, and also missed them just being brothers.
But Noel dismissed the comments as being “for Oasis’ fans’ benefit, that’s what that is”.
He added: “I don’t f***ing buy it, and I don’t care.
“He’s said too much. So I hope he’s having the sh***iest time of his f***ing life.”
