Noel Gallagher’s four-letter rant at Tories for Brexit ‘disaster’
Rocker Noel Gallagher launched an expletive-laden defence of young people growing up post-Brexit raging: “There’s no f****** eggs in the supermarket.”
Gallagher, 55, reflected on his childhood in Manchester, arguing that former band Oasis wouldn’t exist in the current social and political climate.
Writing for The Big Issue’s Letter to my Younger Self feature, the High Flying Birds singer-songwriter said: “I feel sorry for young people growing up in this country now, Brexit has been a f****** absolute unmitigated disaster.
“And it will be a living nightmare until some politician has the balls to put a referendum in a manifesto and run on it and go back into the EU. Nothing works in this country anymore. Politics doesn’t work. Social Services doesn’t work.
“Politics has come to a f****** dead end. I don’t understand what any of them stand for any more.
“The Tories are going to run this country into the ground and then pass it over to Labour and say f****** good luck with that.”
Earlier this year, Gallagher has said “it’s human to help your children” amid the recent “nepo baby” debate.
Discourse surrounding so-called “nepotism babies” – public figures who are believed to have established their success off of the careers of their famous parents – has sparked backlash from a number of stars including Gallagher’s daughter Anais and Lily Allen.
Speaking to the Radio X Evening Show with Dan O’Connell, Gallagher weighed in to defend 22-year-old Anais, who he shares with his former wife Meg Matthews.
“I’ve never pushed her in any particular direction,” he said.
“She got into photography and went to university and all that kind of thing and did great, and when I was making this record, I said why don’t you get a video camera come and film me making the record?
“Only because she’s good at what she does, her photographs are really, really good and if she was terrible, I wouldn’t be doing it for the sake of it, because I think if you’re knowingly just giving your kids something to do and they’re not really good at it, I don’t think that’s very healthy, but she wants to be a really good photographer, although she never stops talking.
“The amount of times that we were in the studio and I was like, ‘just give us a minute mate, will you just pipe down at the back.’ But the whole nepotism thing, I mean it’s human nature to help your children out.”
In November last year, Anais responded to being branded a “nepo baby”, telling the Daily Mail: “I would be tone deaf if I didn’t admit how privileged my life is.”
She added: “I’m really, really, extremely grateful for the situation my parents have been able to give me, and I’ll be grateful until the day I die.”
Gallagher also went on to address his two sons, Donovan and Sonny, adding: “But like I said, they’ve got to be good at it.
“My two lads for example, if I could get them to work for me, where they would just walk around and scratch their bollocks all day, then they’ve got a long meaningful career ahead of them.”
