Ed Miliband’s campaign took another bashing last night when former Oasis front man and New Labour supporter Noel Gallagher called him a “f***ing communist”.
In an interview with Alan Carr on his ‘Chatty Man’ programme Gallagher, said he hadn’t fallen out of love with Tony Blair after being photographed with him in the 1990s for ‘Cool Britannia’ but said he was “not sure he could get behind” any politicians at this election, the Express reports.
He said it was a “disgrace” that David Cameron didn’t turn up for the leaders’ debates and said that if Miliband gets in “it is just going to fail us.”
When asked if he was into politics, the Oasis hitmaker admitted: “Not this time around. I’m not sure I can get behind any of them at the minute.
“I’m not going to vote this time because I missed my postal vote and I’m going to America in the morning. I would have voted for the most ludicrous thing – the Monster Raving Loony Party or something,” he told the comedian.
Carr urged him to give Mr Miliband a “bloody chance” saying: “Look at his little face, how can you say that?” to which the guitarist replied, “because he’s a f***ing communist”.
And he described SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon as “the other unpleasant little woman from over the border” with “cheap shoes”.
Taking a swipe at all of the parties, added: “When politicians get in, nothing really changes. If no one voted, and I’m not saying that no one should vote, but if nobody voted and you wake up the next day and no one gets voted in, we’re still going to go to work in the morning.
“Life’s not going to end.”
He seemed to forget that in the struggle for universal suffrage, people did die including Emily Wilding Davidson who threw herself in front of the King’s horse at the Derby in 1913.
He is the latest celebrity to publicly speak out against Mr Miliband, following his on air bashing by Myleen Klass over the mansion tax when she pointed out it was unfair for Londoners and people in the South East. And in March, life long supporter Cheryl Fernande-Versini said she may not be voting for the party because the tax on houses over £2 million would “f** her over.”
She she she feels a greater responsibility to understand politics because she pays a “f—ing lot of tax”.
