“F*** Jeremy Corbyn. He’s a Communist,” the former Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher has said, in an interview slamming UK politicians as “f***ing idiots”, and “full of sh**”.
The High Flying Birds frontman — who earlier this month told Remainers to “f***ing get over” the Brexit vote — made the remarks when asked for his thoughts on the Labour leader in an interview with Paste magazine.
Gallagher was famously invited to Downing Street in 1997 by Corbyn’s predecessor, the then-Prime Minister Tony Blair, as part of the former Labour leader’s cultural revolution which sought to part Britain from its heritage in the public mind and reimagine the nation as ‘Cool Britannia’.
Prompted to give his opinion on Donald J. Trump, the 50-year-old said: “He’s a… a… I’m not even going to name him,” but stated that neither the U.S. president nor Corbyn “affect [his] life”.
“Well, Donald Trump maybe because his views on the environment are pretty f***ing scary, and that will affect my children,” he told the online magazine, before going on to dismiss all politicians as “f****** idiots”.
“They’re economists – that’s all they are,” said Gallagher. “They’re f****** full of shit, and I should know, because I’ve known quite a few of them.”

The Britpop pioneer was hailed as a “lad” by Brexit leader and former UKIP frontman Nigel Farage earlier this month, when the musician said Brexit “was a legal vote”, adding: “F***ing get it done and let’s move on.
“In England, the Brexit thing, it’s like, I can’t believe there’s so much noise about it,” the musician said, in a Facebook Live interview with Vice magazine’s Noisey music channel.
“You know what I mean? It was put to the people as a vote. The people voted. That’s democracy. F****** get over it,” he said.
Revealing that, while he sided with Europhiles during the referendum, though didn’t go to the polls himself — believing the public were not “qualified” to be given a vote on the issue — Gallagher attacked Remainers’ assumption that they are on the right side of history regarding the issue.
“The people trying to get the vote overturned, they used to call that fascism. But they don’t call it fascism anymore because they’re f****** ‘right on’.
“I don’t think we should have left the [European] Union because I feel right at the time of it happening, we turned our back on the French, who were going through some dark terror s***”, the rock star continued.
“But it’s happened now. It was a legal vote. F****** get it done and let’s move on.”
