Jarvis Cocker has said he thinks Britain needs a Conservative government.

The former Pulp frontman revealed that he has become disillusioned with Gordon Brown and the Labour party in general in an interview with GQ.

"I think his [Gordon Brown's] behaviour just makes a mockery of the whole system," Cocker is quoted as saying in the interview.

"A Conservative government is necessary. There is no credible alternative. You can sense an era passing."

However speaking to NME.COM Cocker explained that he was not supporting David Cameron or his party.

"In no way am I supporting or suggesting that a Conservative government is a good thing, far from it," he declared. "Rather, what I intended to get across was in the absence of any real alternative a Conservative government at the moment seems unfortunately seems inevitable."
