Noel Gallagher criticises ‘Communist’ Labour leader Ed Miliband

"I'm not sure I can get behind any of them at the minute," says Gallagher ahead of 2015 election

Noel Gallagher has confirmed that he won’t be voting in the General Election as he will be abroad on May 7, but says he wouldn’t want to vote for any of the major parties as they stand.

Appearing on Channel 4 show Chatty Man last night (May 1), Gallagher was quizzed on his political beliefs in the run up to this year’s election. With the public set to go to the polls on Thursday, Gallagher revealed that an administratuive error has left him unable to vote by post and that he won’t be able to vote in person as he’s on tour in America.

“I’m not sure I can get behind any of them at the minute,” Digital Spy quotes Gallagher as saying. “The fact that Cameron didn’t turn up for the debate is a disgrace. I think that Miliband, if he gets in, is just going to fail us.”


Carr is then reported to have replied, “Give him a bloody chance. Look at his little face, how can you say that?” to which Gallagher said “Because he is a fucking communist.”

Moving onto the other parties contesting the election, Gallagher insulted Scottish National Party leader Nicola Sturgeon. “The other unpleasant little woman from over the border. Cheap shoes… and then there’s the Greens – whatever. And the other mob… 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.”

15 Reasons Why Oasis’ ‘Definitely Maybe’ Is Definitely Amazing

Last month, reports emerged that Noel and his brother Liam have reached a ‘gentleman’s agreement’ to reform the Britpop outfit.

While Noel had previously not addressed the rumours, Liam Gallagher decided to offer a no comment statement on the matter.


Oasis acrimoniously split in 2009 with Noel citing an inability to work with his brother as the key reason. There has, however, seemingly been a thawing in the pair’s relationship lately. Last month saw Liam taking to Twitter to post a photo of himself holding a backstage pass to one of Noel’s gigs, who in turn has publically encouraged his younger sibling to record a solo album.
