Noel Gallagher: ‘I don’t think we should be given a vote in the EU referendum’

The star also said he might be too "busy" to vote tomorrow (June 23)

Noel Gallagher has said he doesn’t think the British public should get a vote in tomorrow’s (June 23) EU referendum.

In a new interview, the musician criticised the government for not doing “what we pay you to do” and said he may be too “busy” to vote.

Speaking to CBC, Gallagher said: “I like the fact that it sounds like a cereal; a bowl of Brexit! I’ll decide to vote on the morning. I might be busy.”

He continued: “Do I think we should leave? I don’t think we should be given a vote. I see politicians on TV every night telling us that this is a fucking momentous decision that could fucking change Britain forever and blah, blah, blah.

“It’s like, okay, why don’t you fucking do what we pay you to do which is run the fucking country and make your fucking mind up?

“What are you asking the people for? 99 per cent of the people are thick as pig shit.” 

He also questioned why UK citizens are being given a say in whether the country stays in the EU or not, comparing the situation to the war on Iraq. “They [politicians] didn’t fucking ask us for a referendum when they were going off to war, did they?” he said. “No, fucking assholes.”
