The Oasis star also expresses his sympathy for British PM Tony Blair...
NOEL GALLAGHER has criticised anti-war protests, branding them a “bloody waste of time.”
Although he admits that he disagrees with the war, he thinks that the UK’s Labour government is tied to the US and so protests are pointless.
In an interview with the Berlin newspaper, Der Tagesspiegel, Gallagher said, “Whenever there is a conservative, bible waving half-wit ruling in the White House – whether it’s Bush, his father or Reagan – there is war.”
He added, “Protests are a bloody waste of time, the war will go ahead anyway.”
Gallagher is currently touring Germany with Oasis, and expressed his sympathy for Tony Blair, saying, “Whoever is the British Prime Minister is tied to America. It’s been that way since the Second World War, and even Tony Blair can’t change that.
“Politics is like football for me. Labour is my team and even if you don’t like a striker you don’t give up supporting the whole team… Labour is the lesser of two evils. What else should we have? Anarchy? Someone has to be responsible.”
He then went on to criticise the British nation, saying, “We are a nation of moaning sissies, regardless of who governs. The British get on my nerves. They moan about the weather, about the French, about the Germans. They moan about cricket, football – they should just keep their mouths shut.”
Gallagher also added that if he ever wrote an autobiography, it would be called > ‘Kettle, Cigarettes, Guitar, Television’ as he claims he doesn’t need anything else in order to live – no drugs, no women and no band.
