Noel Gallagher has lashed out at the Labour Party

“I should start a new party called the After Show Party, it would be great.”

Noel Gallagher has launched a scathing attack on the Labour Party. Branding the party a “f*****g disgrace”, the rocker accused its politicians of “betraying the working classes” by failing to stop Boris Johnson winning the 2019 election.

The Oasis star, 54, who was once a staunch supporter of Tony Blair, said he was so fed-up with the party that he wouldn’t be voting at the next election.

“I f***ing hate the Labour Party, they’re a f***ing disgrace,” he ranted.

“They’ve betrayed the working classes, they’ve betrayed ordinary people and they’ve allowed this shower to run the country for however long they’ve f***ing run the country.

“The modern Labour Party is middle-class ****s who f***ing hate the working class, they hate them, it’s as simple as that. I haven’t voted for years.”

Noel, who grew up in Burnage – a predominantly working class Manchester suburb – took aim at Keir Starmer’s party in an interview on Matt Morgan’s podcast.

So disillusioned with British politics has the rockstar become that he even joked about making a career change and starting his own party.

He added: “Anyone in their right mind who does take part in that whole circus is a f***ing idiot.

“I should start a new party called the After Show Party, it would be great.”

Back in 1997, Noel and his brother Liam were invited to Downing Street by Tony Blair after Labour’s landslide general election victory. The images from that night of politicians and rockstars mingling became symbolic of the “Cool Britannia” era.

The invite followed Noel’s shout-out to the then Labour leader at the Brit Awards two months previously when he told the crowd that Blair “was giving a little hope to young people in this country.”

But it seems a decade of Tory rule has left the guitarist frustrated with his former party. On Boris Johnson he said: “He is the symbol of how f***ing disgraceful the Labour Party are. 

“If that man and this Conservative party won a landslide against the Labour Party then what are we saying about the f***ing Labour Party. A f***ing disgrace.”
