Liam Gallagher on Brexit: "David Cameron wants his bollocks electrocuted"


Former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher has offered his insight on the Brexit debacle by putting the blame firmly on former Prime Minister David Cameron.

Cameron, former leader of the Conservative party, insisted on instigating the 2016 referendum before immediately resigning upon the result and ultimately shifting responsibility onto the shoulders of Theresa May.

Gallagher, speaking to Q, was asked for his opinion on the current political standoff to which he answered frankly: “I don’t know what Brexit is. Does anyone, really?”

Pushed for a more definitive opinion, Gallagher continued: “All I do know is that David Cameron wants his bollocks fucking electrocuted for bringing it on in the first place. I like going to Europe! I like that freedom.

“I get that everyone is struggling, especially outside of London. But is that to do with Brexit? I don’t know, man. Seems like a load of fucking bollocks to me.”

While Liam and his estranged brother no longer share a relationship, they do share a similar opinion on Britain’s current political crisis. It was only last year when Noel Gallagher took aim at Theresa May and Boris Johnson over what he calls Brexit “lies”.

Gallagher, fresh from performing at the Mercury Prize award where his most recent album was nominated, joined morning Good Morning Britain and couldn’t hold back his political frustration. “They’re still lying to us now! Theresa May, bless her, is lying about the [European Union] deal”, the former Oasis man said.

“And the ‘remoaners’, or whatever they’re called, are lying about what’s going to happen,” he continued before adding: “Then there’s the £350 million from Boris Johnson and all the rest of them.

“They should leave us out of it! Tell us what it is and we’ll get on with it. “
