Former Oasis songwriter Noel Gallagher says those complaining about the result that will see Britain leave the European Union have to get over it after insisting it was a 'legal vote.'
Speaking during a Facebook live chat with the Noisey music channel on Wednesday, November 15, the guitarist discussed Brexit, saying: "F*****g get it done…and let's move on."
His forthright view was quickly seized upon by former UKIP leader Nigel Farage, who responded by sharing a link to Gallagher's comments, writing "I think the correct term here is 'lad'."
In the interview, Gallagher said that while he didn't vote in the EU referendum himself, he agreed more with the Remain camp. The ensuing debate over the issue has, however, clearly annoyed him.
"In England, the Brexit thing, it's like, I can't believe there's so much noise about it. "You know what I mean? It was put to the people as a vote, the people voted. That's democracy. F*****g get over it. I didn't vote because I didn't think we should have been given the vote in the first place because as ordinary members of the public how are you qualified to talk about the break-up of the oldest continent in the f*****g world? Then the people trying to get the vote overturned, they used to call that fascism. But they don't call it fascism any more because they're f*****g 'right on'."
Democracy must win or we become, in effect, a lawless society. It is dangerous for these remoaners to even suggest such a thing.— Nottingham Ex-Labour (@NottinghamExLab) November 16, 2017
The musician — whose hits included 'Don't Look Back in Anger' — said personally, he did not think Britain should have left the European Union especially as the French were going through some dark terror at the time.
Viewers and fans were invited to give their thoughts afterwards on the Noisey Facebook page. Surprisingly, however, Gallagher's political stance failed to attract any comments with the majority more interested in whether he will patch up his on-going feud with brother Liam.
