With Liam Gallagher having stolen the spotlight over the last few weeks — commenting on everything the sea to James Corden — brother Noel has decided to cause some controversy.

Speaking to Noisey, Gallagher commented on the EU referendum vote, calling on those who voted to remain to “f**king get over” the Brexit vote.

“In England, the Brexit thing, it’s like, I can’t believe there’s so much noise about it,” the musician said. “You know what I mean? It was put to the people as a vote. The people voted. That’s democracy. Fucking 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 the fuck are you qualified to talk about the break-up of the oldest continent in the fucking world.”

Gallagher continued: “Then the people trying to get the vote overturned, they used to call that fascism. But they don’t call it fascism anymore because they’re fucking ‘right on’.

“Personally, I don’t think we should have left the [European] Union because I feel right at the time of it happening, we turned our back on the French, who were going through some dark terror shit.

“But it’s happened now. It was a legal vote. Fucking get it done and let’s move on.” Former UKIP leader Nigel Farage responded to Gallagher’s words by calling the former Oasis guitarist a “lad”. The conversation about Brexit begins around the 27:30 mark.

Asked for his thoughts on Brexit earlier this year, Liam Gallagher said: “No thoughts on it, man. I love Europe. I guess the borders have got to be tightened but all that stuff about going ‘this is my country’, I don’t get that.

“We all live under one sky. I certainly don’t sit there and go ‘this is my f***in’ England, stay out’, but I think we should definitely keep an eye on who’s coming in and out of the country”.

“That just makes common sense because you don’t want a load of loony c*** coming in. But good people should be allowed to move and groove wherever they want”.
