Earlier this year, Liam Gallagher was on the warpath, verbally attacking everything from James Corden to the sea. The former Oasis frontman was, of course, promoting an album.

With his latest album Who Built the Moon? having just reached record stores, brother Noel has begun using the same promotional tactic, having already told remainers to “'f**king get over Brexit”.

During an interview with Paste, Noel was asked about his political views, telling the publication: “F**k Jeremy Corbyn. He’s a Communist.”

The musician added: “And Trump’s a…a…I’m not even going to name him. But they don’t affect my life. Well, Donald Trump, maybe, because his views on the environment are pretty f**king scary, and that will affect my children.

“But politicians? They’re f**king idiots. They’re economists—that’s all they are. They’re f**king full of shit, and I should know because I’ve known quite a few of them.”

Noel has previously spoken unfavourably about the Leader of the Labour Party, previously calling him a communist and adding: “The Tories don’t care about the vulnerable, and the communists don’t care about the aspirational.”

Earlier this month, Noel commented on Brexit, saying: “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**king get over it.”
