Rod Stewart calls for Tories to 'step down' and give Labour 'a go' in resurfaced clip


Rod Stewart calls for Tories to ‘step down’ and give Labour ‘a go’ in resurfaced clip

Long-time Tory supporter Rod Stewart says the government should “stand down” and “give the Labour party a go” in a resurfaced clip.

The singer recently hit out at the Conservatives. In an interview with The Times on Friday (9 February), he called Boris Johnson a “lying f***ing public schoolboy” and called for the Tories to be booted out of No10.

In a resurfaced clip from an interview with Sky News in January 2023, the 79-year-old said that while he has “been a Tory for a long time” the government should “stand down now and give the Labour Party a go”.

“In all my years in this country I’ve never seen it so bad... change the bloody government,” he said.
