Noel Gallagher has hit out at the Labour Party, saying they are “a ******* disgrace” who have “betrayed the working classes.”

The former Oasis rocker has a lifelong association with the Party, having been a big supporter of Tony Blair’s New Labour, but has suggested he will no longer vote for them – and would rather launch his own political party.

Gallagher grew up in Manchester during Margaret Thatcher’s reign as prime minister, and is now worth an estimated £50 million following his successful career as part of Oasis, as well as his solo work.

Speaking to The Matt Morgan Podcast, Noel said: “'I ******* hate the Labour Party, they're a ******* disgrace. What they've become now, a disgrace.

“They are not capable of running an after-show party. I should start a new party called the After Show Party, it would be great.”

The singer and guitarist said he had become frustrated with how Labour have been unable to the Tories since Tony Blair’s resignation in 2007.

Speaking about Boris Johnson, Gallagher said: “He is the symbol of how ******* disgraceful the Labour Party are.

“If that man and this Conservative Party won a landslide against the Labour Party then what are we saying about the ******* Labour Party. A ******* disgrace.”
