Noel Gallagher has the lost faith

We seem to recall that, upon his election, Noel Gallagher rushed round for tea with Tony Blair. And didn't Noel once make a speech, tears in his eyes, about how Tony was the only hope for the country?

Noel's changed his mind a little bit:

"David Cameron is no different from Tony Blair, and Gordon Brown is no different from David Cameron.

"They're all cut from the cloth and it annoys me that the biggest political icon from the last 30 years has been Margaret Thatcher, someone who tried to destroy the working class...it freaks me out you know.

"So I don't really think there's anything left to vote for. That's why people don't vote.....why people would rather vote for celebrity talent show than would vote for politics."

Noel, everyone can change their mind - indeed, better to be flexible than locked into an entrenched position - but shouldn't you at least try and explain where you think Blair went wrong? It can't be the Iraq war, as - if memory serves - you were one of the loudest voices trying to shout down the anti-war movement, weren't you?
Gallagher criticised Mr Cameron for refusing to admit or deny using drugs while a schoolboy.

"To say no comment is typical of him and his party copping out.

"They wait to see what Tony Blair says...and then they move in behind and switch it and change a little bit."

"It's like a song writer who's eternally ripping off someone else's song and just changing the odd line a little."

You mean... like a band that... perhaps copies The Beatles, or throws John Lennon lyrics into their own... or whose... hang about... all going swirly...

On the other hand, I find myself getting more and more pissed-off by the Lemur. He was pretty neat to start with, but has now crossed the line from "running joke" to "immense pain in the arse".

The Lemur Backlash starts here!

Oh, anonymous... you don't want to make the lemur upset.

Mind you, it's only a short step from pain in the arse to a lifetime achievement award...
