Now, speaking to Paste, Gallagher has said: “Fuck Jeremy Corbyn. He’s a Communist.”

He went on to speak about the US President, saying: “Trump’s a…a… I’m not even going to name him. But they [Corbyn and Trump] don’t affect my life. Well, Donald Trump, maybe, because his views on the environment are pretty fucking scary, and that will affect my children. But politicians? They’re fucking idiots. They’re economists—that’s all they are. They’re fucking full of shit, and I should know, because I’ve known quite a few of them.”

“I don’t watch the news,” Gallagher said. “The news is fucking boring. So if the world is going to end, I don’t want to know about it. I don’t want to watch the run-up to it. If the sky is going to catch fire because some little, fat North Korean idiot flies a rocket into it, let it fucking end. I don’t want to know about it. I’d rather be doing something else.”
