Liam Gallagher has hit out at the UK government over the suggestion that artists may have to adjust or retrain amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The music industry has been hit catastrophically since this year with no major gigs, festivals or events taking place in the UK since lockdown measures were enforced in March.
Now, the outspoken former Oasis frontman has appeared to respond to Rishi Sunak’s comments on ITV, which suggested there would be a “need to adapt” in the creative industry.
Taking to Twitter to disagree with the view that people in the arts may have to diversify and retrain to survive the pandemic, Gallagher began: “So the dopes in gov telling musicians and people in arts to retrain and get another job what and become massive cunts like you nah yer alright c’mon you know LG x”.
He continued: “This country would be beyond wank if it wasn’t for the arts and the music and football show a bit of respect you little TURD cmon you know LG x”.
The Shockwave singer went one further, writing: “If anyone needs to retrain it’s them shower of C**** c’mon you know LG x”.
Gallagher isn’t the only musician to have shared his feelings about Rishi Sunak’s interview.
His former Britpop rival Dave Rowntree from Blur said: “The idea that the ‘arts’ are somehow optional, voluntary, a vocation, rather than a massive foreign currency earner, and central to the UK economy.”
It’s not the first time Liam has shared his opinion of the UK government’s measures.
Appearing to react to England’s measures in September, which forbade people to gather in groups larger than six.
Referring to his beloved tipi, the Shockwave singer wrote: “6 people in your house do the same rules apply to a TP mmm 24 hour party TP c’mon you know LG x”.
The Wall Of Glass singer added: “He added: “They’ll be telling you nxt you can only p*** in your toilets Monday to Friday s***s only Saturdays n Sunday’s c’mon you know LG x”
While Gallagher didn’t seem to be on board with the government’s strict new rules to help curb a second wave of the coronavirus, he then appeared to promote their policy on face coverings by sharing an image of himself wearing a disposable face mask.
