Noel Ghallager gave an interview with the Manchester Evening News published today. In it, he rails against the political culture that's developed over the last few years.
He explains how he woke up after the EU referendum shocked that people would vote to leave the EU, and did not vote himself. He says that he gets mad at himself for not bothering to vote. But he goes on to say 'There's only f***ing one thing worse than a fool who voted for Brexit. That's the rise of the c*** trying to get the vote overturned'.
Noel says that he was invited onto Question Time before the vote to talk about the EU, but thought that as a non-voter he couldn't have felt strongly enough about it; he says that when growing up he used to say that 'if you don't vote, you don't get to have an opinion'.
He says he doesn't believe that Brexit will perminantly damage Britain. He said
"It's really sad f***ing times. But the thing I think about it is, when we eventually do leave, it'll be f***ed up for a bit, right, then it'll just get back to normal.
"No one is going to ostracise GB from the rest of the world. We're too f***ng brilliant. There's a lot of f***ing great things going on in this country. I don't think when we leave we go into the abyss.
"It might get pretty black for a bit. We've got the stock market. The biggest f***ing money laundering racket in the world. It's just sad that people are so divided now."
The rise of violent protests on the left, including milkshake throwing, has in his view meant that the left is no longer better than the right - where once you would think of the right alone when talking about political violence, the left is now (in Noel's view) as violent.
He moves on to talk about Labour's leader. From supporting Blair in the 1990s, he is clearly not a fan of the party anymore. He cites Labour's Antisemitism crisis as a reason for his dislike of Labour today, and calls Corbyn a "F***ng student debater, f***ing captain fishy craggy old f***ing donkey"
In his view, the Labour party and the Conservatives provide two opposites that cannot be the right choice for Britain. He says "the Labour Party don't respect people who are aspirational, and the Conservative Party don't protect the vulnerable". He goes on to say that "somewhere in the middle is where New Labour danced, and they kind of had it f***ing right, and then 9/11 happened, and here we are."
