Noel Gallagher: Britain was better under Margaret Thatcher. But hopes she dies

LONDON - You gotta love him. You MUST love him (lol).
I was right (he IS right, lol), here's the confirmation to what I was saying the other day.
This is not going to be very popular...
Noel Gallagher (who also said only rich politicians are good and was in a film produced by Berlusconi) has claimed that Britain was a better place when Margaret Thatcher was prime minister.
The former Oasis star suggested that Thatcher's policies helped the country to flourish, while recent governments have contributed to a "de-education of the masses".
"We were brought up under Thatcher. There was a work ethic - if you were unemployed, the obsession was to find work. Now, these kids brought up under the Labour Party and whatever this Coalition thing is, it's like, 'Forget that, I'm not interested. I wanna be on TV'. It was a different mindset back then," Gallagher told The Mail On Sunday.
"Under Thatcher, who ruled us with an iron rod, great art was made. Amazing designers and musicians. Acid house was born. Very colourful and progressive. Now, no-one's got anything to say. Write a song? No thanks, I'll say it on Twitter. It's a sad state when more people retweet than buy records.
"When I was 16 I'd watch The Godfather, but I didn't think, 'Right, I'm going to go down the barber's and get some protection money off him'. Our generation was more likely to go, 'I wonder where the nearest acting school is? Who wrote that soundtrack? Who's Francis Ford Coppola?' It's the de-education of the masses.
He added that he has "lost all faith in the Labour Party" since the expenses scandal and banking crisis and said its MPs should be "ashamed of themselves for the way they let the country down".
"Last August I was on tour in Europe and people were asking me about the riots. All over the world, Syria and Egypt, people were rioting for freedom. And these kids in England are rioting for tracksuits. It's embarrassing," Gallagher continued, suggesting that rioters ("fucking idiots" he said about them last summer) should have "smashed the living daylights out of the City of London" instead.
Speaking of his decision to send his kids to private school, he said: "I don't want them coming home speaking like Ali G. Anyone in my position, you owe it to your children to send them to a school where they don't have to walk through a metal detector in the morning.
"There were riot police outside our local school the other morning. Turns out there'd been a stabbing. Rival gangs. We shouldn't need riot police at schools. This is Maida Vale. This isn't Handsworth or Tottenham, do you know what I mean? I don't want my kids going to a school like that. I'd rather they were at a school with Russian oligarchs' children."
Gallagher concluded by saying that he feels sorry for females in the music industry because they have a "very short shelf life", citing Duffy as an example.
"And I don't doubt for a second that the same thing will happen to Adele," he predicted.

Of course in Australia where he is now, he's telling the opposite of this... he's always "double", in case somebody wouldn't buy his albums - me.
I think after this there are many places in Manchester where he won't be accepted anymore...

quod erat demonstrandum:

now Noel Galloga hopes Margaret Thatcher dies. Oh but there were thousands of people that now are loving her just because Noel Galliga said it was better with her!
On his blog:

"soon to be dead granny... on the day that she dies we will party like it's 1989".
style. class.

reminds me of him wishing Blur to catch AIDS and die. Hey but do you know that your fans, those you called kids, weren't even born in 1989 and don't know what the hell you're talking about?
I would feel stupid if I was one of those thousands of people automatically adoring what you say...
just another proof Noel's fans are stupid.
Now it's even worse, Noel sometimes you should just shut the fuck up.

‎"Margaret Thatcher was one of the greatest leaders of a nation in the history of the world. I wish we had someone of her stature and wisdom leading Britain now. Now that she is close to passing away, Noel is showing exactly what a mean, despicable LITTLE man he is."

so, according to Noel Gallagher, great music was made in spite of Margaret Thatcher... wait a minute: when? in the '80s. GREAT music in the EIGHTIES?! everybody knows the WORST decade for music was the Eighties, was even shite. As Paolo Hewitt says:
"Negli anni '80 la musica veniva giudicata in base ai dati di vendita e suonava insipida e fasulla; dopo avere ascoltato questi insulsi suoni, avevano deciso di fare ritorno ai fondamentali. Durante tutti gli anni '80 la musica dei Beatles è stata considerata assolutamente sorpassata, il che spiega perchè gran parte della musica prodotta nel corso di quel decennio faccia schifo: negli anni '90, invece, è tornata nuovamente in auge, e ha ricominciato a essere considerata un'influenza essenziale".
(=it was crap, 'cause it wasn't influenced by the Beatles, and judged by how much it sold, just like Noel's album... There was a lot of electronic music... A few guitars and all those keyboards, just like Keane that Noel hates! We like it 'cause it reminds us of when we were children but it was not really quality)

there's a big mistake in what Noel says... he always said there was great music as a REACTION to Maggie, so because of her, and now he says "NOT BECAUSE"?!

The only other Brit in the 20th Century as great as Margaret Thatcher was Winston Churchill. I hope she is given the huge state funeral she deserves, and is buried in Westminster Abbey. Noel can go be a toadstool in Hell.
