Noel Gallagher is once again the protagonist of a monumental controversy, and it is that in recent years this word is practically linked to his well-known surname. The eldest of the Oasis group has given an interview for ‘The Matt Morgan podcast’ in which rejects the measures taken by different governments to curb the coronavirus pandemic and he has used irony to compare the different scenarios in which the use of a mask is mandatory in the United Kingdom.
“The whole thing is nonsense,” he snapped to begin. “You’re supposed to wear them in Selfridges (a mall), but you can go to the pub and be surrounded by every fucking idiot. You know what I mean? It’s like, ‘oh we don’t actually have the virus in pubs but we do have it in Selfridges“He said before attacking the obligation to cover part of the face in public spaces.
“I was going to go to Manchester the other week and a guy said to me, ‘Can you put the mask on? Because the transport police will come up and fine you a thousand pounds, but you don’t have to wear it if you’re eating.’ So he was saying: ‘Oh sure this killer virus sweeping the train will come and attack me, but if it sees me eating a sandwich it will leave me alone and he’ll ask me, ‘Are you having lunch?’
The interviewer then explained that the masks were a method to prevent and avoid the spread of the virus, but the musician insisted that the law does not oblige him, something completely false: “Listen to me, it’s not a law. Now they’re taking too many fucking freedoms from us“he snapped.
And is that not using the mask has already caused some problems on the street and in public places, especially in the supermarket. There, as he explained, he received a reprimand for not using the mask and had to do it with the manager: “I don’t give a shit. I choose not to use it and if I contract the virus, I have it and no one else. If all the other idiots wear a mask I won’t take it off, and if I have it, they won’t take it off. I think it’s silly, “he reiterated.
