Hall of Fame rocker Roger Daltry isn’t shy about giving his opinion on politics, as a recent interview he gave makes plain.
The Who frontman was vocal about his support for Brexit and his disgust of Hillary Clinton during a conversation with the New Musical Express.
When the website asked about Daltry opinion on Trump, the singer started with the President’s hair and moved down to Hillary Clinton.
“His f***ing haircut! He needs it cut and as my mother would say, ‘wash your f***ing mouth out’. On other pieces of politics, let’s put it this way: when you say that middle America and the Democrats lost it, but Trump didn’t really win it – because Democrats threw it away by putting [Hilary Clinton] up. A dead dog would have won it against [her], look at that.”
New Musical Express also asked Daltry about his opinion of the UK’s decision to leave the European Union.
“We are getting out, and when the dust settles I think that it’ll be seen that it’s the right thing for this country to have done, that’s for sure.
It’s got nothing to do with any of the immigration issues or any of that for me. It was to do with much more. The majority of this country felt that their voices weren’t being heard. It would have been nice to do a deal with Europe but they didn’t want to do a deal, and they sent Cameron back with a bag.
I’m sad we voted how we voted, but I think we have to go with it now. This country will always be alright, I don’t worry about it. You know it’s going to be bumpy on the way – we expected that; the ones that voted to get out. But Iceland had it a bit bumpy when they went bankrupt, but oh not now.”
His opinion marked the second this week from a famous British musician vocally supporting Brexit. Earlier it was the Sex Pistols‘ Johnny Rotten who was praising Brexit and UK politician Nigel Farage.
“Where do I stand on Brexit? Well, here it goes, the working class have spoke and I’m one of them and I’m with them. And there it is.”
