Noel Gallagher has said voting to leave the EU was "nonsensical" but trying to overturn Brexit is "fascism" and those doing it should "go to North Korea".

In a blistering, expletive-laden interview with the Manchester Evening News, the former Oasis guitarist called Nigel Farage an "unremarkable little man", Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn a "f***ing captain fishy craggy old f***ing donkey" who talks "pipe-smoking communist nonsense'.

Gallagher said: "There's only one f***ing thing worse that a fool who voted for Brexit. That's the rise of the c***s trying to get the vote overturned.

"You take part in a democratic process - if you don't like the outcome, go to North Korea... I sat the day of Brexit and thought: 'I can't be arsed going to the polling station, who the f**k would vote to leave Europe? It's a nonsensical f***ing idea.' And you wake up the next day and think: 'F***ing hell, s***.'

"But the thing that is taking place after that is frankly a disgrace. It's a disgrace when you see people trying to get that vote overturned. Because that's fascism. Straight up. Pure and simple. Flying in the face of democracy, no matter what, because you don't like what f***ing happened."

He said: "None of us like it. But there it is, it's happened. I get really f***ing cross at myself for not voting, as I'm sure a lot of people didn't vote. They didn't because they were thinking no one's going to vote to leave, it's a ridiculous idea. But now, I would defend the rights of people who voted to leave, it has to f***ing go through."

Gallagher also believes there should not be a second referendum saying: "What happens then? What happens then if everyone votes to remain? Do we have a best of three? Or what happens if it comes back and it's a bigger majority to leave, what happens then?

"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."

Gallagher famously backed Tony Blair in 1997, when Britpop ruled the charts and New Labour was billed 'Cool Britannia'. But the High Flying Birds frontman now has "no f***ing time for them anymore".

He said: "They talk pipe-smoking communist nonsense, do you know what I mean?...

"The two extremes are the Labour Party don't respect people who are aspirational, and the Conservative Party don't protect the vulnerable. But 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."

Gallagher went on to criticise former UKIP founder, and current Brexit Party leader, Nigel Farage, saying: "And this unremarkable little man, Farage, this unremarkable little f***ing man, from nowhere, appears out of nowhere seemingly and has like somehow fucking tapped into something that none of us were aware of.

"Maybe that's our fault. We live in London, right – you might as well be in another country. Because everything is ran from down there. They don't realise what's going on in other parts of the country."
