Noel Gallagher Will Be Voting For Man City Player at General Elections
Former Oasis songwriter Noel Gallagher has claimed that he will be voting for a Manchester City player at the General Election.
When Labour won power in 1997's historic general election, they did so with the full backing of Oasis. At the BRIT Awards ceremony the year before Noel Gallagher declared from the stage that only six people were working to make Britain a better place: the members of Oasis and Labour leader Tony Blair.
Shaking hands with the Prime Minister at 10 Downing Street, the meeting became one of the defining moments of 'Cool Britannia'. However in a new interview Noel Gallagher has insisted that he cannot bring himself to vote for anyone at the General Election.
Speaking in a video interview with the FA, Noel Gallagher claimed that he will not be voting Labour. "Me and the missus were talking about it because we've got to vote this week,” the songwriter joked.
"She was going, 'Who are you voting for?' and I said, 'I'm not voting for anyone'."
"I'm just going to take my voting card and I'm going to put in massive letters 'Tevez is God' and throw it in the polling station. I'm voting Tevez."
Carlos Tevez is the former Manchester United striker who has become a star at rivals Manchester City. Noel Gallagher's lifelong team, the striker has helped push City up the Premiership table this term.
On a more serious note, Noel Gallagher recalled the euphoria which swept the nation after Labour got into power in 1997. "When the Labour Party got in it was all about children and education and yet 10 years down the line there's people saying that kids are better off in Poland," he said.
The General Election is tomorrow (May 6th). Don't forget to vote - your opinion is vital!
