now The Who’s Roger Daltrey is talking about Brexit, Trump (and Hillary)
John Lydon is not the only elder rocker to have opinions about World politics. The Who's Roger Daltrey, in an interview with NME, is decidedly pro-Brexit:
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.
They also asked him about Trump, of course, who he seems less keen on:
His fucking haircut! He needs it cut and as my mother would say, ‘wash your fucking 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 [Hillary Clinton] up. A dead dog would have won it against [her], look at that.
The Who will be be in the land of Trump on tour this summer, including Upstate NY and Atlantic City shows.
