In an interview with entertainment web site NME, Roger Daltrey was asked some questions about politics. He still thinks voting for the U.K. to leave the European Union was the right call.
The frontman has been very outspoken about his opinion on Brexit, going on record last year to slam the ‘corruption’ of the EU and say “I am not anti European, but I an anti the present way we are being governed in Europe”.
Now, as the band prepare to perform at London’s Royal Albert Hall for Teenage Cancer Trust, Daltrey told NME: “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.”
The lead singer for The Who was asked about Donald Trump, naturally.
When asked his opinion on Donald Trump, Daltrey told NME: “His f*cking haircut! He needs it cut and as my mother would say, ‘wash your f*cking mouth out’.
Daltrey apparently doesn’t see Trump’s election as a statement about Trump himself because he thinks that virtually anyone could have beaten Hillary in the recent U.S. Presidential election.
“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.”
That probably wasn’t another shot at Trump’s hair but it could have been.
