Noel Gallagher has said he refuses to wear a face mask while shopping, in defiance of laws which were introduced earlier this year. Appearing on The Matt Morgan podcast, the former Oasis singer described the use of face coverings as "bollocks", after they were introduced in an attempt to curb the spread of coronavirus. You're supposed to wear them in Selfridges, yet you can fucking go down the pub and be surrounded by every fucking cunt. It's like, 'oh actually, we don't have the virus in pubs but we have it in Selfridges?'," Gallagher said. Wearing a face covering over your nose and mouth is mandatory by law in all shops and supermarkets in the UK, although exemptions are in place for children under 11 and people with health issues.
They are also compulsory on public transport, with Gallagher recalling how he refused to wear a covering on a recent train journey to Manchester. When challenged by Morgan, who argued that the masks help to prevent the spread of the virus, Gallagher falsely claimed that it is not the law to wear a mask. He said: "Listen to me, it's not a law. In contrast, his brother Liam recently admitted that wearing a mask had "gotta be done", despite not being a fan of the coverings. In other news, Gallagher recently expressed his desire to record a cover album featuring songs by Burt Bacharach and The Smiths.
But you don't have to put it on if you're eating.' So I was saying: Oh right, this killer virus that's sweeping through the train is gonna come and attack me, but see me having a sandwich and go, leave him, he's having his lunch? "Why do you have to wear one when you're having a fucking haircut, but you don't have to wear one in the pub?" he added. Contrary to Gallagher's complaint, by UK law you must wear a face covering on public transport, as well as in concert halls, shops, hotels and numerous other public locations. Noel Gallagher said that he refuses to wear a face mask in a new interview on The Matt Morgan Podcast. "I was going up to Manchester the other weekend and some guy's going, 'Oh, can you put your mask on?' on the train, and they said the transport police would get on and fine you a thousand pounds, but you don't have to put it on when you're eating," Gallagher continued.
If every other cunt's wearing a mask I'm not gonna catch it off them, and If I've got it then they're not gonna catch it off me. Gallagher further questioned why people need to wear a mask on public transportation or at a barber's shop but not if they're out getting a drink. "I was going up to Manchester the other week and some guy's going 'can you put your mask on, because the transport police will get on and fine you a thousand pounds. "So I was saying 'Oh right, this killer virus that's sweeping through the train is gonna come and attack me but see me having a sandwich and go leave him, he's having his lunch?'" Despite Noel's refusal to wear one, his brother Liam recently tweeted that mask wearing's "gotta be done." Classic Gallaghers. Listen to Noel Gallagher talk about why he won't wear a mask on The Matt Morgan Podcast. All that said, former Oasis member Noel Gallagher doesn't count himself among mask proponents, as he says he refuses to wear one. During a recent appearance on the The Matt Morgan Podcast, Gallagher declared, "I don't wear a mask, no." He went on to explain his position: You're supposed to wear them in Selfridges [UK department store], yet you can f*cking go down the pub and be surrounded by every f*cking c*nt, do you know what I mean? It's like, 'Oh, well actually, we don't have the virus in pubs, but we have it in Selfridges?' I was going up to Manchester the other week and f*cking some guy's going, 'Can you put your mask on? But you don't have to put it on if you're eating.' So I was saying, 'Oh right, so this killer virus that's sweeping through the train is gonna come and attack me but it's gonna see me having a sandwich and go, 'Leave him, he's having his lunch."" When Morgan explained the effectiveness of masks, Gallagher responded, "It's not a law. If every other c*nt's wearing a mask, I'm not gonna catch it off them, and if I've got it, then they're not gonna catch it off me. Gallagher's claim that "it's not a law" to wear a mask in the UK is inaccurate: gov.uk lists a number of "indoor settings" where "you must wear a face covering by law," including "public transport," "shops and supermarkets," and many others.
