John Lydon Backs Brexit

"The working class have spoke..."

John Lydon has controversially claimed to be in favour of Brexit.

The Sex Pistols and Public Image Limited frontman appeared on ITV's Good Morning Britain earlier today (March 27th) and was probed on his political views.

"Where do I stand on Brexit? Well, here it goes, the working class have spoke and I’m one of them and I’m with them."

The singer also said Nigel Farage was "fantastic", and that he wanted to shake his hand, explaining: "After that up the River Thames argument he had with Bob Geldof I wanted to shake his hand because it was silly beyond belief."

The conversation then turned towards the election of Donald Trump: "One journalist once said to me, is he the political Sex Pistol? In a way."

"What I dislike is the left-wing media in America are trying to smear the bloke as a racist and that’s completely not true."

"There are many, many problems with him as a human being but he’s not that and there just might be a chance something good will come out of that situation because he terrifies politicians."

Finishing, John Lydon said: "This is a joy to behold for me. Dare I say, [he could be] a possible friend."
