Roger Daltrey has criticised Labour and explained his reasons for being pro-Brexit in a new interview, following controversial remarks where he branded Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn a "communist" and disparaged the #MeToo movement. 

"Why would any rock star need to push themselves on women?" he told Event magazine. "Usually, it's the other way around. I'd like to have £1 for every woman that screws my ass. Mick Jagger would be a billionaire out of it.

"It it was going to be in the rock business, it would've been out by now. It would've been out by now," he continued. "I find this whole thing so obnoxious. It's always allegations and it's just salacious crap."

In a new interview with The Telegraph, he said of his dislike for Labour: "It pains me to say it, but in my life a Labour government comes in with incredible optimism and leaves the country in the s**t."

He reiterated his comments on Brexit and Europe: "I'm not anti-Europe, I'm anti-Brussels, but people don't get the distinction... That's why I'm so angry about it. I want someone at least answerable to me that I can say: "F**k off, you're useless!"

Daltrey, who just released his new solo album As Long As I Have You, derided today's pop singers, commenting: "They're singing all the right notes but there's too much wobbling. Nothing wrong with a good straight word now and again. If I ever start to do that, please smack me on the back of the head."

He also claimed rock music has "gone backwards", although said he liked the Brighton band Royal Blood and said it was good that Noel and Liam Gallagher are "out there giving it a go".
