Punk Rock ICON Johnny Rotten Weighs In On Brexit, Trump & Farage And It’s Bad@ss!

Sex Pistols frontman and Punk legend Johnny Rotten talks to Piers Morgan about Brexit… and Trump.

Punk was anti-establishment, working class and say anything.

Does that sound more like the Left or the Right these days?

Now a U.S. citizen, Johnny Rotten, (aka Johnny Lydon,) talks about the unfair attacks by the ‘Left-wing Media’ that tries to brand President Trump a racist.

It’s pretty awesome!

Speaking on ITV’s Good Morning Britain, the Sex Pistols frontman praised how the former UKIP leader led a flotilla of pro-Brexit fishermen in the so-called “Battle of the Thames” – when they faced off with a group of pro-EU millionaires and celebrities.

“After that up-the-River-Thames argument he had with Bob Geldof, I wanted to shake [Nigel Farage’s] hand because it was silly beyond belief.

“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,” he said.

The punk icon also said the unconventional outsider President Trump was a type of punk rock politician who was being unfairly attacked by the media establishment.

He dubbed Mr. Trump “a complicated fellow”, adding: “As one journalist once said to me, is he the political Sex Pistol? In a way…”

When host Piers Morgan described Mr. Trump as “the archetypal anti-establishment figure”, Mr. Lydon said: “Dare I say, a possible friend.”

You will recall that it was the Sex Pistols that wrote the song, ‘God Save the Queen’, that called the monarchy a ‘fascist regime’.
