Liam Gallagher throws his hat into the ring for Tory leadership

Liam Gallagher throws his hat into the ring for Tory leadership as he vows to ‘sort out this pile of s**t’… but admits the first thing he’ll do as Prime Minster is reunite Oasis

Liam Gallagher insists he is the man to finalise Brexit after throwing his hat into the ring in the race for the Tory leadership – but insists the first thing he would do as Prime Minister is reunite Oasis.

Conservative politicians Boris Johnson, Jeremy Hunt, Dominic Raab, Sajid Javid, Rory Stewart and Michael Gove – who recently admitted to experimenting with cocaine – are currently vying to take the Number 10 house keys from departing Teresa May in July.

But the outspoken singer, 46, insists he has the right attributes to lead the country through its current political turmoil, despite his own schedule dominated by the promotion of forthcoming second album Why Me? Why Not.

Following his characteristically colourful message with a pun, he quipped: ‘ParLIAMent c’mon you know.’ 

The post prompted an inevitable barrage of responses from fans, with one asking the singer what he would do first in the unlikely event that he enters Number 10.

‘Get oasis back together I’d make it law,’ he replied, a reference to the iconic Brit Pop band he fronted for more than 15-years before their acrimonious 2009 split. 

Liam is a parent to daughter Molly, 21, with singer Lisa Moorish, son Lennon, 19, with first wife Patsy Kensit, Gene, 17, with second wife Nicole Appleton and youngest daughter Gemma, six, with American journalist Liza Ghorbani. 

Molly was estranged from Liam for the first twenty years of her life before an emotional meeting with the singer last May, at a pub close to his home in Highgate, north London.

The singer has even penned a song about her, Now That I Found You, for his new album.

He made the revelation on The Chris Moyles Show on Radio X, explaining the song’s title, saying: ‘Not that she was lost or anything, or she was captured by the Taliban or anything like that.

‘But it’s got a “now that you’re in my life” kinda vibe. It’s cool. It’s nice.’
