I doubt if he spent £1m on drugs. He was only using them for around three or four years, if he stopped in 1998. He wouldn't have had the money pre-Oasis to be a serious user.

If we had a thread for every time Noel bashed some other musician, there would be a sub-forum designated for the subject on this site.

Or in the absence of that, an ongoing thread in Bang & Clatter might be a better idea.

I will answer that with a few points

Kyoto
Work choices
IWC
medicare levy

That is the kind of statement someone puts forward when they have a below arbitrary understanding of political process. I am beyond left. I am off the leftist scale, but I understand that the constituency is split 43% left, 43% right, and 14& swinging voters. Would you rather a moderate approach to leftist social change, bringing about a leftist agenda in a step by step process, or would rather lose an election straight away and have the Liberal party back where everyone can work 12 hour shifts with no breaks, penalty rates or sick leave for American standard wages?
I'm right behind the ALP all the way and I understand the need for immediate moderation and relevative conservatism to a degree. But there were other areas where they could have really shown themselves to be especially progressive without necessarily drawing the ire of swingers and the entire right. I refer to the emissions target of a rather meagre 5%. I'm by no means one of those fundamental green crusaders, but I just felt establishing a target of 10 to 15% at the very least would have indicated to the consitituency that the Rudd Government were hyper-serious in their commitment to addressing the issue of climate change. Many in the Aussie right wouldn't have really understood what the issue was all about anyway. It was an opportunity lost, in my opinion, and this moment has raised some skepticism amongst many in the Aussie left as to how fair dinkum the Rudd Govt is in being progressive (not leftist). That's not to say that they did the right or wrong thing in setting that specific target of 5%, but more so that they could have appeased both swingers and the moderate and very moderate right who hoped that the Rudd Govt would be more assertive in establishing progressive policy.

The climate change issue need not be 100% associated with the left, just because of the Greenie association; it's become something more populist in the past decade if anything, and that's why it might have been an opportunity to properly capitalise on the hope many people had in Rudd Govt.

If I would get one euro for every time MadForIt makes a post about Oasis, I'd be rich right now.

Just think of that part as the designated beer or toilet break and everyone's happy.

Noel Gallagher!!

Remember Bono saying Chris Martin is a wanker? Now our little Noel has to do the same sort of thing in order to be seen as an arrogant ass again. Lame!

Why "Sir Noel?" I don't think they'd give knighthood to a man who told another man he should "catch AIDS and die."

Nah, that's just the nickname that diehard Oasis fans use for him. They treat him like royalty, y'know, though some might think he's the opposite of that.
