BOB GELDOF slammed Theresa May and her Government saying they have led the UK into “chaos”.
The singer-songwriter and political activist said Theresa May had “no authority whatsoever about anything”.
Speaking on Sky News, Mr Geldof was asked about the Rohingya crisis in Myanmar and the UK Government’s response.
The Prime Minister’s spokesman said on Monday that the crisis “looks like ethnic cleansing”.
Asked about the Rohingya people and what he thought of the Prime Minister’s reaction, Mr Geldof did not hold back his views.
He said: “This Government can’t really distinguish between anything any longer. They really have, they’ve got no authority whatsoever about anything.
“I don’t want to hear what they have to say about anything.
“They lead the country into chaos and they’ve got a Foreign Secretary who should be protecting our citizens.
“I’m not interested in what Theresa May or Johnson or any of that gang have got to say about this at all.”
Mr Geldof last month delivered searing criticism of a number of world leaders, saying he was “sick of them”.
At the opening ceremony of the One Young World Summit in Bogota, Colombia, Geldof turned his particular attention to State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi over her government’s treatment of the Rohingya minority in Myanmar.
“On this stage are some of the greatest people who have fought for justice and peace and equality in our world,” he said, referring to the Nobel Peace Laureates sitting on stage behind him.
“And one of their number in Burma insults them – insults them all. Who took the greatest prize that humans can give to another and then becomes one of the great ethnic cleansers of our planet. This is a disgrace.”
Miss Suu Kyi, who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1991, spent a total of 15 years under house arrest when in opposition.
However, she has drawn widespread criticism for her silence on the treatment of the Rohingya people in Burma, which the UN human rights chief, Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, has called “a textbook example of ethnic cleansing”.
Earlier this month, mother-of-one Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe was summoned back to court in Iran and threatened with further charges after Mr Johnson mistakenly told a Commons committee that she had been training journalists at the time of her arrest.
