'Conservatives Are A Bunch Of Bastards', Says Elbow Frontman Guy Garvey

Guy Garvey, frontman of English alt-rockers Elbow, has claimed that the Conservative party are a ‘bunch of bastards’ after being asked by Metro why he thinks the Olympic spirit left Britain as quickly as it arrived.

The star, who also referenced the party’s plans of dismantling the NHS and their push involving police commissioners as a reason for his disliking, described the state of the country and our governing body as ‘depressing’.

He told the free paper: “We're all aware of what tough times we’re having… David Cameron's less-than-subtle dismantling of the NHS is on everyone's mind. The new push with police commissioners – it’s depressing watching him turning the country back to the Victorian era.”

He added: “That's why everyone's depressed. This bunch of bastards are using the recession to get the Tory work done… It will take us a couple of decades to undo this bunch's handiwork.”
