The ex-Sex Pistol anarchist, who has hardly spoken in public in the last eighteent months, finally opened his trap and did some serious slagging off today.

Firstly he shared his views about Jordan and her impending marriage to Peter Andre: “It’s disgusting. I haven’t had an invite and I’m glad. This is not a marriage based on love. It’s just an event sponsored by Granada and Hello! Magazine.”

“I can’t believe anyone would be so cheap as to marry for a career move.”

Mr. RottonLydon, you’ve met Jordan – what do you mean you can’t believe anyone could be that cheap?!

Lydon is also pissed off with old chum Bob Geldof for hinting that the Pistols would be playing Live 8: “Our names were touted around. And it looks like we turned it down. But the truth is I wasn’t asked.”

“I don’t know what shock value he was trying to get by mentioning us. But I’m glad. It was a very shoddy and weak production anyway…And there weren’t enough black faces in the show for my liking. I don’t think it achieved anything. Bob Geldof is too self-serving.”

He added to the Sun newspaper: “I don’t like this attitude of trying to guilt us into doing something. That’s the terror tactics of the Nazi party.”

Continuing: “Every time I see Bono in those big fly glasses and tight leather pants I just can’t hack it. I can’t see that as solving the world’s problems.”

“He’s crushing his testicles in tight trousers for world peace.”

Last but not least, it’s Pete Doherty’s turn, Lydon muses about the Babyshambles singer: “He’s made a decision to play this drugs game. But I haven’t seen many survivors. And I don’t want to see him become another stupid rock death.”

“Pete – calm down a little and start checking yourself. You’re not impressing anyone – you’re just depressing.”
