Thom Yorke has surprising removed his comments calling for Tony Blair’s resignation on Radiohead’s official website.

As reported on Gigwise yesterday Yorke attacked the British Prime Minister for his role is the current Israeli/Lebanese conflict and his relationship with George W Bush.

He wrote: “Our government sitting on the fence with the US while world war 3 appears. To be breaking out in Lebanon and Northern Israel. We must throw Tony Blair out of office NOW. He does not represent the views of the British people.”

“He does not represent the views of his foreign office and officials. He does not even represent the views of those in his cabinet. He cares far too much about his relationship with Bush, and Murdoch. This man is not fit to be our prime minister.”

“It’s a nice sunny day. Come on lets do it. You know it makes sense. A vote of no confidence or something, anything…”

Yorke removed the post this morning with fans speculating that he has been forced to do so or that it was the result of his own reflections on the comments.
