The band are due to play a show in Israel this week [July 19] and the band have faced requests to cancel the gig, with an open letter recently issued by Artists For Palestine UK - and signed by musicians including Roger Waters - asking the group to "think again" about their decision amid an ongoing and widespread cultural boycott of the country.

Roger Waters is a supporter of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Movement (BDS), and immediately criticised the band's decision.

Scotland's Brexit Minister has urged MSPs to back calls for changes to the Repeal Bill to guarantee protection for devolved powers.

Yorke, in turn, has responded to the criticism by the likes of Waters and Ken Loach by calling it "extremely upsetting" and saying that he wouldn't dare try to tell someone else where they shouldn't work. Over the weekend, Waters said that "we should observe the picket line" and accused Yorke of "whining" over the matter. We've played in Israel for over 20 years through a succession of governments, some more liberal than others. Anybody who's tempted to do that [gig], like our friends in Radiohead. if only they would actually educate themselves. We don't endorse (Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin) Netanyahu any more than (U.S. leader Donald) Trump, but we still play in America.

He added: "I know Thom Yorke's been whining about how he feels insulted, people are suggesting he doesn't know what's going on".

Ex-Pink Floyd member Waters has since hit out at Yorke over his lack of communication regarding the issue. "Well, Thom, you shouldn't feel insulted because if you did know what's going on, you would have a conversation with (director) Ken Loach, who's been begging you to have a conversation, or with me".
