Oh, Stephen Patrick, your Big Mouth Strikes Again.
The lead singer of arguably the best band the UK has produced since The Beatles has been mouthing off again and this time has come up with some real gems. Morrissey has been talking to Loaded magazine (I am not sure why? Surely they represent a lot of things he hates) and the conversation has been picked up by of all people The Daily Mail.
When pressed on politics Morrissey has the usual go at Cameron and then takes time to say how much he likes UKIP’s leader Nigel Farage
‘I nearly voted for UKIP. I like Nigel Farage a great deal. His views are quite logical – especially where Europe is concerned, although it was plain daft of him to applaud the lavish expense of the Royal Wedding at a time when working-class England were told to cut-back, shut-up and get stuffed.’
I am not entirely sure he means it…
Morrissey also has a blast at Jimmy Saville – ‘He was a profiteer, and those who protected him are still here. However, I’m not sure if witch-hunts against aged Radio Caroline DJs is quite the point. ‘2013 enlightenment can’t be applied to dark and dim nights of 1972, otherwise every singer who ever slept with a 14-year-old would suddenly be behind bars – and that would take a lot of bars.’
The Beckhams ‘I’d… have the Peckhams (Beckhams) dragged to the edge of the village and flogged because they are insufferable to anyone of intelligence, and they actively chase the paparazzi.’
And in a more traditional vein stag hunting. ‘If I kicked a dog I’d be fined £200, yet we’re asked to accept Cameron shooting down a majestic stag just for a hoot. Weird world, isn’t it?’
‘Sweetness I was only joking when I said…’
