(a) the case will be settled out of court the day before (as they almost always are), or
(b) Morrissey will be very grumpy on those three evenings and the gigs will have little chance of going ahead...
For goodness sake, there are slightly more important things going on; the Hollie Greig case for instance. If you want to see a man that's gone it alone in the courts fighting for justice, see Robert Green ... or Dr David Halpin. These are people of outstanding courage ... not a bloated a pop star with more money than you could imagine. Morrissey will do just fine without our so-called 'support'.
Nevermind if his comments were misconstrued in the NME, if someone were to really take him to task it would be for his erroneous output on the Chinese which he was still thrashing at the Hawick gig last year. Very sad. I don't know what's happened. Morrissey was very interesting in 1994 but ... not now.
I'll go, as I have no life. Downside is that iit interferes with my working schedule, so I guess I have to fly in daily to give my support.
Does this mean Morrissey won't be making any of those NME, "Top 100 Songs of the 90's"?
If this is true, I hope Morrissey isn't silly enough to rest any store by this offer. It's far from unusual for a respondent in a case like this to make a superficially reasonable offer to settle out of court in the full expectation that it won't be accepted. It's a pretty common tactic which lawyers use to lull the other side into a false sense of security, before stepping into the courtroom and annihilating the complainant.The NME recently offered to apologize to Morrissey by offering space on nme.com, but not within the printed magazine. This offer was rejected as disproportionate to the damage done to Morrissey by the NME magazine itself.
I wonder if Morrissey was advised by his lawyers to reject the offer or whether he has just pig-headedly refused NME's olive branch. Can he and his counsel convince a jury that there has been "damage done to Morrissey"? Personally, I'm doubtful. Has he lost a recording contract because of the NME article? Have CD sales and downloads plummeted because of it? Has anybody refused to work with him because they think he's a racist? Are venues refusing to host his performances? If the case ever gets to court, it'll certainly be interesting.
Those comments may have been made in light of his apparently sudden discovery ... but he didn't speak with context. He made a stupid, ignorant generalisation to ruffle a few feathers and further cement his victim complex. The latter of which we've had in chapter and verse for God knows how long.
Oh, and anyone with any awareness of animal welfare (those who aren't more concerned with mere posturing & pointless browbeating) knew about the horrors of animal exploitation in China as far back as 1979.
Do you really call people 'retard'? How old are you?
"The NME recently offered to apologize to Morrissey by offering space on nme.com, but not within the printed magazine."
Given that the NME is a content mill run by interns, I wonder what that would have been like, had he accepted? "Top 10 NME Apologies", "Top 25 Non-Racist Morrissey Songs", "Twitter Responses to #MorrisseyHatesRacism, #CeilingCat", "50 Famous Lawsuits Settled Out of Court", etc.
Personally, I really wish I could be there to show support for Morrissey. Why shouldn't I? For years his music has supported me through all the good and bad times. As always, I wish him the very best - as I'm sure most true fans do.
I know why you're dreaming, because it's the only escape
Does one have to be a citizen to attend? I think I'd love to combine my London trip with this.

I'm guessing the evil legal eagles intervened.
God alone only knows what'll happen if Moz gets in the dock. He could very well kill the NME, in it's 60th birthday year. Or, with one Wilde moment, he could kill his career.
