MORRISSEY, THANK YOU - Anne Marie Walters Official Website
April 2018 / 19

Dear Morrissey,

Thank you for your recent kind words about For Britain; you are obviously a person with the courage to tell it like it is. In fact, I suspect you and I have a few things in common. I’ve always believed in stating plain facts, and that’s what will bring success For Britain.

We will talk to the back-bone of this country – the working majority. Nobody is listening to the person who gets out of bed, gets the bus to work, pays their bills, raises their kids, and stays within the law. Their opinions mean nothing to a political elite that sees the world as its chess board. Human life is a game they play in Westminster. They have no right, and we will take back the power that rightly belongs to us.

Like you, I feel a strong compassion for animals, and our policies on animal welfare are very close to my heart. I have two dogs next...

There’s been a huge demand for ‘Shut up, Morrissey’ merchandise since that interview… - NME

Excerpt:

This Charming Bag...

Following the reaction to a recent controversial interview by Morrissey, hundreds rushed online to purchase merchandise urging him to shut up.

This week, the former Smiths turned solo star made headlines in a divisive interview in which he discussed accusations of racism, referred to Hitler as ‘left wing’ and said that London Mayor Sadiq Khan “can not talk properly“.

So strong was the reaction, that Manchester’s Verity Longley re-started production on...

Morrissey: Racism and bigotry masquerading as animal welfare - Love Music Hate Racism
"Morrissey has jumped from the gutter into the sewer with his latest racist outbursts, which single out Muslims, Jews and Black and Asian politicians.

Excerpt:

Echoing fascist and ultra nationalist parties in Europe, the singer has called for Halal and Kosher meat to be banned and dumped abuse on shadow home secretary Diane Abbott and on London’s Mayor Sadiq Khan.
According to Morrissey, “halal slaughter requires certification that can only be given by supporters of Isis”, a process which he describes as “evil” and which should be banned. He also calls for the outlawing of Jewish kosher meat preparation, which he says is “very cruel”.
The message is barely coded. From the Nazi BNP and EDL in Britain to Marine Le Pen’s Front National in France to...

JOHN: Thanks for talking to me because I know you don’t talk to the press anymore. I can guess the reasons why, but can you explain them now?

MORRISSEY: Yes. There is simply no point. They don’t print what you say, and they print what you didn’t say. There’s hardly any point in me being there! The function of reporting has disappeared. Now, all journalists are megastars and the only aim of their interview is to express and establish their own personal views, and to hell with whatever the interviewee says.

JOHN: So why have you agreed to talk to me?

MORRISSEY: Because you’re not from The Guardian....
From Warner: All the Young People Must Fall in Love (Bob Clearmountain Mix) / Rose Garden (Live at The Grand Ole Opry,
Nashville) is the fourth 7" release from Morrissey's album 'Low In High School'. Low in High School is
Morrissey’s first studio album since 2014 and was recorded at La Fabrique Studios in France and in Rome at
Ennio Morricone’s Forum Studios. The record is produced by Joe Chiccarelli (who has worked with Frank
Zappa, The Strokes, Beck and The White Stripes to name a few). Morrissey’s talent for combining political
statements and beautiful melodies is more prevalent than ever on Low in High-School, capturing the
zeitgeist of an ever-changing world.

Morrissey excerpt:

"In the 1980s, her work was championed by The Smiths frontman Steven Patrick Morrissey, himself a product of the Irish migration to northern English cities that so influenced Delaney’s work. Delaney would grace the cover of Smiths single Girlfriend in a Coma and the compilation Louder than Bombs, while some of the most evocative lyrics from Morrissey’s pen were lifted almost verbatim from A Taste of Honey, including “the dream has gone, but the baby is real” and “I dreamt about you last night, and I fell out of bed twice.” Delaney sits second perhaps only to Oscar Wilde as a clear influence over much of Morrissey’s output, in a lineage of...
