Morrissey: The Prime Minister Britain Actually Needs - Gateway Pundit
Guest Post By Breitbart’s Charlie Nash

Excerpt:

The British General Election is on Thursday, and the people are faced with a disappointing range of candidates. With the success of Brexit and Nigel Farage’s departure, UKIP are as good as dead, and Tim Farron’s Liberal Democrats have marketed themselves as a more anti-Brexit clone of the Labour party, leaving us with two main party candidates to choose from:

The Conservative Party’s Theresa May, an unelected Prime Minister who publicly wants to bring about government control over the internet, and who pretends to be for Brexit, despite having treated the general populace like children during her campaign against it....
Russell Brand discusses ‘rude’ and ‘hard work’ Morrissey - NME
Jun 6, 2017

"He's got some sort of gravitas. People are properly affected by him."

Russell Brand has discussed his relationship with Morrissey, saying the Smiths legend can be “rude” and “hard work”.

The comedian is such a big fan of Morrissey that he named his cat after him, and in recent years the duo have become friends too.

Asked by a Q reader if Morrissey is “hard”, Brand replied: “He’s hard work! Everyone that knows him, even the people you think are as famous to him, really kowtow to him.”

“He’s got some sort of gravitas,” Brand added. “People are properly affected by him.”

Brand also shared the story of a witty put-down Morrissey aimed at him after a gig the comedian had played at...
This is top-notch. and no mistake.

HBO has a comedy special this month, a funny/dark guy named Chris Gethard who is a real fan; I had no idea, but the dude mentions the Smiths/Moz in 3 or 4 occasions and sings a little bit of "I Know It's Over" and "Asleep" during the show, shows off a Morrissey tattoo. Funniest part is him trying to explain who Moz is.

Alex Broun's film - A BEAUTIFUL REQUEST - Indiegogo

Overview:

The first half of this film was shot over three days in January 2017 in Melbourne. We managed to raise a minimal amount of the budget independently through private support, sponsorship and goods and services to film this first half. If we don't reach our target of $4,000, the film will remain unfinished. That would be a sad reality, so we ask that if you wish to see this film, please make a pledge and share this campaign as much as you can. Every pledge is important and no amount is too small.
