In the 40 years I have known him, Morrissey has never made a racist comment to me.
Ever, Simply, it has never happened.

Wilde, despite tremendous popularity in the the late 19th-century, was jailed with hard labour.
And, now, a similar fate befalls Morrissey who did not tow the far-left, revisionist Orwellian line of 2019 politics.
The cost is the necessary destruction of a unique voice.

I have to ask you one question:
if Morrissey retires and never records another song or album — does that make your world happier? x "

Behind the Meteoric Rise of Merck Mercuriadis' Hipgnosis and Why He'd Like to 'Abolish the Word Publishing': Q&A - Billboard

has just published another interview with Merck, about his Hipgnosis venture, which includes this exchange:

Q: When you buy them [songs] outright, are there stipulations in the contract, like you can't license them to an anti-abortion campaign? Do you honor those type of things?

A: Yes. If someone says to me, these are things in life that are important to me -- because again, at the end of the day, first and foremost, I'm a member of the artists' community. For example, if I was buying Morrissey's catalog and he said, "You're never going to advertise meat with my songs," first of all, I'm a vegan, so I'd be very happy to follow that path. I'll never use any of these songs to sell meat. But if someone had...
Posting this interview (it's very, very, very long) with Merck Mercuriadis because it mentions Morrissey but aside from that it's one of the most interesting music business interviews I've read in a long time.

"I use that word incorruptible to describe Morrissey as well when people talk about how difficult Morrissey is. He’s incorruptible. He knows what is right for him and it doesn’t matter whether or not it’s right for you he is going to end up doing what’s right for him. If you are going to work with Morrissey the only basis that you can work with Morrissey is if you believe that the work is important. A level of importance that it doesn’t really matter that what happens with the...

"In support of Morrissey:

The truth is, there is a hate campaign which is artificial, fabricated and does not reflect the views of real people: people who attend concerts and buy records. 'For Britain' is repeatedly described as a 'far right-wing party', when it isn't. It is run by an irish lesbian who opposes patriarchy.

People are murdered on London Bridge, or children destroyed by nail bombs at concerts, or....the list is legion....There is a very much a problem linked to extremist Islam: its 21st-century core beliefs are still affirmatively anti-feminist, anti-LGBT, and anti-democratic. This is NOT anti-Muslim; it is anti-undemocratic; anti-patriarchy; anti-religious extremism.

Morrissey was a contrarian in the 1980s and 1990s. and who saved many people's lives—as many hundreds avow—through the messages of his songs., In 2019, he is still a contrarian. Yet, in the UK, he is a hate figure whom a...
