    Morrissey Central "Minneapolis" (May 29, 2020)

    I don't disagree with what you're saying - good point well made. But violent crime is currently at very low levels across all countries in lockdown. The police have been having a very quiet Friday and Saturday night with bars and clubs closed. Domestic violence and child abuse have been on the...

    Morrissey Central "Minneapolis" (May 29, 2020)

    What to do about rising violent criminality and gang culture - and how the police should respond to it professionally in conjunction with health and social services - is an important debate but it's a different debate. George Floyd wasn't being aggressive and wasn't a gang member. This is about...

    Morrissey Central "Minneapolis" (May 29, 2020)

    This isn't about black / white and many of the comments above miss the point. Essentially it's about police brutality and whether those who police us do so with consent or with arbitrary use of power and violence. It's not complicated. Those protesting are clearly from all ethnicities, united in...

    Morrissey Central "Tell-Lie-Vision" (May 24, 2020)

    The hysteria-driven reaction to the virus will certainly kill countless more than the virus itself. Attendance at A&E in the UK went down by over 50%. Heart and cancer services and all elective surgery suspended - and still struggling to get back to anything resembling normal. The impact on...

    Morrissey Central "Original Film Clip" (May 22, 2020)

    And what's your claim to fame? A contestant on Mastermind and looking like a serial killer? It must kill you that your specialist subject was The Smiths - now that you think their lead singer is a big racist.

    Ricky Gervais on those who don't play The Smiths for political reasons

    You're obsessed with black skin. What is your fucking problem with black people?

    Ricky Gervais on those who don't play The Smiths for political reasons

    RG is cool. Responsible for some of the funniest comedy to come out of Britain in recent decades. Like all good fools - pokes fun at received wisdom and closed minds.

    Bad Gays Podcast - S3E9 - Morrissey

    What on earth is a 'bad gay'? So gay people should all be pro-mass immigration? And if they are not, they are 'bad'? Isn't that as offensive as saying that all gay men should be camp and funny or good at colour co-ordination or have good taste in interior decor?

    Bad Gays Podcast - S3E9 - Morrissey

    What a load of bollocks. They start by saying they did a serial killer last time. This time they are doing Morrissey - and he's 'bad' because he has said things and sung about things they don't like. Wtf? And that makes someone as bad as a serial killer?

    "Hand In Glove" #10 in Rolling Stone's "The 100 Greatest Debut Singles of All Time"

    I have to admit too that HIG has never been my favourite Smiths song. I like it - but I don't love it. Much prefer Charming Man or What Difference. This Charming Man with Jeane as the b-side is the greatest gift The Smiths left to the world - period. Pop music as high art.

    Alain Whyte YT: "Sunny" - Safe At Home Sessions (May 18, 2020)

    Yes, BB is still there - although currently closed due to the lockdown. Will any pubs survive this?

    Morrissey Central Sara Cunial, Italia (May 18, 2020)

    It's a novel virus - so no one has any immunity. That has led to a small number of 'healthy' adults dying. But the mortality rate is very low. That's no consolation to anyone who has died or lost a loved one. 2/3 of those who have died probably would have died some time this year anyway (i.e...
