    Alain Whyte: Why Don't You Find Out For Yourself - Safe At Home Sessions (June 7, 2020)

    Great rendition of a great song. Vauxhall and I arguably the peak of Morrissey's solo career.

    The Metro: Morrissey’s pro Black Lives Matter tweet dragged on social media (June 3, 2020)

    I said in a earlier post about restraint training in mental health services in the UK. We stopped using prone around 5 years ago. Pressure on the neck and spine was stopped many many years ago. It is a well known fact in police and health that the holds they were using could cause him to die...

    I can provide stats but I choose not too, try educating yourself. You can't even hold a conversation without resorting to insults. Stereotyping is racism if it involves blanket racist statements such as the ones you made. No idea why I need to use a dictionary.

    The Metro: Morrissey’s pro Black Lives Matter tweet dragged on social media (June 3, 2020)

    Your reply has shown why racism still exists. Sweeping stereotype statements based on skin colour. Stats are easy to find, educate yourself and have a wee look instead of sounding like a Daily Mail reader. Stats can be used to favor a debate I agree but these stats, research and articles are...

    The Metro: Morrissey’s pro Black Lives Matter tweet dragged on social media (June 3, 2020)

    It's both. I used to teach NHS staff in mental health on how to manage aggression. We taught both verbal de-escalation techniques and physical techniques to restrain violent clients. We stopped the use of prone restraint around 5 years ago. We stopped any contact with the neck many years...

    The Metro: Morrissey’s pro Black Lives Matter tweet dragged on social media (June 3, 2020)

    No avoidance, Rigby was killed by terrorists whereas the protests are concerned wit the killings of unarmed black Americans over a numbers of years by law enforcement officers. Totally different issues. The killers of Lee Rigby were arrested and had punishment for their crimes. Black...

    Stupid comparison that has no relevance to current issues.

    Official YouTube "Live In Dallas" Starplex Amphitheatre 1991 premieres 05/15/2020; two more forthcoming according to Rhino

    The Live in Dallas and Introducing Morrissey period 91-96 were Morrissey at his peak for me. Great band, energy and quite possibly his best material. Managed to see him in Leicester around 91 and at the Aston Villa leisure centre around 95. The Aston Villa gig was just electric, my favourite...

    The world's oldest music store Spillers Records bans Morrissey albums

    Difficult to argue with your point. However I think some of the recent hatred and race crime is not as well thought out as your very valid points. I have personally seen racism in my line of work and in various other places in the last few years and for some there is a tendency to only see the...

    The world's oldest music store Spillers Records bans Morrissey albums

    I agree with that to an extent, I don't think he has particularly said anything that would make one say 'oh he's a proper racist' but I do think that by backing a party that supports certain people and their racist views then you run the danger of getting caught in the firing line. I've always...

    The world's oldest music store Spillers Records bans Morrissey albums

    I can agree to an extent that For Britain appear to be nothing more than a nationalistic party however their support of Stephen Yaxley-Lennon says otherwise to me. He is quite clearly anti islam which for me makes them a party that are opposed to a person or group based on their culture, colour...
