    Puddles covers "There is a Light" and "Everyday Is Like Sunday"

    Well, it's a USP I suppose. Is this what people have to do to get noticed these days? Isn't singing and playing guitar enough? :mad:

    Have a look at Craig Brown's description of Princess Margaret's former footman. Who does it remind you of?

    Tirade against the NME on Morrissey Official FB by Peter Katsis

    A couple of quotes from Churchill: "Democracy is the worst form of government, apart from all the others" "The best argument against democracy is a five minute conversation with the average voter" :)

    Tirade against the NME on Morrissey Official FB by Peter Katsis

    When someone starts a sentence with “No offence, but...“ you can guarantee they're about to come out with something massively offensive. I don't wholly blame Thatcher because the policy began under Labour. She accelerated it and every government since has failed to reverse it. Prescott did at...

    Tirade against the NME on Morrissey Official FB by Peter Katsis

    The system is deeply flawed, I'll give you that. As I said though, white British are now a minority in London. So obviously there are going to be a lot of non-white people working in councils, and living in council housing. Many of them must be second or third generation immigrants. Why...

    Tirade against the NME on Morrissey Official FB by Peter Katsis

    What Stalinspipe said is correct. I am not 'pontificating' I am giving you the benefit of my knowledge and experience, having worked for councils and housing associations and having many friends whose job is the allocstion of housing. Obviously I can't speak from direct experience about every...

    Tirade against the NME on Morrissey Official FB by Peter Katsis

    Chris De Burgh has massively gone up in my estimation. Fun fact: He and Nick Drake were at school together.

    Tirade against the NME on Morrissey Official FB by Peter Katsis

    I work in the world of housing and you are incorrect about "migrants get more points". That is utter bullshit, other than possibly in certain boroughs where there has been corruption eg Tower Hamlets where there was political corruption and another, I forget which, where the housing staff were...

    Can Morrissey keep his most hardcore fan contingent - Latino Americans - on side? - NME

    The lack of ticket sales was down to him scheduling dates too close to the recent gigs AND due to him losing some of the lefties in his fanbase. I met a guy at a gig the other day who was wearing a Smiths t shirt. Spoke to him about Moz and he said he would never again buy a Morrissey record or...

    Boris Johnson accused of 'going full Morrissey'

    Like most politicians Khan talks the talk on affordable housing but when it comes to the crunch and a Planning decision he lets it go by the wayside.

    Your Morrissey album Top 11

    That’s one reason I tend not to use streaming services. The instant availability of so much music means you tend to flit from one thing to another and judge on first impressions. If you buy an album, especially in physical format, you have to commit to it and give it a good try before deciding...

    Your Morrissey album Top 11

    Morrissey albums do seem to take a while to sink in. I didnt like ‘Ringleader’ at first but many years later decided I liked it. I may have misjudged ‘World Peace’ too. Or judged it by its worst horrors. I had it on in the car this morning and as long as you skip some aural torture such as...

    What would be your 'Open Letter To Morrissey'

    The Dalai Lama is Mr Teflon. Buddhism enjoys a similar leeway to the Royal Family in UK with everyone seemingly ignoring the downsides. Buddhists have carried out terrible violence but you rarely hear about it because everyone in the West has this image of peaceful monks who wouldn’t tread on a...
