    "IT BREAKS YOUR HEART IN TWO" - Morrissey Central (January 2, 2020)

    Fine, since we're not all industry insiders here, care to supply a link? I'm not particularly bothered either way, but those numbers look suspiciously like the numbers which appeared to be reported for the first week sales.

    "IT BREAKS YOUR HEART IN TWO" - Morrissey Central (January 2, 2020)

    I think the 25,000 and 8,000 figures are for UK first week sales.

    Do Latinx Fans Still Love Morrissey (And Will They Show Up At Hollywood Bowl This Weekend)? - LAist

    It's an interesting thing with 2nd generation immigrants, some of them seem to turn hyper-nationalistic towards their adopted country, more so than the "natives".

    Morrissey Central: "The Guardian of Hate" (October 10, 2019)

    Let's assume this is the case for a minute - what you just described sounds exactly like a hard Tory manifesto rather than any kind of globalisation conspiracy.

    Morrissey Central: "The Guardian of Hate" (October 10, 2019)

    There are slightly more prosaic explanations for this than a Zionist conspiracy high up in the British government, don't you think? From what I can tell, the Assisted Passage Migration scheme was financed by an Aus government eager to encourage more culturally similar immigrants - not exactly...

    Morrissey Central: "The Guardian of Hate" (October 10, 2019)

    ??? BTW Nice strawmen Moz. Because it's really down to the fact that someone doesn't support Labour or is against Halal.

    Morrissey Central: "Girl Most Likely To" & "Altar" (3 September, 2019)

    Lmao. That's actually pretty funny.

    Billy Bragg: long statement re: Morrissey on Facebook (7 July, 2019)

    Being against ethnic-based bigotry and group victimisation is not necessarily 'defending Islam' (or any other religion). But people seem to like to confuse this.

    The Independent - Morrissey Central (25/6/2019)

    Well, I wish we didn't...! (..or at the very least, recognise that they are generalisations)

    The Independent - Morrissey Central (25/6/2019)

    Perhaps, depending on your area. But why alienate everyone else by grouping them in with the extremists? In doing so, you're just giving more legitimacy to the extremists, by attempting to recognise them as the single authentic representative of a much broader group. Same old same old.

    The Independent - Morrissey Central (25/6/2019)

    It's cherry picking the worst examples though and then claiming this is representative of the entirety. There is a point that the Muslim population in the UK is over-represented by some of the more extreme socially conservative groups, if Moz et al. would argue against this instead of whining...

    The Independent - Morrissey Central (25/6/2019)

    This is not "Islam" though - this is a group consisting of very socially conservative, poorly educated people, mostly originating from rural parts of Pakistan. You can see similar problems in parts of nearby India in relation to sexual harassment of women. Sure, religion plays a part in terms...

    "Morrissey hasn’t turned right: our establishment has turned insane" - The Spectator (2 June, 2019)

    Well, good luck with that, but I suspect that many are being manipulated by those same politicians who don't have any misgivings about selling out their nation. Brexit: NHS could be 'on the table' as part of US trade deal, ambassador says

    Like this for example? Politicians across the EU back away from TTIP after leak—but Cameron ploughs on
