Billy Bragg: “Morrissey has broken the hearts of a lot of people” - The Big Issue (26 June, 2019)

full



Whole article as brief:

"Not one shy to express his own feelings, Bragg said: “I think he’s decided that he wants to betray everything he ever said in The Smiths and he’s broken the hearts of a lot of people.
The Smiths expressed a lot of peoples own sense of disconnect with society and helped them to find their own identity – and he’s totally trashed that. I’m heartbroken for them because I’m a big Smiths fan too. And I’m heartbroken for Johnny Marr because he’s genuine, a lovely guy, and he doesn’t deserve to have his legacy dragged through the dirt.”

In his most recent comments, Morrissey reaffirmed his support for a far-right political party and said more questionable things about race that are not worth repeating here but easy enough to find online if you really want.

Bragg added: “I have no sympathy for him, no respect for him, but I have a lot of sympathy and respect for his audience.”"

Further to his recent Oswald comment, Mr. Bragg is cited by The Big Issue for saying more on his view of Morrissey's behaviour.
The Big Issue present things ambiguously, so when Billy actually commented is unclear (possibly end of May), but given his previous comments - I doubt he'd say anything different.

Regards,
FWD.

Billy and those people he is speaking for are gullible thinking they knew someone when they didn't. It makes you wonder how they missed out on it all those years cause a free speaking man like Moz will always change his mind on things.

I can never understand people with a mind set in stone who vote the same and think the same when the whole world around them changes all the time.

Those people live in the past and should take a borderline personality disorder test. It is not healthy to stick to the same views and outlook and it is like eating the same food every day. Changes will have an impact on everyone.

If Billy and those people he talks about think they have a broken heart now they will discover they always had one and perhaps placed a bit too much in others instead of growing as people on their own. But that takes effort and lefties tend to prefer to be served and God forbid if someone actually differ from the party line and come up with his or her own views.

Was going to post this on Bragg's FB page but since I've just come out of a 1 month ban........probably not the wisest thing to do.

You were gone for a month?

I wonder why they allow people to have accounts if it is that easy to get banned?

Mind you, my posts are sometimes not posted depending on which mod is in charge. Posting it again and another mod will approve it which tells me there are no standards here.

I had an arguement about Moz with an American ex fan and called him stupid. :grin:

I didn't even notice so I guess time flies.

In Sweden they arrest 78 year olds over online comments while others sell drugs and shoot people to death in the streets. The importance of controlling the internet is all about shutting down protests.

No way would they have allowed internet if invented today.

Yes. Extremely tough shift.
The rest of the week will be much worse. THE ZARA SALE has started.
Such sales everywhere in every country it seems. Impressive service though and my order a few years ago arrived from Barcelona in no time.

We went to Zara in Uppsala when dad was at the burns unit but that place sold really trashy outfits it felt like a porn shop.

You should get some rain shorts, URBAN. This would go great with the shine from your ̶b̶a̶l̶d̶ shaved head.
Where did that come from?

The shiny head is a myth and those that have that suffer from a skin disorder and you can use products for that.

Too gay for me.
