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.

You want to have a religious argument; I don't. I think all religions are the antique ravings of failed poets. I don't know if what you say is true and I honestly don't care. The list of atrocities committed for Christianity's Jesus or Judaism's God, or even dear Poo-bear Buddha, is too long and dispiriting to even cut and paste. Good luck on your crusade.
If you had studied the basics about Islam you'd realise it's about politics and ideology rather than religion.

Stop. Please. You're embarrassing yourself. I could be a Muslim scholar. You know so little and you're furiously determined to beat your dead, ignorant horse for us all to see. Retire from self-abasement.
 
Because the left hijacked charity which is why charity is designed to keep people poor and needy. Erase socialism and catholicism and poverty will be gone.

I used to be so quiet and peaceful on this site but the furious idiocy on display lately have made me vocal. Not only couldn’t you prove the foul silliness you say, you couldn’t repeat it without stumbling over your own random, foggy words. Naturally you don’t have the courage of your convictions to own these words; as likely, you can’t figure how to create an account. With loops like you, who can tell.

Like a moth to a flame, poverty and catholics and socialism. Quite a threesome but the results of it won't win a beauty contest even in South America. I reckon a pan flute would take the main prize.
