    One of those stories from the woke about how they now disagree with their favourite artist/writer/musician because their favourite artist/writer/musician expresses a viewpoint or opinion which differs from their world view and they don't know how to cope with that. There was another recent article like this in another New Zealand publication where the author gave up her love for Haruki Murakami because of how he portrayed his female characters. Fiction. It's a dangerous thing. Pity the author or editor doesn't know when to use the correct spelling for "you're".

      He is the way he is because people like you who never got what he is about yet thought you had some kind of idea. Your post has just won the projecting much award for 2019.

      Oh wait you also scooped the passive aggressive award and perhaps the Nobel committee tee hee tee hee will award you something Greta was not awarded for instead they chose a mass murderer from Africa for good measure.

      How do we know he doesn't vote? He can say anything he wants and do something else. However, even if he doesn't vote he has strongly admitted he supports Brexit, Nigel Farage and the right-wing party For Brexit.
      Nobody is asking him to re-think, because he doesn't give the opportunity. He should have the guts to give a proper interview and put the record straight. Some one as intelligent as him should know how to articulate thoughts and when to say or not to say certain things. He often throws the stone and hide the hand, and later play the victim. I've been adoring him since 1984 and now I'm finding it hard to follow him and defend him in a conversation about him. I felt directly insulted by him more than once, because his opinions about... Never mind! He crossed the line!

      Is New Zealand's Prime Minister still wearing her Muslim headscarf?

      What an absolute idiot.

      Morrissey is a proud Brexiteer and supports the For Britain party.

      In other words he loves his country and doesn't want to watch it die at the hands of globalists.

      Many of his fans - me included - are extremely proud of him.

      This would mean conceding they were wrong. Every sinew of their body resists this. They are ego maniacs. Everyone and everything must be twisted into their image.

      Anyone who had the ears to really grasp the sentiment behind Still Ill knows that Morrissey is a man who has grown into himself.

      Morrissey has his base. They will never give him up no matter what he does, but that doesn't change the fact that he is worthless to me. I am not alone.

      The lies, bigotry, and inexcusable victim shaming, are just part of it. I don't like the megalomania. The way he desperately tries to associate himself with the classic stars of yesterday. The (mis)appropriation of the images of James Baldwin. The astonishing conviction that his opinions are somehow important to the world. He seems to think he's John Lennon. Not even close...

      Yes it is always good to attack ugly fat people who for some reason believe that they in any way matter. A rule for attacking someone is that you must look better than a model as women of course always have to look their best whereas men can get away with murder.

      Sorry, but that is just the way it is. Fat shaming has a place in this world. She is not only obese but swollen from some kind of disease.

      What she really meant to say was "Dear Morrissey, I've taken a huge dump on you".

      Imagine the size of them this woman leaves in the stool. Cow sized ones and flies are desperate to enter her home.

      But if we ever move her from NZ the weights she is bringing to the place will make the planet unstable if moved anywhere else. She has a hell of a important job without knowing it.

      She’ll be back. And if not, that’s fine.

      It was very helpful thanks!

      No - I didn't really understand that fans felt so close to him. I loved his voice, loved his lyrics, but found the interviews a bit of train-wreck. I put that down to him having so many identity issues - all those clashing emotions are great for songwriting, but it must be hell to live with it in your head.

      For the media all three of those explanations might be true - I still find it peculiar that they'll ignore everything else about him, and will rip things out of context to make them look more conclusive & damning than they are - when the truth is probably more interesting.

      He has repeated some far right tropes, but I think he got there via a left-wing route - veganism, feminism, LGBT rights, freedom of speech, secularism & that's worth talking about, because he won't be the only confused liberal(ish)-lefty(ish) person going down it.

      Which is also why it's been irritating me that Billy Bragg has been getting away with denouncing Morrissey all over the shop for irredeemable fascism, while he's supporting Corbyn. We're under investigation for institutional racism & we still can't stop members from sharing neo-Nazi memes on social media or going to events with holocaust deniers or repeating conspiracy theories about Jewish businessmen. We can't even stop Corbyn doing it. At least Morrissey has the decency to be 'potty' & on the margins.

      I have no idea what you're on about - you'll have to translate.

      I've never thought he was ideologically coherent - if you can point me to the interview that wasn't a bit odd, I'll have a read or a listen.

      And if you don't believe him when he says he doesn't vote - why believe anything else he says?

      Don't you have anything to come up with and now you posted the most useless reply in Solo history.
