Trolling the Manchester Arena bombing and the NHS: Morrissey sinks like a stone to previous career nadir depths...
The NHS comments at this Las Vegas, Nevada gig seem particularly inappropriate given the turmoil unleashed by the revocation of Roe vs Wade, yet he chose not to mention that epochal event.
How many attendees travelled from States that have immediately restricted all terminations for any reason? Travelling across state lines fir a pop concert? Fine. For banned medical procedures, maybe not so fine. I guess,Morrissey is in one of his 'stop watching the news' phases but then ehy comment on the NHS, which is currently being savaged in the right-wing press?
What are Morrissey's views on 1st-2ns-3rd trimester abortion given he once again claims his pampered life is a living hell?
Does he wish his mother had aborted him as a foetus or drowned him in a river the colour of lead upon his birth?
How many audience members in Las Vegas have, or have struggled with, inadequate insurance or under-insurance for themselves and family and friends in the privatised United States health care system?
Morrissey openly boasted of hiring a private plane to fly from Lima, Peru to Los Angeles, to be put under the care of his 'concierge doctor' after a bout of diarrhoea, despite having the financial resources to utilise the best health care available in Peru.
Did he want to fly his mother to some quack cancer cure Woo 'hospital' outside the UK?
Why does he think it's acceptable to comment on the NHS when, as far as we can tell, he doesn't support the NHS with personal taxes as he is domiciled for tax purposes in a foreign country, presumably to avoid settling with Mike Joyce after losing several court battles over his attempts to renege on legally watertight contractial obligations?
National Heath Service is indeed imperfect, especially after the ravages of Covid, which Morrissey mocked at the outset and still does with his risible comments on audience restrictions. There are 'bad people on The Right' who wish to use this crisis to collapse the NHS and usher in a private insurance policy model run by American 'health-care' behemoths. Whether he realises or not, Morrissey is explicitly aligning himself with these forces by making ludicrously biased comments based upon his undignified outbursts following his mother's death. He grants no such dignity to the mothers of Oslo, Paris and Manchester, using their tragedies to try to resurrect his career as a troll-controversialist. It isn't working. Nobody cares about a man so ashamed of the ageing process that he foists images of himself as a young man onto the 'clueless consumers' he now regrets alienating with his amateur analysis of complex sociopolitical events.
He is in the dustbin of history and there he will remain unless and until he accepts he has caused gratuitous offence for spurious, devious, shameless marketing purposes.
