You just don't get it do you? The spirit of the Smiths, the spirit of Morrissey is anti-royalty, anti-wealth, anti-establishment, anti-Thatcher, anti-McDonalds, anti-meat industry, anti-bigotry, anti-right wing...
Whoops, he's just gone and told everyone to vote for a far-right party. That will only remove a massive chunk of his fan-base, that will only stop radio stations across the land from ever playing his new songs again, that will only stop record shops from selling his music, indie night clubs from playing his songs, music websites from stocking his albums, anyone from ever wearing a Morrissey t-shirt in public again. His legacy, reputation, viability as a modern recording artist are all being destroyed. There is nothing positive about this. There is nothing wayward or radical about siding with the richest and most powerful people in the world through the promotion of far-right politics. It is completely and utterly destructive. When will you understand this? There is no wayward forward unless he retracts that support.
No - you don't get it.

You don't get how UK politics has changed - he's not supporting the rich & powerful - if he was his 'viability as a recording artist' wouldn't be dented. He's as anti-establishment & anti-bigotry as he ever was. You just don't know what the establishment or bigotry is any more. For example:

Helen Steel - of McLibel fame - has been banned from hard left events for being a 'transphobe' & she's one of many socialist women on the lists.

The Manchester Report confirmed that accusations of racism were used to cover-up the abuse of vulnerable girls.

The Labour Party was nearly wiped out in the general election, our core support is now rich people in London & students in university towns AND we're being investigated for institutional racism.

His reputation might be in a bad way right now, but his legacy is fine - even if he loves Anne Marie to the bitter end - because there is nothing she will ever be in a position to do that's more shameful than some of the political scandals that are coming down the line.

He is wayward, he is radical. He will be vindicated.

My honest and open heart from Carlislebaz at Leeds . Is the normal fucking shit.... same old shit list I’m afraid , the only decent song was call me morbid call me pale. I’ve spent ..... sorry folks ,even I have had enough.... same old gloom.... bullshit morrissey....fucking Paris .... yet again.... I’m so disappointed tonight people, moz haters, lovers , but Paris has just pissed me off tonight.... bad review.. by me to be honest it could have been sooo much better, but it wasn’t...... 2 out of ten moz , you sucked tonight
There were a lot of ballads in that set list CazBaz. Not perhaps the riotous return to Leeds you were hoping for?

No I actually find it sad that his silly mouth has turned an awful lot of his loyal fan base away.
Loyal fanbase were in Leeds tonight and made me proud to follow Moz since 1982...anyone who has jumped ship has got their knickers in a twist over nothing and that's a FACT!

I’m genuinely pissed off hovis, a complete and utter let down... B side heavy, and the worst of live songs ever, my worst ever moz gig... no enthusiasm from the start... he comes on and defuses any static from the very beginning, completely slows the gig from start to finish hovis..... won’t be back no more ... it all could be so much better.... good luck with you London gig my friend...... you’ll fucking need it..... piss poor

I’m totally and genuinely heartbroken, I’m in my hotel room, now sober and can’t believe what me and my daughter have seen last night. Voice and band were great as always...... but the lack of thought and input with the choice of songs last night..... I’m not taking this well at all, I thought that it may be time for moz , as we have all done for years , to shake things up ... but no... no ... . I won’t be going out of my way anymore for the same crap when it could be so much better......... heartbrokenbazz.

I may be wrong, but if you compare the set for this show to the first one of last year then I think there are only around 8 songs that are the same.

That's a pretty impressive turnover for a legacy artist.

Rough lyrics:

At Jim Jim Falls
I fall in love
At Jim Jim Falls
I fell up from Hell

If you're gonna jump then jump
Don't think about it
If you're gonna run home and cry
Then don't waste my time
If you're gonna kill yourself
Then to save face
Just kill yourself

At Jim Jim Falls
I fooled and fell
If I were you
I'd stick to your own canoe

If you're gonna jump then jump
Don't think about it
If you're gonna run home and cry
Then don't waste my time
If you're gonna kill yourself
Then to save face
Get on with it

If you're gonna sing then sing
Don't think about it
If you're gonna live then live
Don't go on about it
If you're gonna kill yourself
Then for God's sake...

If you're gonna sing then sing
Just don't talk about it
If you're gonna live then live
Don't go on about it
If you're gonna kill yourself
Then for God's sake
Just kill yourself

Bit chilling since the 'narrator of the song' appears to be talking to himself.
 
Anyone know who the female artist singing in Spanish (I think) was on one of the videos played ?

Probably has nothing to do with the song, but I find it interesting.

From Rolling Stone
Are you ever surprised you’ve kept your artistic inspiration burning for so long?
No, because I haven’t ever given myself over to the demoralizing aspects of marketing. I paddle my own canoe.
