    Morrissey statement - true-to-you.net
    5 August 2014

    I am indebted to three sources that have placed their own well-crafted videos on You Tube for the song World peace is none of your business. The three individual sources are named as Sharon Jheeta, Héctor González and wpeace123456. These videos fully understand the intent of the song, and I am relieved that these films exist. Yes, a similar document ought to have been harvested by the record label, but please understand that the pop or rock industry can be as dedicated to perpetuating public deception as the world of politics itself. God bless social media!
    Liberty, equality and fraternity are the essence of the song; no monarchic rule, no political hierarchies, no bought-and-paid-for government thugs, security forces no longer beyond prosecution, and an end to megalomania, repression and corruption. Meat consumption is climate change, and if ever there were a self-evident lost cause it is the British so-called "royal family". Societies have never been so nervous; Pan Am Flight 103 differs not a jot from Malaysian Flight 17. The United Nations failure to imprison Tony Blair and George W. Bush for war crimes against Iraq has told us all that there can never be enough bloodshed, and the world is suffering its worst nervous breakdown. Do not feel powerless!
    Many apparently powerless causes have succeeded in shifting political stupidity and greed. You are intellectual sanity. It is possible for nonviolent change; there are more people than there are aging despots; there are more people than there are world leaders. In truth, the world is leaderless. Please stop watching Fox News; anti-monarchial Britain has given up on the BBC – we know that every slot is paid for. We know that the number 1 position on the pop charts is "bought"; this is not 1955.
    Thank you to all of my friends in Israel, Chile, Sweden, Poland, Argentina, Hungary, Romania, Finland and Italy who bought World peace is none of your business. It is 30 years on since The Smiths album entered the UK chart at number 2 with zero airplay and zero promotion, and the struggle for the airwaves remains difficult. Yet, I am writing this to you now, and you are reading it.
    In answer to many people who have asked, I should like to finally make it clear that I have not received any television invitations – worldwide! – to either discuss World peace is none of your business, or even to sing any songs from the album.

    Thank you for reading this. We have our first World peace is none of your business concert booked in Lisbon (Portugal) on October 6th.

    All we have is each other.

    for the animals, for intellectual sanity ...

      Damnnnn. Isn't this one of those things where his publicist is the one who needs to reach out for interviews, tv time, etc?
      Also, seems like he's not thanking the countries that didn't get him up in the charts because he feels as if whoever was number 1 bought their spot, lol.


      October 6th, nice!

      His statements have a way of making me feel excluded for some reason. :(

      Jesus Christ - I guess his pr 'make controversial statement' drive has kicked in


      'Thank you to my friends in Israel.'

      Really Morrissey tell me more...

      Is his appraisal of social media ironic ?! Does he even tweet

      Censorship by omission.....Israel was only not the only country thanked.....but you will play. All the people of Israel don't necessarily approve of the government......

      Eh? I remember the first Smiths album getting a monumental level of word of mouth, and being one of the most anticipated releases in years off the back of Hand In Glove, This Charming Man, What Difference Does It Make? and their b-sides.

      Zero airplay and promotion? What nonsense.

      Bravo. So true.

      That explains the media situation as well. To be honest, there are some amazing songs on WPINOYB and it would be very nice to hear one driving around Lancashire and Cheshire, in Stereo or DAB, but so far, not heard a single tune. Sad state of affairs for the music world because I have not heard Beck nor The EELS either. Nor Ed Sheeran (on Capital FM from Manchester each morning before 8am.)

      Always,
      Hazard

      I agree..Does he forget he has peel sessions on Hateful. he's so full of shit.
      He has also proved to be a complete coward by not damming the Israeli government - what a prick.
