"All this over a pin?
Everyone always wants to jump to conclusions.
Morrissey has never been affiliated with any political party in the past. Morrissey has never voted in his life, and is not a member of any political party.
Morrissey opposes racism, hatred and press censorship. Morrissey believes in free speech and free expression and opposes totalitarian regimes. Morrissey has only ever met two political figures - Ken Livingstone and Tony Blair.
Morrissey currently wears lapel pins of James Baldwin, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Aretha Franklin, Oscar Wilde.
Morrissey is quite used to smear campaigns from the UK press. It is nothing new for us.
Thanks to the fans the CS record is currently # 2 at HMV today. And thanks to Merseyrail for all the extra press today!
A great holiday weekend to all. - PK."
