"This sorrowful Canada" - Morrissey statement on true-to-you.net

TTY has just published a Morrissey's letter about seal hunt in Canada:

This sorrowful Canada

The seal hunt in Canada is struggling to make a start this year due to almost no markets, and China especially is refusing to sell Canadian seal meat. Thank you, China!

China has stated that "animal rights protests" are the reason why they have dropped Canada's custom.

The annual East Coast seal hunt/kill started Monday - against a strong wave of trade and court challenges. Europe continues its ban on seal products.

Gail Shea, the federal Fisheries Minister for Canada, says that baby seals are "killed humanely", and explains how the baby seals are shot by high-powered rifles. Is this a death that Gail Shea would wish for herself? Would it make her happy to be shot by a high-powered rifle? If she considers such butchery to be so "humane", why doesn't she place herself amongst the tens of thousands of grey-coated harp seals that will be slaughtered within the next few weeks? She could then test the humane aspect of having her head blown off for herself. Only then could she be thought to speak with any authority on the subject.

Canada is a beautiful country, and the people of Canada are good people. But good people are often ineffectual. Internationally, Canada's sorry image is due entirely to its seal slaughter - which is greedy and barbaric, and it is dismaying to witness such ignorance in 2014. Sound reason tells us that only those of the thinnest intellect wear animal fur, and because the Canadian government are concerned with animals only economically, killing baby seals with lightning brutality is now Canada's primary global image. Until this annual massacre is abolished, Canada itself is regrettably fashionably dead.

Pretty much. Only they'll have to spend more money thanks to the exchange rate, spend more money to travel further, have to deal with crossing the border and just the general inconvenience of traveling to another country to see a show they should rightfully be able to see in their hometown.



Canadians.

If Morrissey were really a man of such high principle who took his own bullshit seriously, he would have had a stipulation in his record contract barring the release of World Peace Is None Of Your Business from the Canadian market...

If he took his own bullshit seriously he'd have long ago starved to death in a cave.

Very good point indeed. Will he stop Canadians buying the album? A bar on downloads from Canadian Amazon, iTunes, etc? Surely it wouldn't be a case of "I hate your disgusting practices, but buy my stuff"?

P.

How do you know he didn't ?

There are things that are worth getting worked up about and things that aren't. Whether Morrissey plays a concert in Canada, London or Timbuktu isn't up there.

Why should they rightfully be able to see him in their hometown? I forget how many of his concerts I've been to, not one in my home town, the nearest was over an hour away and the furthest he didn't even turn up to, I got worked up about that.

I don't quite understand why you keep mentioning "getting worked up." I'm not "worked up" over anything.

Because his boycott is laughably hypocritical on multiple levels.

OK.

Now imagine he boycotts your entire country over an issue he willingly ignores when he performs in Norway, Sweden & Russia.

I've stated many times in the past what a pillock this man has turned out to be and it now seems others are coming round to my way of thinking. He's such a hypocrite it would not surprise me if he becomes the Godfather of baby Eric Cowell at his christening. He's halfway there now rubbing shoulders with royalty favourites Sir Clifford and Tom the voice judge Jones.
Oh Los Angeles . . . So so so so much to answer for !

If you're not worked up about it then stop complaining over and over ffs. It's f***ing boring but you'll know that already.

This will no doubt run for 50 pages of utter shite so I'll leave you lot to it.

By that logic, your every reply so far has been you "worked up" about my complaining...

That's how it works. You have a choice. It's an online forum. You can browse, join in, leave at will. There's no compulsion. People spend time here for many reasons. At the moment I'm watching "Pointless" with my family, but I'm also reading this thread whilst answering the quizz show questions in competition with my wife and daughter. It's called "multi-tasking". It's not boring, and it keeps me from openingn a bottle of wine for another hour or so. You don't have to read "50 pages of utter shite". Or answer this comment with another one. So leave everyone else to it. That's how forums work. regards.

I agree with Morrissey 100%, but why the hell does he still tour Japan. Those Japs not only drown dolphins on purpose, they still kill whales.

Do you realise you used a racist word in your post?

I'm a Japanese user and really upset to see such a word.

You can criticise Japanese for killing dolphins and whales without a racist word.

I do not defend fellow country people who think it's OK to kill dolphins and whales.
They should stop such a barbaric act.

Incidentally I'm a huge Aztec Camera / Roddy Frame fan, really disappointed with your attitude.

uh, you again

Remember when you called Buzzetta a "silly sausage?"
He's still upset.

*sigh*

Someone actually explained that calling a man silly sausage in UK is NOT racist.

It was just a joke.

buzzetta might be chime in if he's still around.

You should not mix with earlier incident and a user AztecCamera's post.

Two album deal or not, World Peace needs to be both a commercial and critical success. Morrissey has been on the ledge beyond the edge for a few years now, due mostly to his own obnoxious idiocy. His paranoid conspiracy theories about record company incompetence won't survive a poorly received new album. He's running out of road. Expect some deeply offensive TTY PR running up to the release date.

AztecCamera's post is malicious.

Kewpie, there's a lot of things I shouldn't do.
But seriously, don't you think there are bigger issues on the forums than the comment I just made to you- as a JOKE?
