Legendary Smiths frontman Morrissey has had his say on the state of Britain at the moment — and he’s not holding back.

The singer songwriter, who has historically been on the Left of politics, also had strong words for Diane Abbott and Leftists who brand all right-wingers racist.

Speaking in an interview for his website Morrissey Central, the singer said:

“The mainstream media will only encourage pop artists who have nothing to say. We are meant to keep our nose out of politics even though we are all living, breathing humans and as much a part of 2018 life as anyone else.”

Morrissey was then asked how he felt after being accused of supporting the Leave vote in the EU Referendum.

The singer was typically ferocious in his reply:

“Accused is the correct word! It isn’t possible to be congratulated for supporting Brexit, is it? That should tell you all you need to know about the outstanding lack of neutrality within the British press.

“It’s all a pointless argument anyway because, as you’ve surely noticed, Brexit did not happen.

“The EU wouldn’t allow it to happen. It is now a dead issue. The people said Leave but the EU said no. People wanted to leave the EU because of the complete erosion of freedom under EU rules, and the fair-minded majority now see in even more frightening ways how very much they are hated by the EU, not to mention the British political elite.

“How England is today is a country that is not leaving the EU. Hungary, Italy, Finland and Poland will leave before the UK is allowed to. A second referendum is muttered about but people don’t realise how a second referendum will see an ever higher percentage of people voting Leave.

“What then? A third referendum?”

Morrissey refers to the Loony Left several times during the interview, and was quick to point out that, despite accusation of racism directed to Right-wingers, Hitler and the Third Reich were Left-wingers.

“Labour are no different from the Conservatives in that they do not object to FGM, halal slaughter, child marriage, and so on.

“There is no moral clarity with these people, and you shouldn’t vote in a certain way simply because you always have. Do you have the nerve to vote differently?

“If you have any concern for animal welfare, for example, you cannot possibly vote for either Conservatives or Labour, because both parties support halal slaughter, which, as we all know, is evil.

“Furthermore, halal slaughter requires certification that can only be given by supporters of ISIS, and yet in England we have halal meat served in hospitals and schools! UK law is pointless.”

And perhaps most incredibly, Morrissey then went on to back the For Britain party — something that would get him excommunicated in this country if he still lived here.

Morrissey said: “There is a new party called For Britain. They have the best approach to animal welfare, whereas no other party even bothers to mention animal welfare.

“The EU will not protect animals from halal or kosher practice. For Britain seem to say what many British people are currently thinking, which is why the BBC or Channel 4 News will not acknowledge them, because, well, For Britain would change British politics forever … and we can’t have that!

“If you love animals, you really cannot vote Labour or Conservative. Give animals a break. They’ve done enough for you. Let them live.”

But the best of Morrissey’s rant was reserved for Sadiq Khan’t, the Mayor of London who has presided over the biggest knife crime epidemic the capital has ever experienced.

“London is debased. The Mayor of London tells us about ”Neighborhood policin ” – what is ‘policin’? He tells us London is an ”amazin ” city. What is ‘amazin’? This is the Mayor of London! And he cannot talk properly!

“I saw an interview where he was discussing mental health, and he repeatedly said ”men’el ” … he could not say the words ‘mental health’. The Mayor of London! Civilisation is over!”

Here’s the wonderful interview in its entirety. Perhaps it will give others the courage to speak their minds.
