For some reason, the original Leicester Mercury story detailing Mark Morrison's feelings of alienation from his home town have disappeared, but luckily our friends at My Chemical Toilet caught it before it disappeared.
Morro, it seems, can't work out why he hasn't been clasped to the Midlands bosom:
"I showed Leicester the love and that city never showed me the love back. That place has shown me nothing but contempt."
Well, perhaps, but I suspect you're confusing indifference with contempt, Mark.
He's particularly upset that Gary Lineker and Engelbert Humperdinck are lauded by the city while he's... well, he thinks people are snickering at him, behind his back:
"I will always be the all-time musical great of your city. I'm The Beatles of that city."
Ah, yes, and 'Return Of The Mac' is Leicester's Yesterday, and... some other song by Morrison is the Helter Skelter, and... did he do three songs? If he did, the third one would be the city's Ballad Of John And Yoko, probably.
The City of Leicester has reacted to Morrison's claims that he will never visit the place again by building a massive tourism advertising campaign around the theme 'The one place you can be certain of never seeing Mark Morrison', although the Top 40 has been using the same slogan for several years.
