Morrissey responds to current events

Morrissey played London last night - Brixton, where apparently there was a minor kick-off later on - and offered his response to the riots:

Performing as rioting erupted in Brixton less than 24 hours after similar clashes in Tottenham, Morrissey criticised the prime minister's response to the incidents.

"Does anyone think that David Cameron has been to Tottenham? I don't think so," he told the crowd.

Later in the gig, Morrissey also referred to the student riots last December, according to the Evening Standard.

"In what our slanted media called the student riots, Charles and 'Camel' came face to face with the British public, without the protection of Buckingham Palace or the police,” he said.

“And what happened to them, I couldn't stop laughing about for weeks - no, months."
He probably has a point on Cameron.

Presumably he thinks the attack *was* more important than KFC, then.

(Also, what is this current infatuation with asking him about the monarchy? Surely he made his position quite clear first time around)

Yes, Morrissey, it is totally hilarious when a 63-year-old woman is pelted with paint bombs and jabbed with a stick. I laughed till I was sick, myself.

Then I saw a chicken in pain and I cried and cried and cried.

No matter what your position on the monarchy or on animal rights, you have to be able to see something's not right there.
