Morrissey and the elephants

Some unquestionably positive Morrissey news now, by way of change: His intervention has helped win an inspection to check Manilla Zoo's elephant, Mali, is being kept in conditions befitting.

Morrissey's letter to the President of the Philippines demanding justice for Mali got this response:

Presidential spokesperson Edwin Lacierda said Wednesday, "We share the concerns expressed by animal advocates who have brought up the condition of the resident pachyderm. Rest assured, the responsible agencies will be swiftly implementing the order to ensure the welfare of Mali."
See? Morrissey can be a force for good when he puts his mind to it.

The President, Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III, has warned that if The Smiths ever reform, he'll be making bloody sure that Andy Rourke and Mike Joyce are treated properly.
