MORRISSEY ENDORSES THE “FAR RIGHT” – The melancholic vegan British rock icon is fast making a transition from eccentric to boycottable:
In an interview with author and blogger Fiona Dodwell, on 5th June, singer songwriter Morrissey of ‘The Smiths’ fame once again threw his weight behind the patriotic centre-ground party For Britain.
The singer this time endorsed the candidacy of Anne Marie Waters, For Britain candidate in the upcoming Lewisham by-election, stating: “It is the first time in my life that I will vote for a political party. Finally I have hope. I find the Tory-Labour-Tory-Labour constant switching to be pointless. For Britain has received no media support and have even been dismissed with the usual childish ‘racist’ accusation. I don’t think the word ‘racist’ has any meaning anymore, other than to say “you don’t agree with me, so you’re a racist. ” People can be utterly, utterly stupid.”
Morrissey then went on to call the For Britain leader a ‘humane version of Thatcher’, saying:
“Anne Marie Waters seeks open discussion about all aspects of modern Britain, whereas other parties will not allow diverse opinion. She is like a humane version of Thatcher … if such a concept could be. She is absolute leadership, she doesn’t read from a script, she believes in British heritage, freedom of speech, and she wants everyone in the UK to live under the same law.”
Waters is a former Labour member, whose new party sounds like a lovechild of Nigel Farage and Tommy Robinson, which means that the mainstream media would likely label it “far right”. Personally, I think the term “populist” or “nationalist” are far more accurate. These terms are less emotive and don’t raise the immediate spectre of fascism, which is of course why the media avoids them in their reportage in the first place.
For Britain campaigns not just for Brexit, but to bring down the entire European Union, temporarily freeze immigration and deport illegal immigrants, speak honestly about the impact of Islam on society, and to make the public sector more accountable.
Along with a policy to ban all religious slaughter and enhance animal welfare, Anne Marie Waters proposes making chief executives of public services like the NHS, and local councils, more accountable. Her party believes in giving local people the power to sack chief executives who do not do their job.
“For Britain – It’s just not kosher (or halal)” would make a nice campaign slogan.
As for Morrissey, he has been increasingly outspoken in a decidedly un-woke manner, the dam bursting in the aftermath of the Manchester bombing. We shall see how this prolonged British Kanye moment goes him, but I think I can smell some trendies burning their vinyls of “Meat is Murder”.
