MORRISSEY HAS COME UNDER FIRE IN THE LEFT-WING-CONTROLLED MASS MEDIA LATELY FOR PROUDLY WEARING A FOR BRITAIN PIN DURING TWO PERFORMANCES. HIS ENDORSEMENT, HOWEVER, HASN’T GONE UNAPPRECIATED BY THE PARTY’S LEADER.
THE FORMER Smiths front-man first set tongues wagging after he was spotted wearing a badge on his lapel which brandishes the party’s famous red and purple trident during one of his live performances, and has now been seen again wearing it on national television.
The politically-charged singer appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon this week, where he performed his rendition of Morning Starship from his upcoming covers album California Son whist wearing the badge.
It isn’t the first time that Morrissey has openly voiced his support for the brave political party that recently secured its first two Councillors in the 2019 Local Elections, and for it’s courageous leader.
Following the result of the UKIP leadership race that saw disgraced Henry Bolton take the wheel, he told one his audiences: “I was very surprised the other day – it was very interesting to me – to see Anne Marie Waters become the head of UKIP. Oh no, sorry she didn’t – the voting was rigged. Sorry, I forgot.”
“I have been following a new party called For Britain which is led by Anne Marie Waters,” Morrissey told NME last year. “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 any more, other than to say “you don’t agree with me, so you’re a racist.” People can be utterly, utterly stupid. “
Calling for more free speech in the political realm, Morrissey continued: “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.
“I find this compelling, now, because it’s very obvious that Labour or the Tories do not believe in free speech… I mean, look at the shocking treatment of Tommy Robinson… “
He added: “I know the media don’t want Anne Marie Waters and they try to smear her, but they are wrong and they should give her a chance, and they should stop accusing people who want open debate as being ‘racist’. As I said previously, the left has become right-wing and the right-wing has become left – a complete switch, and this is a very unhappy modern Britain.”
