The NME are having another go at Morrisey here - http://blogs.guardian.co.uk/music/2007/11/mozgate.html
apparently he said something one of the wankers at the NME ( Who are the only people allowed to work for the NME ) didnt like ;
"The gates of England are flooded. The country's been thrown away."
A music-based interview suddenly veers from chat about the industry and Johnny Marr to ask Mozzer (who lives in Rome, an immigrant there as his Irish parents once were into the North West) if he'd consider moving back to Britain.
Morrissey:" ... [W]ith the issue of immigration, it's very difficult because although I don't have anything against people from other countries, the higher the influx into England the more the British identity disappears. If you travel to Germany, it's still absolutely Germany. If you travel to Sweden, it still has a Swedish identity. But travel to England and you have no idea where you are... If you walk through Knightsbridge you'll hear every accent apart from an English accent."
Blimey Morrissey you need to go to the Isle of Dogs mate - you wont hardly see any whites on the Isle of Bangladesh (apart from middle class tourists - read my earlier review on the white middle class tourists as mentioned in The New East End who just love diversity for the few months they live amongst it and then move away. Try living with it permanentely then comment ).
Morrissey as as I have said many times is a genius.
The order of true greateness goes :
4) Johnny Cash
Morrissey is clever enough to say what he wants about immigration in a way that does not give enough ammunition to the press so they destroy him ( eg Crispin Mills of Kula Shaker and Eric Clapton).
I bet he would say a lot more if he could, but he knows his career would be dead if he did.
As usual if you are junkie , thieving, heroin addict, peice of shit who cannot write a single good song - then the NME will insert its tongue up your arse until you are found dead in a squat with a needle in your arm.
Talk sense about immigration and the junkie scumbag journalist wankers in the NME will always have a pop.
Remember this Morrissey - FUCK THE NME.
No-one buys the shit rag unless they are an idiot, and no-one cares what they say or write.
