Today is St George's day, but instead of celebrating all that is great about England, MorrisseysWorld has posted an article warning of the NEW WORLD ORDER. This article will no doubt send most readers away from the site and will once again have people labelling the author of MorrissysWorld a, "deluded and mentally unstable nutcase" (Uncle Skinny's actual words from Morrissey-Solo yesterday).

So if MW IS Morrissey, is he a 'deluded and mentally unstable nutcase', or are his warnings valid? Personally, I don't even want to think about the possibility of a New World Order, it is beyond the comprehension of my simple little meathead brain, but on a similar line, I am just about to attempt to sell my house, as I honestly believe that Europe is on the brink of collapse (the continent, not the long haired singers of 'Final Countdown' who I believe collapsed ages ago....hopefully!)

Five years ago we would never have believed that banks would go bust, but now, it is HIGHLY likely that COUNTRIES will go bust! Both Greece and Spain are struggling to repay their debts, and very soon they could go bust, with other country's to follow. The single Euro currency could very well collapse and the knock on effect to the UK will be immense. If this does happen, we could find ourselves in a depression to match the Great Depression of the 1930's. Crime levels will rise and there will be social breakdown. The up side will be that nobody will be interested in the overpaid Premiership footballers at EITHER of the capitalist Manchester clubs.

Of course, things like New World Order's and collapsing economies, have very little to do with liking the music of the former lead singer of eighties band The Smiths, which is why it is easier for most readers to dismiss MorrisseysWorld as the work of a 'deluded nutter', but if Morrissey DOES strongly believe that there is a new world order forming, he is not the sort of person to keep quiet about it, although having said that, if he comes out publicly and says it, he runs the risk of driving fans away, they just WON'T want to hear it. MorrisseysWorld therefore acts as a vehicle for Morrissey to air his 'real' views whilst hiding behind the mask of a parody website, thus not ruining his career. The downside is that he may lose his MorrisseysWorld followers, but as the number of actual believers is VERY small, he has little to lose.

I don't necassarily believe MorrisseysWorld is right about the New World Order, but there is certainly enough evidence to not rule it out. Ultimately, as I said previously, I don't really want to know, but an impending breakdown of the economy and society, does bother me, in fact, it's frightening.

Anyway, back to far more important things than New Order, Europe, or any other 80's bands, back to Morrissey, who earlier today performed in Tokyo. The set once again included 'To Give' and 'Last Night I Dreamt', and it was also great to see the return of 'Maladjusted'. I use the term 'see' very loosely because due to videoing restrictions in Japan, we may well not 'see' any Youtube footage, although an excellent video of 'How Soon Is Now' performed in Kawasaki has this morning turned up on Youtube, and it shows Moz in top form.

The first of two nights at the Zepp Tokyo saw Boz once again dressed as 'Gaynor Tension' (his drag name) in a fetching black dress and wig. The band were all (un)dressed in black speedos and according to a  tweet I read from '@junyamadera', Morrissey announced something along the lines of, "I don't know Manchester, I am from Nagoya."
  A not particularly clear photo shows that Morrissey finished the show dressed in a black t-shirt which said, 'JUST SAY NO TO ANIMAL TESTING' on it.

I have avoided tweeting today as I am fed up of all the abuse I am getting, just because I happen to believe that Morrissey is behind MorrisseysWorld. For now, I will just go about writing this blog, giving a reflection of my views, without allowing myself to get caught up arguing about MW. At the end of the day, everybody will make their own minds up, although after today's MW offering, the number of believers will probably half. One of those who DOES believe is of course Boy George, but there is no sign of the article he promised would be out today, in which he describes MW as his favourite tweeter, and what is more, poor old Boy George has this morning announced that he is leaving  twitter because of all the unsolicited spam he gets. No Happy St George's day for St Boy!

Yesterday saw the first proper gathering of the 'Blue Rose Society' at the Punch & Judy pub in Covent Garden. It was attended by; @loughtonlil, @cathyplus5, @GirlOnBike1102, @AIRRAID25, @mmedestaelghost and @RosyMires. None of them actually wore a 'Blue Rose' and half of them don't believe Morrissey is behind MorrisseysWorld, but hey, it's a start, and by Manchester, not only will they all believe, but they will ALL be wearing a rose, I'm sure of it!

And finally Esther, and finally Cyril, today is the 25th anniversary of The Smiths last performance together on a public stage, when they performed 'Sheila Take a Bow' on Top of the Pops. When The Smiths split, it felt like the end of the world, but the songs of Morrissey saved us. If I'm right about the economy falling apart, it may soon feel like the end of the world again, so who will we turn to this time to save us, the New World Order or MorrisseysWorld? I know who I'm gonna need on my side.

  3. Dark forces are losing their grip - hence the instability. Some short term pain but no need for panic. There is a bright future for planet earth and its pop music.
