Day 1747 - Don't dictate

All remains quiet in MorrisseysWorld, with no sign of Our Mozzer, Mademoiselle Fifi, or any other pessoa in The Wrong Arms during the course of the past week.


The world of Morrissey is also quiet, with the only postings on True-To-You being an announcement that Moz will play Berlin on August 16th, and a link to a 2011 music video called All Over by Chiddy Bang; which is heavily influenced by I'm Throwing My Arms Around Paris. I am not surprised that it has taken 5 years for Moz to be made aware of the song, as it is DREADFUL.


In other news, the UK's EU referendum has come and gone, and as predicted by me in my previous blog entry, it was nothing other than a Tory leadership battle; although the way the clueless and headless masses have reacted on both sides of the vote, you would think that either the world is ending, or Britain has suddenly become a Utopia - all that has actually happened, is that Old Etonian, David Ca-moron has lost his job, and Old Etonian, Boris Penis will now replace him; unless that is, Boris falls at the final hurdle, and is pipped at the post by career politician and Oxford graduate, Teresa Might.

The British public seem to have no idea that they have been hoodwinked, and that the referendum was nothing to do with Europe. What is more, none of the other political parties seem to realise it either, and I'm not even sure that the King of Conspiracies, David Icke has realised it.

The jubilant 'Leave' voters, who had 52% of the vote, are claiming, "It feels great to have our country back", but what they don't seem to have realised yet, is that they HAVEN'T got their country back - not that it actually went anywhere in the first place, as the Tories HAVEN'T officially resigned the UK from the EU; with Boris very quick to state on Friday, "there is no need for haste". Of course there's no need for haste, Boris, BRITAIN AIN'T LEAVING, AND NEVER INTENDED TO.

Furthermore, in light of the fact that the Scots and Northern Irish have voted to remain 'IN' the EU; and are now subsequently talking about breaking away from the United Kingdom, the Tory Government will need to make sure this DOESN'T happen; not only for their own benefit, but more importantly, for the benefit of their master, Elizabeth Battybird.

Poor old Queenie, it's all gone a bit pear-shaped for her. She let it be known a number of times during the referendum campaign that she wanted her subjects to vote the UK OUT of the EU; no doubt thinking that it would give back power and purpose to her and the rest of the sponging House of Windsor cast, but it hasn't quite gone to plan. The majority of The Queen's subjects DID vote 'Leave', but unfortunately for Lilibet, the Scottish dictator, Nicola Stalin, now has more clout than Her Maj, and so the people of Scotland voted how instructed by her instead - Battybird must really HATE Sturge.


So, how long can the Tories avoid actually leaving the EU before those who voted 'Leave' start to realise they've been had? They have initially bought time by saying that they have to elect a new leader, but if Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty hasn't been invoked by Christmas, there will start to be rumblings. The UKIP leader, 'Nicotine' Nigel Farage, called for the UK to quit as soon as the result was in on Friday morning, but Farage is already a has been - no longer needed by the Leave camp, who have already cast him out, and an embarrassment to UKIP's sole member of Parliament, Douglas Carswell, who has been quick to distance himself from Nige now that the referendum is over - so Nigel's calls for an immediate exit have been completely ignored; although the longer the Government goes without invoking Article 50, the longer Nigel and UKIP will hang around. As for Carswell, it is surely only a matter of days/weeks before he rejoins the Tory party, and quite possibly finds himself a place in the Cabinet.

The 48% of the UK who did as they were TOLD by their political leaders, and voted to 'Remain' in the EU, are currently feeling very let down indeed, and are venting their anger on social media; spouting the biggest load of garbage imaginable. MorrisseysWorlder, Marcus the Greek, is trying to convince anyone who will listen, that the 52% who voted 'Leave' are all jack-booted racists. Thankfully, no one is listening. The Guardian has a lot to answer for, but then again, so does The Scum newspaper, which is partly responsible for the 0.000000000000001% who actually are jack-booted racists.

Last Thursday's 'Leave' vote wasn't about race; although there is no doubt that the wishy washy  immigration policies of the main parties played a part in the thinking of some people, the 'Leave' vote was a mass protest against the elite, and against the political system in general - both in Europe and the UK.  It was all very well the political elite warning of a financial armageddon if the people voted to come out of the EU, but the nation proved that the only region in England and Wales who are interested more in money than anything else, are those living in the bubble of London. The people of Cleethorpes and Clacton don't care about the state of the stock exchange, it says nothing to them about their lives.


The aftermath of the referendum vote also looks to be having an effect on the Labour party. Jeremy Corbyn should have seen the referendum for what it was, and should NEVER have got involved in the Tory party leadership battle - he certainly shouldn't have jumped into bed with David Ca-moron. Corbyn was supposed to represent the workers, and standing shoulder to shoulder with an Eton toff is NOT the way to show solidarity with the people.

If only Jeremy had said, 'I am having nothing to do with this charade', he would now be in an incredibly strong position, but instead, he finds the Blairite members of his party trying to hang him out to dry; not giving a shit what Labour is supposed to stand for, only interested in trying to win power at any cost, and with the Tories now looking as though they are moving further to the right, the Labour right will look moderate in comparison - the only question is, who will play Blair's role this time around, Hilary 'Mr' Benn?


It would be a crying shame if Corbyn were to be ousted as the Labour leader, as he has been the first leader in years of any of the major parties who genuinely seems to care more about people than his own political ambitions. Having said that, Jezza hasn't stayed true to his own beliefs, and has sold out a few times in recent months; none more so than during this referendum, so he only has himself to blame if he's booted out. Let us hope Corby can ride out the storm; the Labour party, and the country, will be worse off without him.

There is no such leadership battle going on with the Liberal Democrats, mainly because they only have 8 MPs, all of whom backed the same losing horse. Rather than trying to win back all the many thousands of disgruntled former Lib Dem voters who have just voted Leave, the Lib Dem leader, Tim Farron has announced today that he will base his next election campaign on returning the UK to the EU. It's not a bad way of attracting disgruntled Labour and Tory 'Remain' voters, and is yet another reason the Tories will think twice about pushing that Article 50 button.

If the new Tory leader doesn't press the button, and Britain remains in the EU, then God only knows what the Lib Dems will run a campaign on, and God only knows who will actually vote for them.


It has been an exciting few days in the UK, and it looks set to continue for a bit longer yet. In a bizarre twist of fate, 'Nicotine' Nige WON'T want the Tories to push the button to Leave, because the longer they don't, then the longer he feels relevant, whilst Remain's Nicola Stalin and Tim Barren now WILL want Brexit, because politically, they and their respective parties now have more to gain from the UK leaving. It's a funny old world.

If the new Tory leader does eventually invoke Article 50, then we will be in for some REAL fireworks. If the Scots (and possibly Northern Irish) go, then Lizzy's Kingdom would suddenly become not only disUnited, but also very much smaller.  It would surely only be a matter of time before the people of England and Wales rejected the House of Windsor too. If Boris pushes that button, then it'll be a case of, God save the Queen..... what do you mean there's no God? For fuck's sake, give the poor cow a break.

*Goes off singing* Tooorn between the two, right or wrong there is no answer, don't tell me what to do, it's my choice, don't dictate, don't dictate, don't dictate to me


  1. 2 out of 15 paragraphs of this blog post are actually about Morrissey's world/Morrissey, the rest of it is none of my business. Not because it's not My country or I'm ignorant, on the contrary, I have been following it all on Social Media, the very voice of the people via their mobiles, and not some studio puppet reading off of a script. What I will agree with you on is that the public were "played", their fears and weaknesses used against them,  doesn't it make sense that a senior citizen would want to vote "out" for "stronger better funded NHS" and that completely blows up the morning after the vote, it does even matter who is in charge the good guy or the bad guy, One person's good guy could be another's bad guy. The rhythm of life goes round and round. I hope the people of Britain can pull the wool off their eyes and come together to see themselves through this.

    As for chiddy bang, I really think it's a generation thing. They have had the best that music could offer them. It doesn't surprise me that they'd be listening to Moz I mean that already shows me an ounce of intelligence. Maybe give it another listen I actually kinda like it if I could go all over the place, I would.

  2. The campaign on both sides was all about scare mongering, lies & keeping people in their place. The Brexit campaign slogan "take back control" is hilarious.
    The result has sparked off some very worrying racial hatred attacks. These people are halfwits, hopefully in the minority. But we can not allow our streets to be high jacked by bigots.
    I struggle to have a positive outlook for the future, our NHS is slowly being taken to pieces. Funding for mental health & social care is being cut, the economy is jiggered. And on a very selfish note if/when we do leave EU, my plans to live in Spain when I retire are also scuppered.

    Anyway, on a positive note I am looking forward to trips to see Moz in Norway & Berlin, rose in hand.

    1. Excited to hear you're able to go to these concerts!

    2. Cheers me dear. Hope you soon have news of dates you can make.

  3. Haha!!!!
    Check this out!

    1. Fame, fame, fatal fame.... but it would appear that MSN nicked the story from Gigwise:

    2. The quotation turned up in a book too!


    3. Just found it - The Smiths FAQ: All That's Left to Know About the Most Important British Band of the 1980s by John D. Luerssen (Published by Hal Leonard Corporation Sept 2015):

  4. Applause for the Rat and his brilliant analyse of the Brexit! I remember discussion about What difference does it make...coincidence? Have a nice evrning!

  5. I'm not sure how voting to Her Maj's dog whistle and Sir Rupert's headlines can be seen as an anti-elite statement.
