Morrissey has responded to this by today posting a message on his Morrissey Central website titled, I've Been Dreaming Of A Time When/ the English/ are sick to death of Labour and Tories. Here are his words:
I despise racism.
I despise fascism.
I would do anything for my Muslim friends, and I know they would do anything for me.
In view of this, there is only one British political party that can safeguard our security. That party is For Britain.
Please give them a chance. Listen to them. Do not be influenced by the tyrannies of the MSM who will tell you that For Britain are racist or fascist - please believe me, they are the very opposite!!! Please do not close your mind.
Labour is hopelessly naive.
Theresa May’s policies have turned Britain into a international target.
The BBC has closed down.
The Loony Left is concerned only with victim culture.
For Britain will keep British society together. Violence is not the way forward.
There are many problems in modern Britain that have become too large for Theresa May to deal with - mostly because she created them in the first place. The press appear to deal only in fashionable outrage; inflammatory and unjust comments against any new party that threatens the same old bloody pointless two-party system.
The part of the message that grabbed me the most is the mention of Muslim friends. Although Morrissey may not like the ideology of Islam, it doesn't mean he can't have Muslim friends, and he obviously does, but the snowflakes will struggle to get their heads around this, even though it is basic common sense. As I have stated many times, I don't like religion, and really struggle to understand why anyone with an ounce of intelligence believes there is a God, or believes the words of the bible, but this certainly doesn't stop me from having religious friends, in fact, many of my friends have a christian faith. My mother has a Christian faith. I don't agree with their religious views, but it doesn't stop me liking them. I can't claim to have any Muslim friends; mainly because I live in an area where there aren't very many, but I certainly wouldn't let someone's faith be a barrier to a friendship, in the same way that I wouldn't let a football team be a barrier - some of my best friends support Southampton, which again makes me question their intelligence, but nothing more.
Anne-Marie Waters is obviously over the moon to have received Morrissey's full endorsement, and this afternoon tweeted, "What an incredible endorsement, I'm grateful and humbled. Thank you @officialmoz. Let me know if you're ever up for a chat. Thanks again."
Perhaps we should invite Ms Waters into The Wrong Arms. Or maybe not.
I have nothing else to add today, other than to mention that yesterday I received my first email from Morrissey in ages. It was actually signed by 'R'. It was only about two lines long, but it suggested that FTM may be getting a little something very soon. I shall keep 'em peeled.
