Tuesday April 17 2018 (The real and proper Day 2407) - More messages from Morrissey

A pattern seems to be emerging - Morrissey publishes something on his new Morrissey Central website on a Monday, and I then write a blog about it on a Tuesday.

Yesterday's Message From Morrissey is titled There Is A Light That Must Be Switched On, with a sub-heading, Morrissey Talks To John Riggers April 2018. The piece is a lengthy in-depth interview, which I can't reproduce here as there is a request that it isn't reproduced without the permission of John Riggers c/o Morrissey Central. I have no idea who John Riggers is, but apparently the interview is for a Portuguese publication in September.

Here are some of the highlights:

1. Morrissey is taking SPIN magazine to court for publishing something that could place him in danger - presumably the article from November with the very fake headline, 'Morrissey Says He Would Kill "Vermin" Donald Trump "For the Safety of Humanity"'. SPIN really won't be able to offer any defence, as Morrissey DIDN'T say those words.

2. Morrissey doesn't believe the UK will be allowed to leave the EU - "The EU wouldn't allow it to happen. It is now a dead issue."

3. "'Even Tesco wouldn't employ Diane Abbott."

4. The Smiths - "It was beautiful, but it's gone." "The Smiths was a great but simplistic time." "The Smiths were explosive during the Rank tour. Before that, we were fumbling about - me, especially. My voice wasn't great. The music was always solid."

5. Loves all his solo albums, with the exception of Viva Hate and Kill Uncle - "I wasn't ready. I rushed in too quickly. It was my fault."

6. Racism - "the word is actually meaningless". "The modern loony left seem to forget that Hitler was Left wing!" "Racism is at its most abhorrent in relation to eating animals. If you eat animals, isn't it a display of hatred for a certain species? And what gives you the right to eat another species or race? Would you eat people from Sri Lanka?"

7. Politics/Animal welfare - "UKIP is dead". "There is a new party called For Britain. They have the best approach to animal welfare, whereas no other party even bothers to mention animal welfare."

8. Religion - "Animal rights must come before religion. Religion must cease to be the ONLY word. I am not interested in what people did ten thousand years ago."

9. New album - "It is under way."

10. On the subject of staying with BMG - "Well, they have very high walls." - (Ed - I think we can take that as a yes. Home may be a question mark, but Morrissey certainly seems to have found a home with BMG....or at least with Korda Marshall).

11. Privacy - "I'd like to play sports and swim and so forth but such places are usually full of people holding iPhones, and of course, before you know it there's a shot of you on someone's Facebook clinging to the parallel bars."

12. Low in High School Cover - "It wasn't actually my idea! The photograph was a big surprise to me and momentarily thought it was very funny. We were in a situation where artwork needed to be handed over instantly in order to meet a release deadline. I wish I'd had a bit longer to get it right."

13. Royal Family - "I am not fiendish where the House of Windsor is concerned. I resent being ordered to be in awe." "I wish no ill to anyone. I have been invited to Buckingham Palace three times". "Charles once sent a signed note. If I get a fourth invitation I will go. It seems rude not to! I am certain I could persuade Anne that eating horses isn't a nice thing to do."

14. Mayor of London - "The Mayor of London  tells us about "Neighborhood policin" - what is 'policin'? This is the Mayor of London! And he cannot speak properly! Civilisation is over!"

15. London's Acid attacks - London is second only to Bangladesh for acid attacks. All of the attacks are non-white, and so they cannot be truthfully addressed by the British government or the Met Police or the BBC because of political correctness. What this means is that the perpetrator is considered to be as much a victim as the actual victim. We live in the age of Atrocity."

16. On the subject of debate - "Diverse opinion is banned in England, debate is over. The most offensive thing you can do in modern Britain is to have an opinion and to talk clearly."

17. Concerts - "I believe Austria and Finland are on course for July."

As is the case following EVERY Morrissey interview these days, the loony liberal left-wing media have come out with all guns aimed at Morrissey with, of course, The Guardian leading the way - what a pitiful publication this once great newspaper has become.

And also, as has become the norm these days following an interview, a number of Morrissey's own so called fans come out to denounce him. One such fan this time around is Sean O'Callaghan (aka Fat Gay Vegan), who has posted a blog piece called We've Lost Our Boy.  It would seem that O'Callaghan doesn't like Morrissey giving support to the one political party that stands up for animal rights, and finds it offensive that Morrissey has criticised someone for not speaking proper English. You couldn't make this up. I am sure Morrissey will lose no sleep whatsoever knowing that the likes of O'Callaghan will no longer be attending concerts.


I don't know much about the political party, For Britain, so this morning I googled them. Splashed all over the Wiki page is that For Britain are a far-right party, but upon watching a video on Youtube featuring the leader, Anne Marie Waters, I am informed, from the horses mouth, that For Britain are NOT far right at all, which goes to show Wiki should never be taken as gospel. The more I listen to Waters, the more I think she comes across as a perfectly balanced human being. I also find that despite what the mainstream media would have everyone believe, Tommy Robinson seems a perfectly balanced person too.

In other news, Morrissey (as Dawn Mist) has this afternoon posted a message on my FTM entry of last Tuesday, it reads:

"The curtains are twitching. I am watching. No time for farewells, no space for welcomes."

I have no idea what it means.

And finally, I am pleased to report that the Morrissey online store, MPorium, has just started stocking Trouble Loves Me t-shirts in blue, so I have ordered one.

See you next Tuesday.


  1. As if to illustrate the James Baldwin quote recently posted on MorrisseyCentral, "Artists are here to disturb the peace", M shows yet again what a master he is at winding people up. The reaction of outrage to this interview perfectly illustrates M's observation that "the most offensive thing you can do in modern Britain is to have an opinion and to talk clearly." Gotta love how M is always one step ahead and has no qualms about speaking the truth, no matter how unpopular it may be. Lovely to see Dawn make an appearance - hopefully this might mean we'll see more of her in the near future.

  2. The Diane Abbott comment absolutely had me in stitches! Good to see Moz hasn't lost his sense of humour and goodness knows how he doesn't despair at all the crap!

    1. by the way Sabine you forgot to mention the whooping my team gave to your beloved spurs

    2. I was too busy getting drunk in Manchester 😁

  3. I guess once we saw the interview we all knew the usual suspects would come out screaming racist etc., it really is funny as my views are identical to Moz (i'm better looking though) it makes me laugh, if you dare speak the truth then you know there will be a backlash, I once was taken to task for saying that the mayor of London should never have been to stand for election because he once shared a platform with you know who, it is easy to see how he was voted in just walk through London no wonder some americans call it Londonistan, now that I have had the cheek to say it I guess that makes me a racist (hey ho), nice to see GOB on here

    1. Thanks, Manc! I just don't get all the hate and the backlash but I guess people just don't like the to hear the truth... I find it very sad so God knows how MOz must feel having had to put up with this kind of crap for years...

  4. Trying to be in a positive mode lately. I am enjoying the new site as it’s picking up pace .In the article I particularly enjoyed the exercise part. The image of him on parallel bars had me laughing out loud so hard that I scared the dogs, I wasn’t expecting that what I nice treat. I did not like the way he set him up with the Bowie question but M of course was very smooth , respectful and ahead a step. Thanks Ratty for the update I don’t know how you can put together something so quickly.. I am popping in and out over the next few weeks as I over committed. Please don’t think I’m gone or don’t care -I do. Very much so. Hope everyone is doing well .

  5. Do you think instead of Austria he meant Philadelphia? The two are often confused.

  6. Hi Ratty dear, as usual a new Morrissey's interview caused a tweet storm by the usual bigots who love to read only things as"I love life, I love everyone and my first thought every morning is peace!" Well, Morrissey is not for you, Morrissey is not for everyone! No one makes me smile as Morrissey, when I read about he was waiting for the fourth invitation from Buckingam Palace I lauoso loud that my neighbor knocked at my door and asked me should I try your drugs? Thank Ratty dear got keep on blogging, see you soon!😘👍🏻😂❤️

  7. The Lost Studio track, "By The Time I Get To Wherever I'm Going" is a delectable gem.

  8. A genuine Morrissey interview a day keeps the doctor away! I had a good laugh, but place a few question marks too. For example, I may have overlooked it, but not anywhere on the For Britain website do I see a link to the subject animal welfare. I don't see it at all actually in their campaign priorities. The UK do have a political party called AWP who are dedicated to animal rights, but don't talk about the other issues For Britain stands for. Anyway you figure it all out, they're not my elections.
    Love the lost studio track, and can't wait for the next album, and a concert near me would be just great! Finland maybe?
