In other news, just a few hours after I published my blog entry about Dave 'has been' Haslam yesterday, the Official Morrissey Facebook page posted a message about Haslam, calling him.....wait for it.....wait a little longer....."Has-been Haslam" - just another coincidence, of course. As if the global superstar, Morrissey would know that FTM even exists.
The Facebook message, which also criticised The Guardian for yet another article full of lies and deceipt, was signed by Peter Katsis, Morrissey's manager, but there can be no doubt that it was written by Morrissey himself.
Has-been Haslam has, predictably, today been lording it - thrilled that Morrissey has noticed him. As FF tweeted to me earlier this afternoon, "Nothing like self promotion off the back of old Mozza's name."
*STOP PRESS - LATE ADDITION*
The AlfsButton account was re-activated just after 3.30pm today, with Our Mozzer announcing:
"Due to heteful fake news and Dave Hassle attempted career resurrection the currently scheduled concerts are in jeopardy. Be warned."
I guess the cancellation of the Castlefields concerts would certainly piss on Haslam's bonfire, and it is perfectly understandable that Morrissey would not want to play with so many hate-filled people around. If the concerts do get cancelled because of Haslam, he will no doubt be the target of many very annoyed Morrissey fans.
