Post subject: Morrissey 'forbids' David Cameron to like The Smiths Reply with quote

Almost a quarter century after their band split up, Morrissey can agree with Johnny Marr about one thing: David Cameron is not allowed to like the Smiths. Following Marr's recent comments "forbidding" the prime minister to like their band, the former Smiths frontman has echoed the sentiment, citing Cameron's support for hunting.

"Stop saying that you like the Smiths," Marr said last week, "no you don't." Whereas the guitarist made his remarks on Twitter, restraining himself to just 76 characters, Morrissey used the blog True to You to issue 11 paragraphs of vegetarian vitriol. "I would like to, if I may, offer support to Johnny Marr who has spoken out to the media this week against David Cameron," he wrote. "David Cameron hunts and shoots and kills stags – apparently for pleasure. It was not for such people that either Meat Is Murder or The Queen Is Dead were recorded; in fact, they were made as a reaction against such violence."

He's definitely a big Smiths fan Rolling Eyes

I know it shouldn't but it really bugs me when people like Cameron say how much they love The Smiths, The Jam etc. for no other reason than I don't like him and don't want to think I have anything in common with him. Oh well, here's hoping he gets killed by an angry stag. Twisted Evil

Cameron's got a thing for liking music by people who'd naturally hate him. He picked Eton Rifles as one of his Desert Island Discs because he used to be an Eton Rifle and could relate to it. ("Eton Rifles is my favourite song. I was one, in the corps.It meant a lot, some of those early Jam albums we used to listen to).

This was Weller's riposte:

"Which part of it doesn't he get? It wasn't intended as a fucking jolly drinking song for the cadet corps."

Sometimes Paul Weller is right on.

Couldn't agree more ally - i really like weller and his attitude but the idea you can somehow stop people who you don't agree with buying your music is plain silly.

As far as that twat Morrissey is concerned........ Laughing Laughing Laughing

Maybe you could read the whole quote from Morrissey on true-to-you.net It might explain what his opinion is all about , rather than you just reacting to news paper headlines . Get the facts first.

Why would he not want to go on the Andrew Marr
show and confront Cameron it seems to me it would've been
an ideal oppertunity.

Not sure why . Would have been good t.v. though. Lots of stuff in his message make sense . Most people dismiss all things moz without bothering to take the time to find out what the man is all about . Glad you took the time to read it Ally .
