    I'm sorry but what pretentious **** tells somebody else what music they should like/listen to? Musical taste is entirely subjective and ***** like this guy shouldn't go around telling people what is good/right to listen to and what isn't.

      Morrissey is a classic obstreperous, pretentions, cocky hippy. I can't take him seriously at all; The Smiths were amazing but his solo career is a giant pile of gash.

      He is right.

      Nobody should listen to the Smiths. lol, but really I just think he's a bit of a self important ****. Morrissey too! Music is tolerable, but dislike his lyrics and DESPISE him as a person.

      If we were talking about music as an abstract concept, then I'd totally agree with you.

      In this case, however, Cameron was name-dropping The Smiths to further his political career, and Morrissey is the legal owner of that music, the creator of those lyrics, and it's entirely within his rights to comment on the public use of his own creative output.

      I wonder how he'd take it, me being a 'subspecies' and all...

      If you had to agree with Morrissey's politics to like the Smiths, no-one would ever have heard of them!

      Anyway, apparently DC wants to "repeal the Hunting Act, which would mean the brutal killing of foxes, hares, deer, badgers, otters – just about anything that moves". What an utter load of ****.

      Tbh I would not be surprised if he stopped the concert, went into the crowd, found you, threw the chicken on the floor then *****slapped you.
      However if I was there too I'd try to protect you :rolleyes:

      I'm never been the biggest fan of Morrissey as a person. But I almost can't blame him for bursting out with this. People see that 'David Cameron likes The Smiths' so they automatically assume that The Smiths are a bunch of Tory ********s.

      It'd be like Nick Griffin liking The King Blues, you're obviously gonna expect a reaction.

      - And obviously it's Morrisseys attempt at grabbing a headline again.

      "Music is the only universal language"

      How totally pretentious. And contradicted by "I forbid [David Cameron] to like it"

      You couldn't make it up really. I think self-styled artists sometimes forget there's a real world outside.

      Pretentious ****. David Cameron is the Prime Minister - this man is a nonentity who likes to think he is making art.

      Cameron should release "Coalition - The Musical" just to rile Morrissey, it could be like a reality docu soap and then at key times, they could break out into Morrissey and Smiths songs.
