Another "terrorist" Captured....?

Sun Feb 26, 2006 12:31 am

US and UK authorities (the FBI and British intelligence services) have apparently seen it fit to haul in Morrissey!

http://www.mtv.co.uk/mtvuk/news/article.jhtml?articleId=50133210

La Moz was deemed worthy of being hauled in for his critical views on Bush, Blair and Iraq. Morrissey has also recently put his Los Angeles house on the market and may be coming back to Britain.

Not the first time either. When he wrote "Margaret on the Guillotine" he was hauled in by Special Branch over that anti-Thatcher song!

This, one may safely assume, is from Morrissey's publicist.

Like anybody listens to him. He's a has-been, and if true, a waste of tax-payer dollars.

Not a massive fan myself, but I don't recall him wilfully taking any oh so precious tax $
For a has-been his recent shows over here, at large venues, sold out in minutes.
Probably a non story-he's always been a contary person, but good, as there are too many horrid, soulless, stupid, corporate whores, only around due to clueless 'reality' shows, in this business.
Long may he continue to upset the terminally thick of this world.

Well until the Americans can be sure about what threat he poses maybe they should fly him in a VIP aircraft to some bizarre location and electrocute his bollocks. That seems to be the common MO these days.

Which, of course, gives the Government every right to conduct its Witch Hunts  banghead 

Somewhere out there, is a secret file on John Lennon. Of course he was considered a subversive too..."Give Peace a Chance"...How dare he say that?

You know you're risking a ban, as one of the moderators, IHAP, is a big Morrissey/Smiths fan.......  Silly


I listen to him, while his more recent stuff isn't as good as his early solo stuff (Which isn't as good as The Smiths as nobody can play guitar like Johnny Marr), it's still better than 75% of the music that comes out today.

His last record (2003/2004ish) was his most successful in about a decade or so. It spawned 3 or so top 10 hits in the U.K. and reached #11 in the U.S. And his upcoming tour has sold out. I am sure Morrissey is laughing all the way to the bank, and deservedly so. His last record was great and I can't wait for his new CD coming out in April  yes

Either that, or being wire-tapped for blasphemy against their god.

I could never get into his music. It was a girl thing, becuase he was a good-looking guy that made girls fawn over him. Yeah sure Sorry, not my kind of music. But I wasn't referring to his music. I was refrring to his political soapbox that he apparently thinks accentuates his political ramblings. Nobody cares what he thinks.

Morrissey doesn't need help pushing units, but if the FBI and the British Intelligence Services want to help I'm sure his record company won't mind.  dollarsign
