Morrissey: “A Giant Twat”

When it comes to the monrach, the Mozzer has never let a chance of slagging them slip by.  In his latest salvo, he’s blaming the death of nurse Jacintha Saldanha–one of the people duped by that Australian radio hoax–on the Royal Family.

Say what again?

Actually, he’s putting the blame on Kate Middleton, accusing her of “faking” her illness.  And he has this to say about the royals.  From Hollywood Life:

“Even with the recent story about the nurse killing herself in King Edward Hospital, there’s no blame placed on Kate Middleton, who was in the hospital as far as I could see for absolutely no reason,” he said. “She feels no shame about the death of this woman, she’s saying nothing about the death of this poor woman. The arrogance of the British royals is staggering, absolutely staggering. And why it’s allowed to be I really don’t know.”

The British press have pounced on the Mozzer, using words like “despicable.”  But here’s my favourite story.  It’s from The Sabotage Times:

Morrissey is a twat, isn’t he? Everyone knows that. Whether he’s coming out with his dubious neo-fascist nonsense or blaming Kate Middleton for contributing to that nurse’s death, there’s always one kind of crap or another falling from his miserable lips. It hasn’t always been this way, mind. There was a time when you would have thought he was some kind of miserable, four-eyed Jesus.

Preaching his moany gospel in early 80′s England. As if the place wasn’t miserable enough already, we had to put up with him singing about his broken bicycle on a hillside desolate and getting run over by a bus. And not having any clothes or something.

The thing is, I’ve ALWAYS thought Morrissey was a twat. Long before you thought he was a twat. Right from the beginning. Right from the first time I clapped eyes on him. “Twat”, I thought to myself. And I was right. Because the music that he constantly played said absolutely nothing to me about my life.
