Morrissey: Brexit Was Magnificent And The Public Are Brainwashed
Smiths Singer says Brexit was a victory for democracy
Iconic British artist Morrisey has spoken out about his view on Brexit declaring it as “magnificent” for Britsh democracy. The outspoken singer said that the public cannot be hypnotized by BBC and Mainstream nonsense anymore.
The singer told Faster Louder: "What has happened is that news media can no longer attach any nobility to old-style politics because although politicians do not and cannot change, the people the world over have changed."
The Quietus reports: Railing against "media", he continues: "As for Brexit, the result was magnificent, but it is not accepted by the BBC or Sky News because they object to a public that cannot be hypnotized by BBC or Sky nonsense. These news teams are exactly the same as Fox and CNN in that they all depend on public stupidity in order to create their own myth of reality. Watch them at your peril!"
In the interview he also implies that he and The Smiths should have been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame before now, while he describes the ongoing commitment to keeping venues he plays gigs at meat-free "liberating" rather than "tiring".
