Not one to shy away from expressing his true feelings on the royal family, Morrissey is on the attack again - this time going after The Queen, calling her a "dictator."
"She would not hesitate to turn her tanks on the British people.
The royal family, to me, are not England, and they are not the flag. So, therefore people can become misguided into believing that the Queen is the heart of England, and that she represents England. But she doesn’t in the least.
There are people like me who were not interested, and we're many in number, and we're not easily fooled. And we see the Queen as the ultimate dictator. And it is dictatorship. It's forced upon the British people. Of course, if the British people decided tomorrow that the Queen must go, then the Queen wouldn't hesitate to turn her tanks on the British people. It would happen. Because the police are commissioned to protect the Queen against the people of England. That’s their first and foremost task. And I find that absolutely absurd."
Whoa, whoa, whoa. Okay, we get protesting against "the man," but tanks on the British people?? Really?!? That seems a little extreme, dontcha think??
