Morrissey Goes After The Royal Family Again!

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."

He added:

"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??

    Very extreme. Get the fact that he'd be pissed that tax dollars are used to support figureheads . . . but still . . . and the Queen is old school so give her a bit of a break. Her father was King George VI - the one who rallied the country during WWII.

    maybe he should leave the country then. What an ass. Just because they eat meat and hunt doesn't mean that being a vegetarian is for everyone. Your an extreme animal rights activist. Pulled out of festivals because you could smell meat…get over yourself. It comes across the same way…like a dictator. Go home, hope you live in a meat free zone cause my BBQ is on and we are cooking up some delicious smelly hamburgers…

    this guy is delusional…bitter old man.

    As if the Queen has the power to command British troops. I liked his music back in the day, but he needs to keep the trap door shut, understand what the word dictator really means, and take a basic civics course. With only a secondary technical school education, hes not exactly a political scientist. Perhaps he should move.

    The Queen doesn't really have that much power, does she? She's more of a figure head who takes part in nonpartisan events. Parliament and the PM make the policies and carry them out in the Queen's name. I understand she may voice her opinion and offer advice, but the elected members of Parliament make the decisions. And because the Queen stays nonpartisan, she does represent the people of England. You don't have to like her, but in times of tragedy or celebration, it seems the country looks to her.

    Well at least those who normally bash the Royal Family actually have a reason. This is just ridiculous… Dictator? How, she has no power… Army? What army? What tanks? And even if she had them she wouldn't just randomly turn them on the British public, I mean… what the hell?



  7. 7

    What an idiot! Not only is this insulting to those who live in a true dictatorship it also highlights his complete lack knowledge on the subject. I would rather people think of the queen as the heart of England than some washed up ignorant pop-star.



  8. 8

    Absolute nonsense, the Queen is merely a figurehead and does not make any major decisions in Britain. Morrissey is just being an idiot. Again.

    Actually it wouldnt be that much of a surprise. The police here have been given free rein over the last year or two. People get held without lawyers, 'kettled' for hours into the night (including children) beaten into hospital by the police, people are threatened and assaulted, dozens of people were arrested before the royal wedding just in case they were thinking or thinking about protesting, a guy in a wheelchair was dragged out of his wheelchair and beaten at a protest, another beaten so badly he needed surgery, not mention the Tomlinson case where an innocent passer by was killed by the police and dozens more cases like this. The police face no disciplinary actions for any of this. This is a scary time to be British. We'r facing a summer of strikes and protests, probably with more violence from the police.

    You probably didnt get what he said. I understand him saying its a dictatorship - not because the Queen is a dictator, but just because the system is forced - you are not able to change it into a republic / its forced. But at the same time you cant change a republic either and every revolution brings tanks on the streets. Just imagine Germans or French people wanting a such revolution.
    So, Morrissey, i dont think you really thought about this one…! Police will try to save the Queen exact the same way as they will try to save the president. Just like they try to say Kaddafi in Libia.
    Sorry for some possible english mistakes.

    What an ignorant disgrace, hating for the sake of hate, without even being capable of logical thought. She doesn't even have the authority to turn tanks on anyone, let alone her people! Loser.



  12. 12

    Not to mention that he's a spoiled rotten, entitled Brit who wouldn't recognize real dictatorship if it bit him on the ass.

    As extreme as having a Royal Family in this day and age.

    He doesn't know that. Going after her for some fictitious scenario to support your wtf argument is really *out there*. He doesn't have to like the monarchy, but damning them for something they haven't done and I doubt they would ever do? Alrighty then.

    Besides that, I find Queen Elizabeth II to be a steadfast example of respectful leadership.
    On the other hand, he is not evidenced by his comments. It almost sounds sour grapes.

    Re: tallguy10 – She is a dictator. She owns JP Morgan Chase Bank privately as its largest class A shareholder and the Federal Reserve as well, as JP Morgan is the largest controlling shareholder of the 12 majpr banks that own it privately. As for the British troops? Why would she need them when she has the entire American military at her disposal. Her real last name is Saxe-Coburg-Gotha and she is German Jewish, not English Catholic. In 1952, she was coronoated as Queen, but her coronation was the coronation of 'King Solomon' of ancient Israel. Evil.

    does anyone even care what this old peice of shit thinks? he just needs to eat a burger. his lack of protein is making him delusional.

    Who gives a damn? I'm an American. Fuck if I care.

    Re: the Period – Protein deficiency can cause all kinds of organic problems alright. On another note, he seems so angry that I wonder if he had a rough coming up where inequity of station was deeply felt.
