    This is purportedly an extract from a Rolling Stone interview Morrissey did in 1986. It was posted on a Morrissey fan board in 2001. Whilst I have not seen this verified neither have I seen it exposed as false either. If it is accurate then he's been a racist piece of shit for quite a while now:

    This. It's getting so close to retrospective ruination level. Which would be a great shame.

    Do you only listen to records by artists who've passed your purity test then?

    It's just very sad when someone whose personality and music once seemed such a breath of fresh air has turned out to be a narcissistic hate-filled bigot/racist/nationalist - and in his case, who can't keep his fucking mouth shut about the country he chose many years ago, for whatever reasons, to not live in.

    I do not buy the lazy view that this is a question of racism - Morrissey is from a migrant family himself and grew up in an Irish immigrant quarter of Manchester. He’s no doubt been subject to racism himself.

    His view in fact speaks to a cultural confusion. In that sense he’s representative of millions of people in the UK - who the left writes off fatally in my view. Their response to the failure of capitalism to offer hope, provide jobs, build affordable houses, the use of free movement to destroy wages and union organisatio and so on has been to retreat to a mythical past that never existed. It’s also representative of the failure of the left to outline an alternative narrative to the right on these questions.

    On your last point however I think you are correct. If he wants ‘Britain First’ why has he fucked off from here? Plus given he’s not trapped in a collapsing town in the north or Midlands of England it can come over as the remote bleating of a millionaire.

    Though tbh I always thought the whiny, self piteous, narcissistic songs were a bit of a giveaway. Massive cunt.
