Morrissey: ‘Brexit Was Magnificent’

pennine: Please pardon the late re- publication (on this blog) Of This great article. I didn’t come across it at the time, and this blog-let wasn’t up and running last October 2016. Perhaps had Morrissey been Anti-Brexit, a more Euro-fanatical media outlet (like  perhaps The BBC?) would have ensured his views would reach an even more widespread audience & he’d have been lauded as a hero by the biased corporation & all Europhilliacs. That which Morrissey told the Israeli website Walla about the BBC denigrating  Leave supporters, is correct as there’s been no hiding  the fact of the corporation’s pro-EU stance, even if they tried. The hand picked audiences on their debate shows and so on.

              The political pro-EU  army has been robust with even retirees  being wheeled out to voice their gripes  & threats of apocalyptic proportions should we even dare to vote to leave the EU.  Tony Blair was one of those has-beens,& ex-Labour  PM completely distraught  at the thought of us leaving. He seems to think we Leavers couldn’t have understood  what we were doing, blah blah ad nauseous. Of course we knew exactly what we were doing, many of us had waited forty years to do what we did on our Independence Day in June 2016.) Ex Tory bigwig  Michael Heseltine thinks “Brexit  needs lancing like an abscess.” (how charming,but  funny enough Mr Heseltine that’s precisely  what i think has needed doing  for a long time to the corrupt putrid EU )

                          So in view of  the ones with great political clout,the celebs & dignities & even Bombastic  Geldof  turned up to  use  a peaceful protest against the EU  in favour of Leave prior the Referendum by our disenfranchised British Fishermen to spew his ugly venom. None of these establishment Europhiles are poor or struggling-so what would they know about the realities & how it has affected real people? All these folk know is how the EU can profit them personally, their own self(ish)-interests, in their already great affluent state. But what was  won by Leave was indeed a  present day David against Goliath, People against the Establishment
a victory, a victory that has never known  rest ever since from the moans & remoanings of some Remainers ; a victory  never given a moment’s peace & justice  by those attempting to steal it  from our very hands. Indeed it’s quite believable (given the present climate) that the sad losers  would  even break our democratic laws  to achieve this theft.

                        Thank You Morrissey in speaking out.Well Said!!! Yes, Brexit Indeed Was Magnificent 🙂

Europe and Britain continue to thrash through the fallout from the British public’s decision to leave the EU four months ago, but as far as Morrissey’s concerned, the results were “magnificent”. 

The famously outspoken former Smiths front-man discussed Brexit in a recent interview with Australian magazine Faster Louder, saying that the media, rather than the actual events, are responsible for any negative portrayal of political events such as a possible recession.

Morrissey said: 

The British political class has never quite been so hopeless, but the same can be said for the USA. 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. What could be more grotesquely stupid than the Clinton-Trump coverage? 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 hypnotised 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!

 It’s not the first time Morrissey has voiced anti-EU sentiment or railed against the media. In August he told Israeli website Walla! that the BBC had “persistently denigrated” Leave supporters in the wake of the referendum, a claim that the corporation denied.

Morrissey said:

“I am shocked at the refusal of the British media to be fair and accept the people’s final decision just because the result of the referendum did not benefit the establishment.

“It was a shock to hear how the BBC persistently denigrated everyone who voted to Leave.

“They have managed to accuse, judge and convict the majority as racist, drunk and irresponsible.”

In the past Morrissey has publicly supported former Ukip leader Nigel Farage, saying he “likes him a great deal”, although that he only “nearly voted for Ukip”.

In 2012, the NME apologised after Morrissey began proceedings for libel against them for printing a quote in which the singer allegedly said, “The gates of England are flooded. The country’s been thrown away”.
