Bigmouth strikes again, as Morrissey has caused controversy by praising former UKIP leader Nigel Farage as a 'liberal educator'.
The Smiths turned solo star has made headlines in the past for being associated with controversial political statements. Now, in a new Australian interview, he has hailed Farage and George Galloway, while slamming the BBC and London Mayor Sadiq Khan.
“Liberal educators such as George Galloway and Nigel Farage,” he begins, promisingly, “they are loathed by the BBC because both men respect equal freedom for all people, and they are not remotely intimidated by the BBC.”
When speaking of Sadiq Khan, Morrisey said: “He eats halal-butchered beings, and talks so quickly that people can’t understand him – and that suits the British media perfectly.”
Meanwhile, Morrissey plays his only UK show of 2016 at Manchester Arena on Saturday 20 August. Support comes from Damien Dempsey. Tickets are on sale here.
Morrissey recently made headlines after hitting out at both Donald Trump and Hilary Clinton - while also being very vocal about claiming to be groped in an airport, his attack on Barrack Obama and his ongoing battle with cancer.
