Interviewed in Australia recently Morrissey made the following comments….
“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!”
He then added….“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.”
Now we are all entitled to our own views on Brexit but what do you think about Morrissey’s claim that the BBC and Sky News are complicit in some way, that they “object to a public that cannot be hypnotised by BBC or Sky nonsense” – has he got a point or is this yet more ‘mad Mozza ranting’? Let us know…..
