Morrisey, the whiny singer trapped in the eighties, has come over all anti-immigration. "England is a memory now," he has lamented in an NME interview.
In a classic series of quotes he told a reporter "Although I don't have anything against people from other countries, the higher the influx into England the more the British identity disappears. So the price is enormous. Travel to England and you have no idea where you are. It matters because the British identity is very attractive. I grew up into it and I find it very quaint and amusing. Other countries have held on to their basic identity, yet it seems to me that England was thrown away."
Living in LA he should know. The final twist? Morrissey's the song of immigrants. First generation.
