Morrissey is getting a lot of bad press for speaking up on his feelings about the Queen and the Royal Family. I think he makes a pretty valid point and I am happy he is speaking up.
Here’s a bit of what Moz said from his article he wrote for Hot Press:
“[The Queen] warned that any British people carrying anti-royal placards who are “seen in the vicinity of the royal wedding would be removed under the Public Order Act.” This means that any political dissent in England is silenced in order to protect the royals, which in itself goes against every principle of democracy.
The very existence of the Queen and her now enormous family – all supported by the British taxpayer whether the British taxpayer likes it or not – is entirely against any notion of democracy, and is against freedom of speech. For a broad historical view of what the Queen is and how she “rules”, examine Gaddafi or Mubarak, and see if you can spot any difference.
You won’t be able to.” – Morrissey
