Morrissey hates most people, but particularly hereditary monarchs, so hopefully the Royal newlyweds won’t be too upset by the fact that the former Smith’s frontman recently performed in Argentina with a five-strong backing band wearing T-shirts bearing the slogan, “We Hate William and Kate.”
The professional miserabilist, whose hits include, ‘The Queen is Dead’, told gig-goers in Cordoba that. “The Falklands belong to Argentina,” and told fans not to ‘blame’ the British people because it is “the government that decides.”
Morrissey joins a growing list of celebrities who are backing Argentine claims to the British-ruled islands, where Prince William is currently stationed as a search-and rescue pilot for the RAF.
Sean Penn said last week that William’s deployment to the islands was “unthinkable.”
Britain accused Argentina of a “policy of confrontation” last week and summoned one of the country’s diplomats for an official dressing-down after Buenos Aires threatened to blockade British imports.
It is thought Prince William will stay for the 30th anniversary of the Argentine invasion of the Falklands, which falls on 2 April.
Sixty years and hardly a slip.
