Morrissey's Royal Rant

He was most recently sighted in Argentina wearing a T-shirt sporting the legend "We Hate William and Kate," so no surprise the British miserabilist Morrissey has used a recent media interview to renew his attack on royalty.

"I wasn't surprised by Harry in Vegas because he's always been an absolute idiot," Morrissey said in an interview with the Herald Sun in Australia.

"The monarchy is foremost a business, and it's important to them that the British public continue to finance the excessive luxurious lifestyles of the now quite enormous, wasteful and useless 'royal' family. I find it very sad...They are the most dysfunctional, unpleasant and arrogant people on the planet. A sour soap opera, and they should resign and retire.

"Can you imagine how the Prime Minister of Argentina viewed Harry in Vegas? Or the Pope? Or the Archbishop of Canterbury?"
